Overdeities

    The Evil Entity 
The Evil Entity, the Unholy Unexpected Eldritch Being (The Nibiru Entity)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_evil_entity.png
The Entity's true form.
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: His coffin
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portifolio: The Cause of Everything Bad in The Series, Corrupts Anything Around It, Doing This While Still Sealed, Deep, Evil Voices, Hams It Up Like Nobody's Business, Omnicidal Maniac, Responsible For All The Costumed Weirdos, Completely Evil, One of The Darkest Villains In The Franchise
  • Domains: Elder Gods, Corruption, Destruction, Vileness
  • High Preist: S O U L
  • Herald: Professor Pericles, his top minion.
  • Allies: Molag Bal, The GUAD, Bill Cypher, The Dark Matter Horde, Solaris, Nyarlahotep, Shuma-Gorath, Yapool
  • Enemies: Mystery Inc. (Including Scrappy Doo), The Bedtime Stories Crew, The Investigation Team, The Ghost Stories Gang, H.P Lovecraft, Dr. Strange, The Good Ultraman Deities, Kirby
  • Unimpressed With: Dark Gaia
  • Crystal Cove was a weird place. As the Scooby Doo gang could attest to, the place was crawling with weirdos in costumes looking to make a quick buck, as well as useless adults too busy with their lives. It came to its natural climax, however, when the devious parrot Prof. Pericles aimed to release his "master" from the depths of the town. Eventually, he managed to free him, and the result was The Evil Entity (Often called The Nibiru Entity), an evil member of a race of benevolent EldritchAbominations who seemed to destroy the universe, the thing responsible for the state of the town, and unlike the gang's previous costumed freaks, was far more powerful than anything they had faced so far, something that no-one could've seen coming. Eventually, after it destroys Crystal Cove and eats everyone there, the gang manages to destroy him, erasing him from existence and undoing any corruption he had done in the process.
  • One day, the gang had just busted a mystery caused by a mysterious villain, which was business as usual. The odd thing was, this particular villain was awfully ruthless by their standards, even nearly blowing up the House of Celebration out of spite. When they finally caught the villain, they were naturally shocked to find out that it was none other than Scrappy Doo of all people. Whats more, he seemed outright traumatized by what had transpired. While the gang was wondering what had come over him, seeing how he also had no memory of the crimes he committed, Fred suddenly had a worrying idea, one that they had to visit a certain Dr. Strange to confirm. And indeed, the doctor confirmed that the worst had happened: The Evil Entity had arrived. Thankfully, it seemed to be still sealed, but considering the damage he was capable of when he was before, it wasn't very comforting to them. The gang is now ready to take on anything that the Entity could throw at them, though Scooby and Shaggy would at least rather confront it with a tank than deal with it in person.
  • How is he in the Pantheon? You can thank Molag Bal for that. He was thoroughly impressed by the fact that a villain like him can be in such a lighthearted franchise, not to mention how unexpected he was, and thus, with the help of a few of his more powerful allies, managed to recreate the Evil Entity. However, there was a catch: he would ascend still being sealed in his sarcophagus, and would once again have to manipulate his way to freedom. To compensate, he gained a new power: the ability to manifest a hallucination of his true form, useful for more direct communication. The Entity, for the most part, accepted these conditions, as it had been able to free itself before, and surely it can do it again, especially with more evil deities around. And yes, he has considered that someone could put up a fight should he be freed, and is looking for a way to rectify that by making some allies.
  • While he's still technically allies with Bal, he would later find much more fitting allies in the form of the GUAD, an alliance of similarly omnicidal beings hell bent on destroying everything. While The Entity would rather ravage the universe by himself, he nonetheless realizes that having allies in a world where heroes are just as powerful as villains might be a good idea in the long run. The GUAD themselves were happy to accept him into their ranks for the most part, though the whole "Being sealed deep underground" thing showcases a problem with actually destroying things.
  • One such ally is Bill Cypher, a psychopathic being bent on turning the world into his own playground. Seeing how they were both currently incorporeal beings looking for a physical body, they decided that working together might be the best idea for now, though seeing how they have different goals, one could imagine that a huge fight would break out if they do succeed. Naturally, it has made enemies with Dipper and Mabel, and while corrupting their pig Waddles probably wouldn't help him too much, he senses great potential in Gompers of all people, stating that there's something strange about that goat, something Bill agrees about.
  • Its MO is basically that it corrupts whatever mystery solving team steps foot near it, starting with the Team Pet and going up from there. This has made the Pantheon's many mystery solving teams unite against him:
    • The Investigation Team has dealt with beings as powerful, if not more, as the Entity, so it was no surprise when they started opposing him. In particular, it has shown an interest in Teddie, seeing how it's the closest thing to a Team Pet that the team has. He figures that if he can get his perverted personality out of the way, he could be a powerful agent. Teddie, naturally, wanted nothing to do with him, even after the Entity tried bribing him with the promise of a "Beautiful Wife to call your own".
    • He has also gained the attention of the Bedtime Story Crew, who at first were thrilled at the opportunity to document a being like him, especially considering its past as the Token Evil Teammate to the Annunaki. However, the thing was counting on them to be thinking this, as he then proceeded to slowly corrupt them into coming further and further into his sealing location while hiding it as a simple documentary. It wasn't until Mystery Inc. intervened that they snapped out of it, and made them realize just how bad of an idea it was to even acknowledge the thing existing, destroying the remaining footage they made of the documentary.
    • It had an... interesting interaction with the Ghost Stories crew. Or, rather, their cat, who's mind he invaded in order to corrupt him directly. The Entity though that corrupting what seemed to be the most normal Team Pet of the bunch he's encountered would be an easy task. It wasn't until he actually got around to corrupting it that he learned the truth: the cat was already possessed by a incredibly snarky demon, and one who had no interest in joining him. Or at least, thats what The Entity managed to get out of the interaction, as it was mostly just the demon insulting him and flipping him off. To say that the Entity was genuinely baffled by the interaction was an understatement. Doesn't help that the cat later told the rest of the crew, meaning that he had to deal with them as well.
  • Managed to make allies with The Dark Matter Horde, a horde of similarly terrifying beings in an otherwise lighthearted setting. It has promised them that he'll let them rule and corrupt whats left of the universe after he destroys it, something the Horde agreed upon. That would be fine for him, if it wasn't for the fact that their arch-nemesis was Kirby, a small puffball who's known for basically killing Elder Gods before breakfast. With this in mind, helped out by one of his more recent adventures hinting that his origin is far more cosmic than one would assume, has made the Entity genuinely worried. It has since put the puffball near the top of his priority list, alongside Mystery Inc. themselves.
  • Another being he's gained the interest of is Solaris, a cosmic being that was split into two versions of itself, Mephilis and Iblis. This is thanks to the fact that they too were erased from existence upon being defeated. The Entity has since lended his hand to helping the two become one again. It is not, however, impressed with Dark Gaia, who he condescendingly considers to be "An oversized earthworm who was defeated by a mortal and minimal outside help". And no, this has not endeared him to Dark Gaia in the slightest, knowing when someone is insulting it when it hears it.
  • Any cosmic horror would inevitably be compared to the works of H.P. Lovecraft, and The Entity was no exception, having been compared to a combination of Nyarlahotep and Yog-Sothoth. As expected, both of the entities have struck up an alliance, with Nyarly being fine with any way of devastating the universe, though he has entertained the idea of also freeing Yog, so that they, in his own words, "Tag-Team the universe with two elder gods, side by side!"
    • Because of this alliance, he has decided to visit their creator, Lovecraft himself, and thus manifested in his dreams one faithful night. In it, he boasts that the universe will be destroyed the second he's released, and promises that Lovecraft would be sparred if he pledges his allegiance to his cause, clearly not intending either following up on that promise, or taking no for an answer. To his alarm, however, Lovecraft was completely unimpressed with his threats, having heard that threat about a few hundred times already, and tore into the cosmic entity that it was nothing compared to his creations, or even the ones from the Pantheon, and is ultimately "An oversized earthworm who was defeated by some mortals and minimal outside help". It has never bothered the author ever again, although some gods could swear that rampant swearing could be heard underground that night.
  • While not quite dismissing him to the extent that Lovecraft did, Dr. Strange also doesn't consider The Evil Entity to be anything special, often taunting it with the nickname "Discount Shuma-Gorath". While he is perfectly willing to take action against the thing, expect Strange to be spewing out snarky insults in the process of fighting him.
    • What does have him concerned, however, is that the aforementioned nickname inspired him to seek out the aforementioned Shuma-Gorath, the extremely powerful (And somehow even hammier) elder god that's able to freak out Dormammu. Shuma, happy to discover new ways to screw over the universe, was delighted to help out The Entity with his plight. The Entity is a bit annoyed with Shuma constantly boasting about his power, but otherwise it's a worryingly stable alliance so far.
  • He has also made an alliance with the monster maker Yapool, who relishes in human despair and creates monstrous creatures out of said negative energy just to cause more misery. The Entity, who specializes in bringing the worst out of humans, has recently been lending a hand in creating a few of them, resulting In more dangerous creatures than ever before. As a result, this has gained the attention of Ultraman and his fellow deities, who are more than happy to lend a hand in stopping him, having faced threats of his scale before.
  • Can also be found in Fearsome Archetypes.

  • Heralds: General Rilldo (Myuu's Dragon), the Luud Cult and his machine armies
  • Portfolio: Explanations That Raise More Questions Than They Answer, Mechanical Lifeforms
  • Domains: Mutants, Control, Villainy (both), Possession, Mutants, Revenge, Hatred, Control (Baby), Genius, Metal, Machines (Dr Myuu)
  • Banned from: The House of Health and Diseases
  • Interested in: Star Dream (Dr Myuu)
  • Allies: Cooler, Malware

  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Gorilla Grodd, each other
  • Enemies: Every Saiyan, especially Goku and Vegeta (and by extension the rest of the Z-Fighters)
  • Opposes: Deities related to the sun (Baby)
  • During the Saiyan-Tuffle War, the Tuffles had an inkling they were doomed. To preserve their genetic code and get revenge against the Saiyans, a project would be made to create a bio-mechanical parasite that could possess people through wounds and even alter them to become stronger. The parasite proceeded to mastermind the Machine Mutants' creation and get revenge against what's left of the Saiyans. Even if he'd become worse than the Saiyans to do it. The living machine Dr Myuu believed he had created Baby as his masterpiece for universal domination, but in reality Baby made Dr Myuu.
  • Applies to them both
    • The duo come from a separate continuity from the current Dragonball Super one, however they did notice a number of similar entities to Baby; the Comme-san and Watagishi parasite have similar abilities to the bio-mechanical being. Some have snarked that their Canon Discontinuity fate was because the explanation of Baby making Dr Myuu makes no sense; he was still developing as a bio-fetus. Some believe that the Tuffles made both and Dr Myuu would ensure the parasite's creation. One thing's for sure; the two do not like working together given Baby disposed of Dr Myuu. However it's in their best interest to work together and ensure their goals come together.
    • Initially only Baby had ascended, and then re-ascended later on(long story). However rather than being deterred by the stigma of the Voodoo Shark, Dr Myuu embraced it as a justification to join and watch over his creation. Despite being killed by him, he does have some fondness as he is "his" masterpiece. Strings were pulled for this to happen, and it was eventually revealed the mastermind behind this was Gorilla Grodd. He felt Baby's abilities to possess people and Dr Myuu's genius would aid him in "solving the human question" and played on their rage at their precursors' race being destroyed by savages. While they were indebted to the Killer Gorilla and Grodd considers Saiyans not much better than humans in his eyes, he is still a simian and they have difficulty working with that. Grodd feels they're letting their racism blind them from the bigger picture.
    Grodd: "The Saiyans are monkeys, not gorillas or apes like myself; they have tails after all.
    • The two of them were able to make a more agreeable alliance with the rogue Galvanic Mechamorph; in his huge yet fragile ego, Malware found himself relating to Baby's plight against the Saiyans and ability to spread and infect other beings. Baby can't seem to do so with fully mechanical life, so the two of them working together helps a lot. Dr Myuu was able to make some headway working with Malware as his genius could help improve Malware's capabilities and aid in their mutual domination schemes. Within their own universe they were able a proper alliance with Cooler. Cooler was almost killed by being thrown into the sun like how Baby was completely killed, and both have a score to settle with Goku and Vegeta. Dr Myuu offered his services to improve his Meta-Cooler army with Machine Mutant technology, and the oldest son of Cold was all for it so long as it aids his empire and proving he's better than Frieza.
    • Baby hates his nickname, and since no-one knows his real namenote  prefers to go by "Tuffle", "King Tuffle" or just "Neo Machine Mutant". Mentioning the song "Baby" is a Berserk Button for him. Dr Myuu meanwhile is perfectly fine being called Dr Myuu, just as long as people don't mistake him for the Mythical Pokemon. He has cited some interested in his namesakenote  and would love to experiment on both the New Species Pokemon and its Modified Clone for his own takeover schemes. Naturally they both oppose this, but Dr Myuu thinks he and his Machine Mutants have the upper hand as they should count as Steel type, which resists Psychic types. Key word being "think".
  • Applies to Baby
    • Initially held the role of Puppeteer Parasite, then Revenge Before Reason before fading into obscurity. Though bitter about being kicked out, he is not so petty as to resent the Headcrabs or Ren Hakuryuu over this. He spends a lot of time in the House of Vengeance plotting how to get back at the Saiyans despite being as bloodthirsty and power-hungry as them and the culprits being long dead.
    • He shares hypocrisy, deep hatred for the Saiyans and clouded good intentions with Zamasu, being close to his Goku Black aspect thanks to the Grand Theft Me element. So far, he is one of Zamasu's few genuine allies. He works well with Shinobu Sensui too; both want to get back at races they see as deeply evil. The alliance with Zamasu involves an interaction with a Goku Black who killed a version of Trunks, and went on to another timeline where he helped Baby kill Goku. After that, however, both Baby and Black had to fight Broly, who due to the high Zenkai boost during his fight against Gohan and Goten, managed to achieve a Super Saiyan 4 transformation. Baby and Black decided to fuse into a distorted version of Vegito and killed Broly once and for all. This also awakened the Beerus from that timeline, but time will tell what happened after that day...
    • Alters his hosts to be more like Tuffles, and isn't limited to just one person. All he needs is a scrape, and at his height possessed everyone on Earth. The ability to exploit even small wounds makes him a threat to the House of Health and Diseases, which led to his banishment. His assimilation prowess also led to him catching the attention to the Thing, however it regards Baby as a rival more than anything; given he can make his host bodies stronger, definitely a major threat. The two attempted to infect each other, but this failed as they found each other too similar to infect.
    • While it's a physical instead of spiritual possession, he has decided not to risk possessing Marona. He knows what she does to people to try and hijack her. He will however try to hijack Garfield Logan, as he considers his ability to transform into different animals combined with his own abilities extremely useful. Same with Ben Tennyson and his alien transformations, but there's a question of how it might work given Zs'skayr couldn't hijack his alien forms. There was also the time he managed to find a lone VUX Intruder and possessed the VUX captain piloting it, but it didn't take long for the possessed VUX to find a mirror. The VUX was so disgusted at their new appearance that they suddenly fought back against their possession and took out a ray gun, [[Driven to Suicide in order to shoot themselves to death, killing that VUX and Baby in the process, with the ship self-destructing.
    • Holds disdain for solar deities as the only way he was eventually put down for good was by being thrown into the Sun. As he is usually able to regenerate from almost nothing, it's believed that extreme temperature and force could replicate this...or at least seriously wound him. Ellen Ripley certainly believes in being thorough. Baby doesn't consider her a threat, but he did consider her mortal arch-nemesis the Xenomorphs as potential hosts. Ultimately he's decided against it as its refusal to obey anyone and incredibly acidic blood might make it incompatible.
    • He was interested by the superficial similarities he shares with Agent Smith; both of them have assimilated populations en masse, though Smith required the virtual nature of the Matrix to do it. However they differ in motives; Baby believes he's restoring the Tuffles and getting revenge on the Saiyans, while Smith is a Straw Nihilist wanting to tear the Matrix and the Real World apart out of resentment for everyone and everything. Smith isn't sure what might happen if someone he possesses in the Matrix is infected by Baby in the real world and how the two may mix, but he has his own goals. He was quick to point out despite claiming he's doing the right thing, Baby doesn't really show it and has failed to truly resurrect the Tuffles. This actually led Baby to realize he needed some better methods if he's truly to revive the Tuffles. His new goal is to try and infect the Life Entity and turn it into his host; if he succeeds he can not only truly revive the Tuffle race but potentially infect the entire DC universe.
    • Dr Myuu muses on what might happen if Baby managed to infect certain characters. The Z Fighters hope that this never happens. Baby is hesitant for most because it might backfire. In hindsight Baby wishes he took more advantage of the time he spent infecting the Android twins as they have unlimited stamina.
  • Applies to Dr Myuu
    • Dr Myuu isn't passionate about revenge against the Saiyans like Baby, though he certainly doesn't like them. He simply wants to take over the universe through machine mutants like himself. As such, he feels right at home with the GUAM, though as he's not that ideological it's more a matter of convenience due to his skill at creating machines. He was fascinated at Sigma's skill in recruiting and converting machines to his cause, along with his virus-based nature spreading his will. The Maverick eventually decided to recruit him as one of the GUAM's mechanics; a decision most think was done to distract him from getting too many ideas on who should run the GUAM.
    • Sigma's concern about Dr Myuu's scheming is well-founded; after he broke out of Hell with Dr Gero and worked to turn Android 17 into Super Android 17, he broke their alliance and got 17 to kill Dr Gero again so he would have sole control of the project. 17 soon gave him the same treatment; the "reunion" with Android 20 wasn't pleasant. Having somewhat learned his lesson Dr Myuu has tried to conceal any ambitions about trying to take over the GUAM, and to some extent has accepted that's beyond his capabilities. However he still wants to rise top and has been aiding arch-traitor Starscream in his schemes.
    • The only reasons why he didn't break out of Hell again are because Piccolo is there to actually keep some order there, and he needed to work with Dr Gero to do so the first time. One of the reasons why Baby tolerates him is that when Dr Gero got his revenge and offed him in the pantheon, he ended up in the South Park Hell, where he exploited that Satan's ineffective-ness and took over Hell, pressuring them tokick him out. He then informed Baby that he's here to stay and he better not kill him again or he's going to bring some friends. In Satan's defense he was absent at the time, having died and gone to Heaven.
    • Would absolutely love to take the Star Dream for himself to empower his creations and allow his Machine Mutants to dominate the cosmos. Dr Myuu also wants to take control of D-Reaper for its mass-assmilative and consumptive capacities. Most think this is wishful thinking at best, and in the case of the D-Reaper even Dr Myuu admits it probably is. Its omnicidal desire to eliminate all chaos, aka life is an upset for the doctor as he thinks its power should be used to make people obey, not wipe them out.

  • Greater Gods
  • Symbol:
    • Cassiopeia: Her mask as the White Witch, or her flowers.
    • Shadar: His hood silhouetting his face
  • Theme Music:
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil for both; Lucien was originally Neutral Good before becoming Shadar and has most likely become True Neutral with good tendencies; Cassiopeia was Neutral Good before becoming the White Witch and has since returned to this alignment
  • Profile: Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds, Good people that fell into evil as a result of a horrible tragedy, Really 700 Years Old, Heel–Face Turn
  • Domains: Magic, Tragic Villains, Despair
  • Herald:
    • Cassiopeia: The Kingdom of Nazcaa (excluding the original Council of Twelve (except for Horus))
  • Allies: Obito Uchiha, Nagato, Anakin Skywalker, Ben Solo, Golbez, Kuja, Megamind, Zeref, Nine the Phantom, Ash Ketchum, Harry Potter, Luke Skywalker, Steven Universe, Naruto Uzumaki, Rey, Akko Kagari, Diana Cavendish, Shiny Chariot, Lana, Count Bleck And Tippi
  • Enemies: Lord Voldemort, Belatrix Lestrange, Peter Petigrew, Fenrir Greyback, Dementors, Slytherin's Monster, Sauron, The Witch-king of Angmar, Melkor, Sheev Palpatine, The Wicked Witch of the West, Jadis the White Witch, Prime Minister Honest, Mina Loveberry, Madara Uchiha, Horde Prime
  • Additional Relationships: Oliver
  • Sympathetic to: Odio, Cia
  • Complicated Relationship: Star Butterfly
  • Cassiopeia is the daughter of the Wizard King, succeeding her father as ruler of Nazcaa at a very young age when he passed away. Due to becoming queen at a very young age, she was kept sheltered as the corrupt council ran her kingdom to ground, all the while putting all the blame on her. Growing older and seeing the state of her kingdom, Cassiopeia tried to save her Kingdom with the spell of manna, only for the spell to turn everyone into monsters that killed each other, destroying everything and leaving her alone for 10,000 years. Slowly going insane from the loneliness and guilt of destroying her kingdom, Cassiopeia finally snapped when she manifested Pea, the embodiment of her childhood innocence. Lashing out and banishing Pea, and with her the last vestiges of her humanity, Cassiopeia became the White Witch, recreating the council and her pet bird Apus as figments of her imagination made real, vowing to destroy and recreate the world until it becomes flawless in her image.
    • Shadar was originally Lucien, a young and idealistic mage who wanted to bring peace and trained in the art of magic so he can protect the people of Belicosia. However, his kingdom showed its true colors when Lucien's superiors ordered an invasion of Rubicon, with the soldiers ordered to slaughter everyone in their path to kill a sage. Refusing to take part in the massacre, Lucien instead saved a young girl, only to be punished by his superiors by being Forced to Watch his village be burned to the ground. Filled with despair and grief, Lucien would meet the White Witch, who granted him power in exchange for becoming her executor, allowing him to destroy his former kingdom and vow to create a world without war through tyranny.
    • When Oliver eventually reached the other world, both the White Witch and Shadar attempted to destroy him to prevent him from intervening with their goals, with Shadar even revealing that Alicia is Oliver's mother and there was never a chance to save her. Despite this, Oliver is able to persevere and stop them with the aid of his friends, Pea, and the soul of the Wizard King. Shadar meets his end at the hands of Oliver, with the former impressed by his resolve as he decides to sever the link between their souls so Oliver would continue living, while also meeting the soul of Alicia and learning that she was the young girl he saved all those years ago, allowing him to pass on peacefully to the afterlife. Cassiopeia meanwhile is eventually restored to her original kind-hearted self as she helps Oliver's party defeat the last remnants of the Zodiarchs, the corrupt council she recreated from her memories, before vowing to atone for her sins, starting by planting flowers.
  • The Court of the Gods were interested in the duo's tale, especially since they somehow knew ahead of time they were working together while their enemies didn't know of the White Witch's existence and believed Shadar was the sole threat. Sending a messenger to Cassiopeia and informing her of the Pantheon, Cassiopeia agreed to come and represent a trope so long as she could plant flowers as her way of atonement. Upon arrival, Cassiopeia was shocked to find Lucien as well, who found his way to the Pantheon sometime after death. The Court of the Gods made them the representations of In-Universe Revelations since those who have heard of Oliver's tale knew of the White Witch's existence long before Oliver ever found out. The duo accepted and while making themselves at home, took the time to speak to each other, not as master and servant, but as friends.
    • While it's not clear if Shadar knew about Apus and the Zordiarch's true nature as figments of Cassiopeia's imagination, he admits that he did suspect there was more to Gallus than meets the eye. Lucien found it rather ironic how the both of them received help from someone who cared for them from beyond the grave (Alicia and the Wizard King), both of whom aided Oliver in stopping their evil plan and helping them become the kind people they once were. Even Cassiopeia found the irony amusing, but at the same time admits she's happy her father was still watching over her and wishes she would have been able to speak to him again.
  • Oliver is surprised to see the two in the Pantheon, but is nevertheless pleased to see them now, knowing of their tragedies and how they've become better people. The feeling is mutual on their end, with the two owing their change to him. Oliver has improved his magic in the Pantheon, impressing Cassiopeia and Lucien as they see his prowess as a wizard grow. Oliver has also asked Lucien if his mother managed to join him in the Pantheon, only for Lucien to sadly explain no, she was not able to follow him, much to the boy's disappointment. That being said, Lucien did tell Oliver his mother had said hello and that she's proud of him, something that makes Oliver happy very much, giving him hope that one day he'll see her again.
  • The duo would cross paths with other villains who fell into despair and became evil because of it, just like they did. Obito Uchiha, Nagato, Anakin Skywalker, and Ben Solo all fell into darkness due to tragic circumstances and wanted to enforce peace through their own methodsnote . All of them have since reformed and are working to atone for their sins, so Cassiopeia and Lucien became quick friends with them as they also seek atonement for their sins.
    • They would also cross paths with other villains who seek atonement for the sins they committed without the good intentions, namely Kuja and Golbez. In this case, both suffered from brainwashing from a truly vile villain (Kefka and Zemus respectively), reminding Cassiopeia of when she was manipulated by the Council of Twelve. Cassiopeia and Lucien would also become friends with the two, promising to help them with their atonement, with Kuja and Golbez accepting.
    • Megamind was a supervillain only because he grew up with people expecting him to, but once he finds love, he is able to redeem himself and become the new superhero of Metro City when Metro Man "retired". Megamind admits he's actually happier this way because he now has a real purpose, and he hopes to help Cassiopeia and Lucien find theirs during their atonement.
  • Understandably, the pair aren't fond of Dark Lords and Wizards, especially the likes of Lord Voldemort, Melkor, Palpatine, and Sauron. These evil beings were interested in the pair's powerful Dark Magic (The Ashes of Manna and the Power to Take Hearts), both wanting to weaponize these spells for their own uses. Neither Cassiopeia nor Lucien are willing to let them take their magic and use it for evil ever again, and show just powerful they've become with their new allies at their side.
  • Prime Minister Honest is easily the god the duo dislike the most, and for good reason. His manipulation and corruption of the young Emperor reminds Cassiopeia of how she was used by the Council, and his corrupt rule of the empire reminds Lucien of Belicosia's Warmongering tendencies and willingness to slaughter innocent civilians. Both are willing to kill Honest for his corruption, with Honest actually fearing their magic after seeing what they're capable of.
    • Lucien looks down of Esdeath's warmongering and Blood Knight tendencies. To him, Esdeath is a living reminder of the bloodshed he was forced to witness, leading to his Start of Darkness. Esdeath in turn doesn't really care about Lucien's views, still believing in survival of the fittest, but is eager to battle him and see his power close up. Lucien has absolutely nothing but contempt for her to the point that he quickly just goes for a swift and anticlimactic kill, unwilling to humor her. All this does is make Esdeath more eager to fight him.
  • The duo are conflicted about Star, since even though they understand why she did it, Star destroying all magic puts a bad taste in their mouth because it reminds them of the destruction of their homelands, not to mention how Cassiopeia had tried to destroy and remake her world so many times. That said, they're aren't exactly thrilled with Mina, who is actively seeking genocide and refuses to stop no matter what.
  • Cassiopeia and Lucien were very sympathetic with the likes of Zeref and Nine the Phantom, seeing how the two were driven to villainy by love just like Anakin and Obito were. Zeref and Nine in turn were also sympathetic towards the two for suffering from the tragedy that made them evil in the first place. They spent time discussing their magic and how they can use it improve other's lives.
    • Count Bleck and Tippi would also become friends with the duo after they learned of each other's tragic circumstances. Cassiopeia's former desire to destroy and remake the world reminds Count Bleck of Dimentio's Evil Plan, though unlike the latter, Cassiopeia was still capable of love and kindness, whereas Dimentio was a sociopath who only wanted to make a perfect world for himself. Cassiopeia and Lucien noted how they're tragic love for each other reminds them of Prince Ali and Princess Yasmina, who were also Star-Crossed Lovers separated as a result of an enemy's actions (Aapep in their case, and Blumiere's father in the case of Count Bleck and Tippi).
  • Odio has earned the pair's sympathy, considering how his life was ruined because one of his friends was jealous of his reputation and turned everyone against him so he can be the hero instead. Odio still has remained cynical, but admits that he does envy Cassiopeia managing to find someone to restore her faith. Odio also admits that he envies Lucien for having someone accompany him to the afterlife, whereas he died alone.
  • Though Madara did suffer through a lifetime of misery, most of it was self-inflicted, and he did cause Obito's Start of Darkness intentionally, giving Cassiopeia bad memories. Despite no longer causing trouble as he once did, neither Cassiopeia nor Lucien are as willing to reach out to him, considering he's still a Blood Knight (something that Shadar looks down on) and unsociable person.
  • Ash once dealt with living illusions once when his mother was kidnapped by an illusory Entei and he has to save her and Molly from the Unown when their power to grant Molly's wishes was threatening the outside world. Ash sympathizes with Cassiopeia greatly, remembering when Molly depended on illusions when her family disappeared, but is glad that she was finally able to let go of the past and start living in the present.
  • Cassiopeia quickly befriended Lana, who is the expelled goodness of another magic user from another world, similar to Pea. Cassiopeia felt sympathy for Cia since she also forced out her goodness, though she found her obsession with Link a little extreme. Lana in turn feels sympathy for the queen after learning how she expelled her kindness and innocence due to going insane from eons of loneliness after making a horrifying mistake, though she is at least glad that Cassiopeia reunited with Pea and became the kind-hearted queen she once was. Cassiopeia hopes that Cia and Lana can make up their differences one day and reunite.
  • Harry Potter, a good friend to Oliver, saw the two as the Good Counterpart to Lord Voldemort since they both have powerful magic and were immortal in a sense. However, Voldemort remained unrepentant to the very end, condemning his mutilated and fractured soul to limbo for eternity, whereas Cassiopeia and Lucien were able to find redemption in the end (Lucien gets to pass on to the afterlife peacefully, while Cassiopeia manages to live and regain her lost heart). Harry is proud that Oliver managed to succeed where he failed and is respectful to the two.
  • Akko is very sympathetic to the two after learning of their backstory, and is happy that Oliver was able to save them from their own torment. Akko has already forgiven Shiny Chariot for stealing her magic and is willing to give her the chance to atone. Since Akko and Chariot both want to bring smiles to people, they fully support Cassiopeia's desire to spread flowers and agree to help with this goal.
  • Luke, Rey, and Naruto had helped to redeem Anakin, Ben, Nagato, and Obito, and being the kind of heroes they are, were also able to extend a hand of friendship with Cassiopeia and Lucien. Lucien notes that Luke had lost himself when he failed Ben as a master, yet Rey helped to put him back on the right path, allowing him to return the favor later for her. Lucien sees a lot of himself in Luke after they both lost hope, though he still has yet to fully make peace with himself. Luke assures him that as long as there are people willing to give him a chance, and he continues making the effort to make things better, he will eventually.
  • Horde Prime detests the duo because magic is his Achilles' Heel, and their magic is incredibly powerful. Cassiopeia and Lucien in turn detest him for his tyranny and desire to conquer. Lucien dislikes him because his Mind Rape and desire to control remind him of the methods he used as Shadar to enforce order and prevent uprisings. That said, Prime does find Lucien's spells to turn people into the brokenhearted very interesting, and wants to take control of Lucien to put that spell to good use.
  • Jadis can be considered the Evil Counterpart of Cassiopeia for many reasons, besides the fact they share the title of the White Witch. They are both royalty, but whereas Cassiopeia started out as ruler who wanted the best for her people and was being misled by a corrupt council, Jadis fought a long and bloody war with her for claim of the throne. Cassiopeia destroyed her Kingdom entirely on accident, trying to make things better after her Kingdom was run to ground under the council's rule, while Jadis destroyed her entire universe during her battle with her sister. Cassiopeia became evil due to despair, but eventually saw the light again thanks to Oliver, while Jadis only got worse and tried to take over another world. Neither side like the other, though Jadis covets Cassiopeia's power and wants to take control of her world. Cassiopeia in turn vows to stop her if she ever tries to make a move on her.
  • Mischievous magic users were quite interested in Shadar's ability to take people's hearts, drastically changing their personality, and after learning an excess in any virtue that makes a person's heart can also lead to a personality change. After they manage to steal Oliver's spellbook, they used the Take and Give Heart spells to transfer different virtues between characters just to see what would happennote . Oliver and Lucien had to work together to fix the damage done, enlisting the aid of other sorcerers help them locate all those affected.

  • Not So Different from: Dio Brando
  • Supposedly, Rolo Lamperouge is Lelouch's younger brother. He is unsociable and reserved, unlike his older brother, a trait which does not gain him many friends at school. His most prized possession is a locket given to him by Lelouch on his birthday. However, this is all a lie. Charles used his Geass of Fake Memories to make him think he was always part of the family as part of removing Nunnally from his memories. Rolo was a child assassin who proved a Poisonous Friend out of an obsession with his "brother" despite his purpose of keeping an eye on him and killing him if needed, and is only kept by Lelouch as a pawn.
  • His codename is Rolo Haliburton. His real name is unknown, and he's not telling anyone what it is. The homunculus Pride was intrigued by this seemingly innocent kid being an Ax-Crazy assassin, as it reminds him of his own role as the Bradley's little kid. Beyond that he's indifferent and can't see how Rolo would serve his Father's plans.
  • Lelouch wasn't happy to learn that Rolo had returned in his life, however Rolo did end up killing himself by overuse of his Geass to save him. Despite trying to remove Nunnally, he has promised not to go after her in the pantheon in order to try and get into his "brother's" good graces again. This doesn't change the fact he is still unstable. Naminé wasn't happy seeing him ascend, as her memory manipulation powers were used to replace Kairi with herself in Sora's memories, but she was forced to do so by Organization XIII and worked to fix Sora's memories. Rolo gives her bad memories.
  • Lelouch isn't the only god who had to deal with a Backstory Invader. Rick and Morty had to deal with memory parasites, only detecting them because they couldn't create bad memories. Jack's love interest with mind raped into thinking he was a serial killer by one. As such, they both would rather Rolo buzz off but don't have reason to truly hate them. Riza doesn't like Rolo much even if she doesn't hate him because his toxic influence is antithetical to her role as a Morality Chain to Roy Mustang.
  • Interestingly Nappa seems fond of the kid. After all, he was Vegeta's sidekick who ultimately crossed him, though more directly in his case and it was an example of You Have Failed Me. It was Rolo who was more sympathetic to Nappa because his failings were merely getting crippled after a Curb-Stomp Battle. However upon Nappa's ascension Vegeta is a bit more accepting and Nappa has become more chill. Oddly enough while there's a timeline where Nappa underwent Adaptational Heroism, the Nightmare of Nunnally timeline is one where Rolo underwent Adaptational Villainy. Sometimes they chat about it.
  • With other Dragonball deities, Rolo is on relative good terms with Android 17 and 18. Sure, they were never as evil as Rolo(at least in the present timeline), but like him they were turned into tyke bombs. Hit seems to feel bad for the kid given his status as a Tyke Bomb assassin, as despite his stoic personality he is a Hitman with a Heart. He also has a time-stop based ability, though more direct than the mental time stop of Rolo. Cassandra Cain and Damian Wayne seem to sympathize with this background even if they rose above it more than Rolo. In turn, Rolo pities Sniper Wolf for her doomed love for her own target.
  • Rolo Haliburton's Geass is a time stop. It doesn't freeze time so much as it mentally freezes people; the Ward of Absolute Suspension. The weaknesss is that it stops his heart so he can only do it for short bursts, but it is very useful for assassination. Dio was amused by this, and while he is way too evil for Rolo to accept working with, they weren't completely dissimilar. Rolo's obsession with his "brother" reminds Dio of his own obsession with Jonathan despite being arch enemies, twisting into a paradoxical loathing of having to desecrate Jonathan's body through Brain Theft while also believing it is the only vessel worthy of him. They're also rather psychotic and have serious issues stemming from childhood. It's been argued that Dio doesn't have an excuse and was simply an Enfant Terrible, but oddly enough Rolo does believe he is a product of his upbringing; it's just he chose not to rise above it, which Rolo is starting to do following a case of Redemption Equals Death.
  • The toxic obsession with Lelouch has Rolo confused on historical betrayals by friends like Akechi Mitsuhide and Marcus Junius Brutus. Akechi's morality and how he views Oda Nobunaga is complicated by varying depictions, and though Rolo is quick to condemn treachery Akechi pointing out he wasn't exactly helping Lelouch and thus can't have much of a place to talk caused him to reconsider him and Brutus. Some may say Brutus had an Oedipus Complex, not helped by the rumors Julius Caesar had fathered him, and is usually only able to get along with Rolo on the "hero" side where he only killed his friend as a necessary evil.
  • While he is conflicted with the above, Rolo has nothing but seething contempt for Mannfred von Carstein and Peter Pettigrew. Sure, Rolo goes against Lelouch's best interests, but it's only partly selfishness and a lot motivated by his Mad Love. Both of them are pure It's All About Me. Pettigrew is in some ways worse; he had a good relationship with the Marauders even if they would sometimes neglect him, but he still betrayed them just because he was afraid of dying while Rolo eventually pulled a Heroic Sacrifice in part to redeem himself. Despite that, Wormtail doesn't actually dislike Rolo and some small part of him wishes he shared Rolo's bravery in the end given what treachery ultimately gave him. A lot of this relates to the likely reason why he of all people was sorted into Gryffindor; not his own bravery, but that he values bravery.
  • As mentioned, he was raised as a child assassin and it messed him up big time. N doesn't approve of his actions however he understands what it must have been like have been made a pawn. Also, while Jack the Ripper usually doesn't care about Rolo and the feeling is mutual, as a Servant she seems to get along with Rolo for the most part. Mainly because they are traumatized youths and this led them to murder, though Rolo considers her "kill prostitutes for their maternal warmth" weird even for him.
  • Naturally despises Sundowner, as he is willing to make Child Soldiers and raise them to be psychos like himself for war. Not just mentally, but taking their brains and turning them into cyborgs run on simulations. Naturally despises Rorge too. While there are many reasons to hate the Brave Companions, especially Rorge, his beef comes with how Rorge raised an orphan to be nothing more than an attack animal. Rolo sees Biter as himself with all humanity driven out of him, and though Biter is too animalistic to reciprocate Rolo is a lot more sympathetic to Biter than most.
  • Tends to hang out in the House of Killers and Assassins. Despite the deadly profession, there are a number of more well-adjusted deities there. But then there's also Misa Amane. Given how Light feels about murderers when they working for his cause or are him, most thought they'd be straight up enemies. However they found common ground in an obsession with a figure that regards them with apathy and/or antipathy(though Lelouch is more justified to do so than Light). Sure she would kill Rolo in a heart beat if Light requested it, but she pities the kid and sympathizes with his desire to be loved.
  • Finds kinship with Lieselotte Achenbach given their similar backgrounds and anti-hero traits. Less so with River Song, as she doesn't care for anything related to Fake Memories given her background with the Silents' Kovarian faction. However they were both raised to be assassins and have serious issues. River's just comparatively more matured than Rolo and wants him to follow up being a better ally to Lelouch and a better person as a whole, as the Doctor helped her.
  • If it hasn't been made clear by now, Rolo is a Yandere for Lelouch. Probably platonically, but still. So naturally he gets along with Yuno Gasai. He also seems to understand how Belarus must feel with her obsession for Russia, though he is weirded out by her wanting her biological father. When she pointed out that's kind of hypocritical given Lelouch is technically his foster father, Rolo pointed out "yes, foster brother".
  • Weirdly enough, Rolo Haliburton and Scrappy-Doo are friends. At first they thought they didn't have any common ground, but after a fist fight came to the realization they do; estranged family, kind of annoying and are scrappy. Both in terms of personality, but also most don't like Scrappy-Doo and Rolo has a divisive reputation among the fans. The two came to understand each other and this further annoyed Lelouch when Rolo brought the pup.
  • Found a common bond with Shukuro Tsukishima once the former Xcution member was clear of the influence of Death Phantom. Both have invaded others' histories via false memory gambits, though Rolo's wasn't his own; as such, he's a bit miffed that Shukuro can insert himself into people's pasts but not anyone else normally. Likewise, Shu thinks his obsession with Lelouch is a bit much to deal with. Still, they both understand what it's like to fight, kill, and die for the cause of their First Friend—and ironically, Rolo has become Shu's first new solid friend in the Pantheon. Rolo is trying to convince Lelouch to help Shu whenever he's ready to take on Death Phantom.

  • Symbol: The Stray Sheep sign
  • Theme Song: Alsp Sprach Brooks, Chopin Revolutionary Etude (as a Nightmare boss)
  • Alignment: True Neutral overall (evil in actions, good in intentions)
  • Portfolio: Cool Shades Even At Night Hiding His Red Glowing Eyes of Doom, Dirty Old Man, Everyone Calls Him "Master" or "Boss", Service Sector Stereotypes, Physical God, Was Once a Man, Weeding Out Cheaters And Commitment-Incapable Men Despite Being A Cheater Himself, One-Winged Angel
  • Domain(s): Bartending, Nightmares, Population Growth
  • Allies: Vincent Brooks (kinda)
  • Consort of: Ishtar
  • Enemies: Akio Ohtori
  • Opposed by: Princess Cadance
  • Opposes: Kyu Sugardust, Ato-ko Shirogane
  • One day, while taking a drink at Moe's Tavern, Vincent mused about the Stray Sheep back home. One thing led to another, and an envoy of the Court decided to visit the bar. They found the barkeep to be a target of interest, and invited him to join the Pantheon. For reasons only he knows, Boss accepted offer.
    • That said, he shortly realized what he was ascended for: Saying Too Much, when he accidentally tipped his hand to Vincent about his schemes when the guy was just asking about Catherine's existence or what he did to Rin. This ended up tipping off Vincent to his plots as well.
    • Additionally, because he cannot be merely called Boss (due to how many others bear the same moniker), his given name Thomas Mutton was rendered public knowledge. Anything else about him is from hearsay, Vincent, or Thomas himself.
  • His temple takes the form of his Stray Sheep bar, and doubles as a pseudo-gateway for Vincent's friends to visit him, as it's "connected" to the one in his home realm.
  • As it turns out, the envoy who invited Thomas to the Pantheon in the first place had ulterior motives for ascending him; to let Princess Cadance "tear him a new one" as she had said she would do when she heard of Vincent's nightmares. And that's exactly what she did, after making sure her husband ensures that no one else would be intervening.
  • Despite what he's done, Thomas is not the mastermind behind the Nightmares; that honor goes to Astaroth. Still, he shares the same motives; maintaining population growth and weeding out cheaters, betrayers, the deceitful, the non-commited, and homosexuals.
    • Speaking of cheaters, he's in direct opposition to those who would not only turn people into Casanovas (such as Kyu) (as well as Casanovas themsleves like Akio Ohtori), but those who would ruin relationships (such as Ato-ko Shirogane). Maintaining population growth goes both ways.
    • As for harems, that's a pretty mixed bag that doesn't like dealing with, even if they have good reasons for forming them such as Shido Itsuka (actually volunteered into doing it by his sister Kotori, but he's continued going with it) or Naze Turbine, or even if it works out perfectly, like with Issei Hyodo or Touya Mochizuki.
    • But for those who try to be Casanovas but are unsuccessful, as long as they either don't succeed, or stick to one person once they found someone who reciprocates their feelings, Thomas finds them beneath his attention.
  • After hearing of what exactly his nightmares are like, a few folks are even asking him to send them those nightmares, too (it helps that Death Is Cheap in the Pantheon). Sometimes, that Rapunzel arcade game he has in the bar doesn't quite cut it.
    • That said, most folks actually have it against him for that given considering how large his criterias for targeting people are and that he's a homophobe on top of being a hypocrite. So he's made very few friends.
  • Was surprised to see Ishtar herself, who he was a consort of, in the Pantheon. And she is not happy to see him.
    • The other Ishtar, better known as Inanna, on the other hand, proved somewhat more appealing given they come from the same multiverse, but her single-minded desire to procreate has made him a mite concerned.
  • Ended up attending a Bartenders Anonymous one day, where he met the other bartenders of the Pantheon; Moe Szyslak (the representative god of the trope/career), Tapper, Sojiro Sakura (though he's more on coffee and curry than liquor), Shizuo Heiwajima, and Jill Stingray. For the most part, he regards them all as simple rivals in the trade. However, Jill dislikes him for his homophobia as she is bisexual and her world is accepting of homosexuality (save for a few older folks).
  • Apparently kind of looks like Stan Lee to some people.

  • Enemies:
  • General Shepherd was once the man that served as the supreme commander of the UMSC during their deployment in the Middle East in their efforts to overthrow Khaled Al-Asad and the Op-For following them overtaking the land and executing president Yasir Al-Fulani. Shepherd suffered a considerable loss after the nuke was detonated, killing around 30.000 U.S. Soldiers in an instant. This greatly affected the general who would later swear he would rebuilt the reputation of the US Army whatever mean necessary and for that he created Task Force 141 to be his guinea pig project and sparking a Third World War between the USA and Russia. With that, he sent a new recruit, Joseph Allen, undercover in Vladimir Makarov's inner circle to aid him in the infamous airport massacre, Makarov knowing full well Allen was just a mole and killed him to spark a war. But the true nature of Shepherd wouldn't be revealed until he sent half of the Task Force 141 to raid Makarov's hideout...
    • Following a narrow escape from Makarov's Estate, Lt. Simon "Ghost" Riley and Sgt. Gary "Roach" Sanderson were to rendezvous with Shepherd and the backup but Roach was injured in the process. The backup arrived on time, but neither man was prepared after Shepherd suddenly shot them both and disposed of their bodies, uttering the rather infamous "Good, that's one less loose end". For that, Shepherd was later ascended into the Pantheon with the Wham Line title.
  • Concerning the public of his world, he died as a war hero but in the Pantheon his dirty laundry was made public the second he was made a deity, shattering any chance he could properly join the Grand United Alliance of Good or even other official military positions and became disgraced in the process, mostly because both MacTavish and Price were already deities on their own right. In the end the general wasn't too bothered by this inconvinience, preferring to acts as a "vigilante" and crush whoever he sees as someone that would threaten the security of the United States and he has plenty fish to fry with not only the aforementioned TF 141 soldiers but with both Makarov AND Zakhaev as threats he wants to personally put down in order to earn the glory of being the man to put a stop to them.
  • While GUAG quickly distanced themselves from Shepherd concerning his betrayal of several of his people and that Shepherd himself found GUAE to be even too much for him, he ended up finding himself allied with the Grand United Alliance of Chaos. The main reason? Senator Steven Armstrong fully backed up Shepherd in his attempt to make America a super power again, even if ultimately the Senator is against war itself but understands that war does have its uses. He then pulled some strings to have Shepherd be a member of GUAC, even if the man himself isn't exactly looking to throw the world into chaos, at the least having someone backing him up might give him the edge in eliminating his opposition.
  • While technically being disohonorable dischardged from being an official member of the Pantheonic military, Shepherd was wise enough to get his PMC, the Shadow Company, enter as his herald division and is now a lot more open about his illegal activities, often bordering on beign a full-blown terrorist to some but he has numerous times clarified he is doing it for the good of America and to avenge all those soldiers he lost in the Middle East. This in turn caught the attention of Big Boss who found Shepherd to be quite similar to him even if he is a lot more reckless and cares little for his own men, Big Boss decided to ally with him mostly to keep an eye on him and the Shadow Company and probably wouldn't have him be part of his group.
  • He knows there are others from his home franchise that hail from slightly different timelines. He caught wind of Alex Mason, who became a sleeper agent for the Russians and was implicated in the assassination of JFK and neither are exactly on good terms with one another, Mason finding Shepherd to be deplorable and a disgrace to the US Military while the General find Mason's friendship with Viktor Reznov and Tashkent to be foolish but both recognize that Dragovich is as dangerous as Makarov and doesn't help the two are friends. Likewise, he will aid the GUAG if it can hinder Raul Menedez, who besides having a grudge against Mason he also has paid a visit to Shepherd and warned him that he too would fall against Cordis Die.
  • It's no surprise that Shepherd is considered a Black Sheep among the deities who have ties to the military, orchestrating World War III and disposing of his own Task Force like it was nothing is unforgivable in many eyes, with both Jax Briggs and Sonya Blade (a general herself) finding the man to be the worst of the worst (which only got worse once word came that Shepherd was making a deal with Kano for an undisclossed reason), their respective daughters also having come to despise Shepherd for similar reasons. Commander Shepard is also disgusted that so many people keep confusing the two and stated they would never fall into the same pit that the General did and betray his own soldiers.
    • His ties to Big Boss and his subsequent alliance with Solidus Snake (who similarly can appreciate what he tried to accomplish) made it so several of the former two's enemies would also considering targetting Shepherd, with Solid Snake, Meryl Silverburgh and Johnny Sasaki having taken action in their attempts to bringing the General down.
  • His betrayal of his men and the use of Shadow Company granted him the disgust of Alexander the Great, Leonidas and many others within the House of War. Likewise, Martin Walker despise him for being too much like his former superior, Konrad but Shepherd was quick to point out that wasn't much better than him, citing the White Phosporus incident as a much worse action that what Shepherd did (though it's hotly debated wether causing a war between America and Russia or bombing innocent civilians is worse).
  • Shepherd also faced a lot of backlash given his roll in the war between Russia and America, the hunt for Makarov and getting the Task Force 141 disavowed. Several who think War Is Hell like Kiritsugu Emiya, siblings Seita and Setsuko and Obi-Wan Kenobi find his actions to be irredeemable in their eyes. He hardly cares for these but his betrayal also VERY infamous among people both in and outside the Pantheon, mourning the loss of Ghost and Roach to this day, which only certain member of the House of Betrayal have ever complimented Shepherd on it.
  • Nowadays Shepherd is mostly the leader of a PMC (the aformentioned Shadow Company) even if he would rather not acknowledge this. He isn't exactly beloved by other mercenaries or even groups for that matter, with the Tactical Dolls being one of his most constant detractors in the PMC department, mostly because they were betrayed by a renegade branch not unlike what Shepherd did to TF 141. He finds the girls to be rather amusing rather than a serious threat but recognizes they are a potential threat to the Shadow Company.
  • Joshua Graham found Shepherd to be a dark reflection what he used to be in the past, and is understanding of why would Shepherd would go to become like that following a nuclear explosion, he knows from experience after all. However, he nonetheless managed to become a better person and has tried to urge the general to do the same but Shepherd has chosen to ignore Graham and brush him off as a lunatic.
  • His connections in the pantheonic criminal underworld have been shaky to say the least, mostly given a deal gone wrong he once had with Yuri Orlov. The man being ukranian was already a red flag for him but he could provide his group with firearms but Orlov set Shepherd up and lured him and his men into a trap set up by Makarov but luckily Shepherd was able to overcome them and has since tried to hunt down Orlov for this. But not everything has been problems, Miles Quaritch was a disgraced military man just like him and saw a kindred spirit in Shepherd, offering the man a partnership that Shepherd accepted after hearing that Quaritch had access to futuristic technology and some rare resources from an alien planet.

  • It's safe to say that he was given a restraining order by Aang and his friend because of his horrendous portrayal of them. They watched it themselves and hated it. At least Sokka admits that the effects were decent.
  • He strongly dislike the Nostalgia Critic for his opinion of several of his films. He first appeared in his show dressed as Amon and with the power to "shyamalize" people, where he sucks out all the talent of any one he touch like Mark Wahlberg. Though, after watching the hilarity fest that was Lady in the Water, the Critic allowed him to speak his mind of his vision for the film.
    • He died twice in the show, the first time was killed by Aang and the second time was Satan who was incognito to reveal Shyamalan when he was disguised as Santa Christ so that he may return him back to hell. Though he escaped again from hell and disguise himself as Will Smith though the Critic already figured out the twist before it was revealed. How he managed to escape again, it's Shyamalan - nothing about him makes sense.
    • Amon himself is rather amused by this man, though he recalled that Shyamalan stole his clothes in order to make his presence to the Critic.
  • Despite the many criticism he received, some believed that he got better with Wayward Pines.
  • According to him and this movie, plants could release chemicals that cause humans into mass suicides. The House of Plants were rather insulted by such film with even idea that plants could even do that. Even the evil plant deities think that he was stretching it as even mind-manipulating plants are ridiculous.
    • Though Shyamalan believed that evil plants like Exdeath and Mordemoth were responsible for the suicidal gases they produced.
    • The Critic joked that he's labeling racial profiling with other plant people like Groot and Pocahontas' grandmother, Grandmother Willow.
  • After watching some of his films, Hitchcock was a bit disappointed with some of his thrillers not giving him the right amount of suspense. In fact, he and few other audience find it ridiculous at certain points.
    • The name of the creatures in Lady in the Water: Narfs, Scrunts, Tartutic in which the Critic couldn't hold his breath for a second, it was that ridiculous. The former is especially ridiculed since that's the sound that Pinky would make.
  • As he thought of water weakness for the aliens in Signs, despite the Fridge Logic, which caused the Wicked Witch to hold a grudge against him since she has the same weakness. Shyamalan was Crazy-Prepared with her with glasses of water and a bat ready to "swing away!"
    • In fact, if any aliens were to see how the Aliens from Signs, they would be facepalming when they realize that they were invading a planet FULL of water and their inability to open wooden doors.
  • He's a good friend of Samuel L. Jackson since he got him to appear in one of his movies as a man with easily-brittle skeleton.
  • He got along with George Lucas when they were almost alike. Movie directors who made some good films but were lauded for making some less than stellar films
  • Many Satan(s) in the Pantheon were headscratching when Shyamalan's method of detecting the Devil is throwing a toast to see if it lands jelly side down. Apparently, he got kicked out of the House of Food once when he's been tossing all the jelly-coated toast all day.
  • Whenever some twist of fate happen in the Pantheon, Shyamalan randomly shouting "WHAT A TWEEST!" and disappears.
  • Has been through a Career Resurrection of sorts ever since The Visit. Split in particular brought Shyamalan to Professor Xavier's attention, given it stars one of his avatars.

    Margaret/The Magic Gun 
Margaret, Goddess of Dark Retcons (The Magic Gun)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/magic_gun_6.jpg
The Magic Gun held by Linkara
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/margaret1.png
Margaret
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her current form, the Magic Gun
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Dark And Surprising Walking Spoiler (used to parody A Wizard Did It), Human Sacrifice By Her Own Parents Who Destroyed Them With Her Newfound Power, Spirit Advisor, Powered By A Girl's Soul, Not-So-Imaginary Friend
  • Domains: Magic, Guns, Sacrifice, Dark Rituals, Compassion
  • Allies: Linkara, The Heroic Protectors of Family, Leah, N, Satsuki Kiryuin, Sweet P, the Silent Hill protagonists, The Elric brothers, Casper, Seras Victoria
  • On speaking terms with: The Marionette, Altera
  • Enemies: Missingno/The Entity , Lord Vyce, The Child Abuse Supporters, Ragyo Kiryuin, Adrian, Diablo, Ghetsis Harmonia, Shou Tucker, Lord Tirek, The Incubators
  • Sympathy for the Devil for: Alma Wade
  • Wary of: The House of Otherness Abominations, The SCP Foundation
  • One of Linkara's most valued commodities is the Magic Gun. When asked how it works, he says "it's magic, I don't have to explain it" as a slight against Joe Quesada handwaving issues. In truth, it(or rather, she) was a child of cultists of the Entity, who tortured and killed her to forge her into a weapon. She used this newfound power to get back at her tormentors. Her name is Margaret.
  • Popped up missing from Linkara, in the House of Weapons. There she met Seras Victoria, who had her own tragic background(though involving her parents' suffering rather than them causing it) and love of guns, and who figured there was some intelligence within the gun. Margret found herself relating to Altera, being a Living Weapon.
  • Can manifest as a ghost, however only Linkara can see her. Despite the bloody ritual that made her the Magic Gun she has an optimistic outlook. The hate and pain of the experience manifested as Dolorem, who Mechkara used to gaslight Linkara into thinking he was the monster of her father, almost killing himself over it. Very much unlike Alma Wade, who remains consumed in her rage. She doesn't agree with her, but she can easily sympathize.
  • She is friendly with Casper as they are essentially ghosts of kids, but nice ones. She also likes to play with Sweet P. Sweet P is the reborn version of an entity arguably worse than the Entity, but wants to be a good boy. The Marionette, being a murdered child reborn, also relates to her. While Margaret appreciates this, she feels her methods are too much.
  • Her origin was something out of Silent Hill, with the cult leader Whately being involved. The protagonists of the Silent Hill series pity her condition. The SCP Foundation was more cold, as they initially wanted her to be contained as an SCP, however decided that it's best with Linkara. She doesn't like them, though. She also doesn't like the Abominations sub-house, mainly because of what the Entity is like and while they may not be interested in her, she fears their cultists are.
  • Because of how she became the Magic Gun, Margaret has nothing but contempt for the Child Abuse Supporters and those who would weaponize their offspring. She was horrified to learn of Shou Tucker due to how he turned his daughter into a chimeric abomination for a research grant. Linkara is all too happy to honor her wishes to blast him. The Elric brothers are working to make her current existence more comfortable.
  • Ghetsis is also on her hit list as much like how she was born only for her parents to later sacrifice, Ghetsis only adopted N to later use for his ambitions of power and planned to dispose of later. Or Ragyo Kiryuin for her atrocious treatment of her daughter/s. But Adrian is particularly high on her hit list since she raised her daughter as a host for ultimate evil, which hits home.
  • To prevent further abuse, she has sided with the Heroic Protectors of Family. Because of the situation with her own monstrous parents, she can easily relate to Leah, N and Satsuki Kiryuin. Margaret can be found in the House of Magic studying, and conversing on the different fields of magic. Naturally, she stays away from Lord Tirek. It's been discovered that she's holding back a lot of power, but mainly to make sure Linkara remains on the good side and stopped working at the time where he was about to turn evil. Now that he's more heroic, she can be expected to do more.

    Renée Montoya/The Question II 
Renée Maria Montoya, Goddess of Coming Out Stories (The Question II)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/latest_1_3.jpg
Renée as The Question
Renée, seen in Batman: Bad Blood 
  • Theme Song: Sinnerman by Nina Simone
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbols: Her GCPD Badge, The Question's Mask and Fedora and Her Gun
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolios: Action Girl, The (Recovering) Alcoholic, Was a By-the-Book Cop, Disowned By Her Parents For Being A Lesbian, Both The Good And Bad Cop, Dominican And A Lesbian, Good Old Fisticuffs, Trained In Eight Fighting Styles, Police Brutality, Platonic Life-Partners With Harvey Bullock, She Who Fights Monsters
  • Domains: Dominican/Latin Women, Lesbians, Police Officers, Homosexuality, Disowned Children
  • Former Mentor: Charles Victor Szasz/The Question I (of which Renée once served as High Priestess)
  • Herald: Kate Kane/Batwoman (her lover)
  • Commonality Connection: Dinah Lance/Black Canary, Gamora, Wonder Woman, Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sarah Kerrigan, Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy and Mary Jane Watson (due to one contributing factor)
  • Allies:
  • Friendly Rivalry: with Blaze Fielding (a fellow police officer and judoka), and Jessica Jones, Daniel Rand/Iron Fist
  • Enemies:
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: with Sandra Wusan/Lady Shiva
  • Odd Frienship: with Tony Stark/Iron Man
  • Renée M. Montoya was originally the herald to her predecessor, the original Question. Her ascension to the Pantheon was a surprise devised by her mentor. But what sealed it was Batman's recommendation alongside with that from the Birds of Prey. So now, Renée has made the jump from High Priestess to Goddess, working with the Grand United Alliance Of Good as a freelance detective.
  • Before becoming The Question, Renée was a detective with the Gotham City Police Department, having been partnered up with Harvey Bullock. Due to a series of events thanks in part to Two-Face's obsession with her at the time which resulted in him outing her as a lesbian, Renée's deeply religious parents ended up disowning her. But one must take the bitter with the sweet, as she found support with her fellow police officers after the incident with Two-Face.
    • She then drew the attention of Charles Szasz, who began to mentor and train her to become his successor, as he was terminally ill. Following his mortal demise, Renée became the second person to assume the mantle of the Question.
    • Like Batman, Renée has a subscription to her mentor's newsletter (which had been a must given her former position as his Herald). Unlike Bats, who subscribes to the newsletter because it was a good source of information, Renée likes it because it's a good read...even if some of her mentor's claims are...well, insane. There's also a rumor that GLaDOS is a subscriber to the newsletter, as one of her random rantings is supported by Vic Sage: Edmund Hillary, the first person to climb Mount Everest, did so accidentally while chasing a bird.
  • Known to get rough with the perps back during her time with the GCPD. No wonder she gets along with Kurtis Stryker, who is known for the same thing, not the mention being the God of it. Occasionally, they team up to solve some of the Pantheon's most difficult cases, Stryker thankful that Renée isn't put off on him using a glamour to hide his Revenant appearance. It's through her friendship with Stryker that Renée is friends with some of the more prominent deities that were once - or currently - cops/detectives.
  • Hangs out at the House of Combat with Black Canary. Turns out that Renee is not only a crack shot with a pistol, but is skilled in several styles having been trained by both Charles Szasz and Richard Dragon, her styles include Boxing, Akido, Karate, three styles of Kung Fu (Dragon, Leopard and Snake), Jujitsu and Judo.
    • This gains the attention of Gen, who offers Renée the chance to add two more styles to her already-impressive skill-set: Mantis and Crane, with Gen being the teacher. Renée is considering the offer. When asked about whether she could control her emotions, Renée's answer surprised the old man: "I learned how to control my nervous system from both Ricard and Vic Sage, which allows me to control my emotions, deaden my body to physical pain, and even control my bleeding rate." Gen was actually impressed.
    • Also met Blaze Fielding, who is an ex-cop alongside Renée and a fellow judoka. Renée had stated that had she not been involved with Kate, then she would've made a move on Blaze. In Renée's defense, Blaze does look hot in leather.
  • Became friends with Kung Jin and Tracer, bonding over their sexual preferences. While Jin's teammates and their respective parents/mentors, Raiden, the Shaolin Temple, and Liu Kang know of Jin's homosexuality, Kung Lao doesn't. After seeing what had happened to Renée when her parents found out, Jin is afraid that Lao will reject him. Both Renée and Tracer are trying to convince Jin to have a sit-down with Lao.
    • Ironically enough, Renée has become the go-to person to talk to about their problems, Renée forming a bond with those who are estranged or disowned by their family, thus becoming a de facto counselor of sorts.
  • Despite her being a hero and her connections to Batman, Renée herself is a target, mainly because of the innocent-looking firearm she carries with her. But instead of spitting out hot lead, Renée's gun causes instant vaporization. No wonder Reaper, Kano, and the Wolfpack want that gun.
  • Not a fan of Superman's Injustice counterpart. And the deposed High Councilor doesn't think too highly if Renée as well. Granted that Injustice!Renée died of a heart attack that was the result of OD'ing on Kryptonian power pills after beating the crap out of him (even smacking him with the Washington Monument one good time), the feeling is reciprocated on Renée's end.
  • Hannibal Lecter finds Renée 'interesting,' and would like to invite her over to his temple 'to pick at her brain, to see how she think.' Given his cannibalistic tendencies, Renée keeps her distance from Lecter. Good thing that both Will Graham and Clarice Starling warned her ahead of time.
    • Her detective past has also caught the attention of the Jigsaw Killer, who wants to put her skills to the test. In a way, Renée kinda feel sorry for Jigsaw, seeing as how he was screwed over when searching for treatments regarding his illness. But she's one of the good guys, and has vowed to take Jigsaw down.
  • Some questions can only be answered with a mask.

    Saria 
Saria, Goddess of MacGuffin Person Reveals (Salia, Sage of Forest)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saria_oot.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Forest Medallion
  • Theme Song: Saria's Song
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Normal People Which Turn Out to be the MacGuffin, Girls Next Door Who Are Fans of the "Loser" Who Are Implied to be Love Interests, Magical Songs Coming From Her Ocarina, Nice and Feminine Girls, Only Friend or Maybe More Than That, Refusing to Give Up, Having Green Hair and Not Afraid of Wearing Short Shorts, Having the Virtue of Charity
  • Domains: Narrative, Reveals
  • High Priestess: Luvbi
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Opposes: Bass
  • Amused (or not) by: Tingle, Agitha, King Harkinian
  • Mentored by: Samos the Sage
  • A long time ago, there's a special place which the children never grew up and have a Fairy Companion. This place is named Kokiri Forest. Here, lives a girl named Saria which at first seems to be just Link's childhood friend which sometimes help him whenever Link plays his ocarina... But then, seven years later, turns out that Saria is actually one of the Seven Sages. She wasn't aware of this at first, but then she decided to help Link not only as a friend... but as a Sage. She was welcomed to the Pantheon with open arms.
  • Saria also noticed that her colleagues Darunia, Ruto, Impa and Zelda as well as Rauru (in the form of Kaepora Gaebora) are here too. She was amazed to discover that not only Link was ascended in the Pantheon either. In fact, many of the members from the Court of the Gods expected Saria's arrival some years ago.
    • Of course, she is not only friends with the sages from her timeline. Medli, another Sage that helped Link in an Alternate Timeline, is good friends with her as well. Saria even admires Medli's flying skills.
  • Is not amused to see that Ganondorf is in the Pantheon too, given that some years before her ascension, she sealed him with the help of the other Sages.
    • Ganondorf isn't the only one that gives Saria a headache. She still have to deal with another bad guys like Dark Link, Majora, Vaati, Zant, Ghirahim, Demise and Cia. Doesn't help that those same enemies are also in league with Ganondorf.
  • While she doesn't necessarily hate them, Saria is pretty much amused with Tingle, Agitha and King Harkinian. That being said, she seems to have a bit of respect with the latter two, given that Tingle is well... Tingle.
  • Going more into Link's social circle in the Pantheon, Saria is good friends which Navi, albeit she still calls the fairy out for being annoying, even thought Navi is much more nicer compared to Link's subsequent partners. Speaking of that, Saria thanks Midna and Fi for helping Link during his journeys.
  • When Saria was walking in the House of Narrative, she received the attention from Jak and Daxter, because once they mistake her for Keira. Likely because both have green hair. Doesn't help that Jak looks like Link with the Zora Tunic. Once Saria mets up with Keira, they became friends very fast. The fact that Keira is a daughter of a Sage implies that her father was someone important that saved their world. Saria isn't exactly wrong, as Samos (Keira's father) was, in fact, one of the people that saved his world.
    • There's a rumor that Samos is taking Saria under his wing, as she is training her skills against Ganondorf's future attacks on the Main House.
  • Is pretty surprised by the fact that Guy, one of the Gods from the House of Emotions sounds a lot like her best friend Link. There’s also the fact that he is one that knows about the power of courage, and given that Link is the wielder of the Triforce of Courage…
    • Saria also admires Batsu Ichimonji for the same reason.
    • While Saria admires determinators and she herself is one of them, she is not too found of Bass. In spite of his persistence in defeating Mega Man, Saria despise Bass' own pride and arrogance, thus making him no better than Ganondorf. And the less about her relationship with his .EXE counterpart, the better.
  • Jak, Keira and Samos aren't the only pointy-eared friends that she meet. Saria is also friends with Peter Pan and Tinker Bell, given that they're their main inspiration for her friends Link and Navi. There's also the fact that Peter can't grow up, not unlike the Kokiris from Kokiri Forest. Naturally, Saria is also friends with Wendy, likely because she seems her as Peter's girlfriend, albeit he and Wendy are only Just Friends.
    • Due to her friendship with Peter, Saria doesn't like Captain Hook, especially considering that he tried to kill Peter, Tinker Bell and Wendy.
  • Is also friends of Cael Cynder, as they're also friends with fairy companions. Unsurprisingly, Cael is also friends with Link and the aforementioned Peter Pan.
  • Ange noticed that her name is pretty similar to Salia, her commander turned friend in Arzenal. However, aside of the similarities involving the names, Saria is pretty different, as she's a kind-hearted woman which cares for everyone, especially Link.
    • However, if there's a thing that Ange and Saria have in common, is that they despise Embryo. When the villain tried to have Saria in his harem, she seems to like him due to his kind nature, but when Ange and Link, alongside Hilda and Tusk showed up, they warned Saria about Embryo's true nature. The fight ended with Embryo losing to Ange again, but not before telling Saria that "they'll meet again" in the future.
  • Saria also goes to the House of Plants to see and walk in the forests, as she lived in a forest before. She also goes to the House of Music to play her ocarina. In fact, Saria was the one that teached Link her song, which is, in fact, the legendary song of the Lost Woods.

    Sayaka Miki 
Sayaka Miki, Patron Saint of the Shocking Revelation (Oktavia von Seckendorff)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dgsayamagi.png
Oktavia 
  • Lesser Goddess, Intermediate Goddess as or when using Oktavia von Seckendorff
  • Symbol: A blue Soul Gem next to a Grief Seed.
  • Theme song: Decretum and I'm Such an Idiot (as Sayaka), She is a Witch (when summoning) Symposium Magarum (using Oktavia von Seckendorff).
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (as Oktavia, Chaotic Evil (Chaotic Good if summoned as a Doppel))
  • Portfolio: Magical Girls, Determinator, Knight Templar, The Power of Love, Wide-Eyed Idealist, Love Makes You Evil, Becoming the Monster, Coming back from the dead even stronger, Summon Magic
  • Domains: Law, Good, Magic, Despair, Love, Idealism
  • Allies: Madoka Kaname, Mami Tomoe, Kyoko Sakura (maybe more), Shirou Emiya, Martin Walker, Miki Aono, [[Specialized Narratives} Yu Narukami]], Ip Man, Isaac Clarke, Nagisa Momoe, Homura of the Crimson Squad, Hiiro Kagami/Kamen Rider Brave, Kouta Kazuraba/Kamen Rider Gaim, Mitsuzane Kureshima/Kamen Rider Ryugen, Judai Yuki, Shinji Kido/Kamen Rider Ryuki, Ren Akiyama/Kamen Rider Knight, Eiji Hino/Kamen Rider OOO, The Hero Club (especially Karin), Luka, Kazuma Kenzaki/Kamen Rider Blade, Shark, Tyrael, Aqua, Riku, Gabriel Belmont, the Gokaigers (especially Joe Gibken/Gokai Blue), Nonon Jakuzure, Peacock, Master Chief (Rebuilt Pedestal), Black★Rock Shooter, Mele, Juzo Sakakura
  • Rivals: Archer
  • Enemies: Yuuki Terumi, Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke, Slade, Vaas Montenegro, Tzeentch, Ninethe Phantom, Sora, the Incubators, Bernkastel, Lambadelta (one-sided), LUCIFER, Homura Akemi (post-Great Upheaval).
  • Opposed by: Mordred
  • Respected by: Elpizo, Bloody Marie
  • Watched with Interest By: The Gravemind
  • Mentor: Uther the Lightbringer.
  • Thought this was a profile for a cute girl? Too bad, it's Sayaka Miki.
  • Once the Avatar of Fallen Magical Girls, she was able to rise up from that status. But to make it up, she was given The Reveal for the fact that magical girls in her world will turn into Witches.
  • Archer tends to ask about her idol, Mami Tomoe, and her... Unlimited Musket Works. Wonders if he can add her flintlocks and Sayaka's Cutlasses to his collection. Sayaka, for her part, listens to his many stories with interest.... if she, Archer and Shirou happen to be in the same room, things get interesting.
  • Sayaka has a tendency to be Wrong Genre Savvy about the The Power of Love, this has been known to trigger transformations into Oktavia.
  • If not in this house, Sayaka can be found in the House of Music, listening to a violin recital of Ave Maria. Sayaka is known to cry while she enjoys the song, says it's her last memory of "him".
  • She has recently found a kindred spirit in the form of Captain Martin Walker, as both have gone through very similar trials, resulting in both forced to realize their foolish ideals of heroism.
  • Sayaka quickly became a good friends with Miki Aono, not just on the voice, but she was impressed on Miki's resolve and success as a Magical Girl, and occasionally wished that she might've been reborn in a similar universe like hers. The fact that Miki instead understood Sayaka's plight instead of flaunting her more fortunate life, and also not blaming her and knowing that it's the machinations of Kyubey that is to blame, made things even smoother.
  • At Sayaka's request, Yu Narukami brought her to the Midnight Channel, and by facing her Other Self she learned how to summon Oktavia von Seckendorff as a Persona of the Fortune Arcana, a skill that she put to good use during the "Great Upheaval". This, along with her getting over most of her problems has earned her entry into the GUAG magical girl sisterhood. She is forever grateful to Yu for this, bursting into tears as it sunk in that Oktavia had finally, finally been brought under control for good. Many gods and goddesses find it kind of ironic that Sayaka went from detesting Oktavia to wanting to use her in every fight.
    • As such, she is one of the few Magical Girls who trusted him even after the Great Upheaval, even pointing out that technically Yu doesn't summon Lucifer himself, but rather a figment of imagination given physical form that looks like him. The two have become sparring partners as well, Yu teaching her the best way to fight in tandem with her new Persona: the fact they both use swords helps in this regard.
    • Sayaka frightened more than a couple of people when they noticed her stumbling around with a very dark-looking Soul Gem for an extended period of time. Fearing the worst, Madoka confronted her: as it turned out, Sayaka and the Investigation Team were running an experiment of sorts to see if a Soul Gem's taint affected the use of a Persona, with Sayaka herself as the willing test subject. Results were conclusive: she couldn't even manifest her Persona, and ended up with a pounding headache for her trouble. She cleaned her Gem with a Grief Seed as soon as everything stopped spinning and apologized to Madoka for making her worry.
  • Recently accepted the tutelage of one Master Ip Man, who although admires and respects Sayaka's stuanch devotion to justice, constantly reminds his new student to not lose sight of family and friendship in her devotion to the good-fight.
  • She's also become close friends with Isaac Clarke. They've bonded over commonalities such as fighting horrific monsters, enduring Sanity Slippage, taking levels in badass, and finding a Second Love. Now, in addition to her powers and her ability to summon Oktavia as a persona, she also has the latest CEC weapons and tools. She and Kyouko also go on double dates with Isaac and Ellie whenever either couple aren't busy fighting off Necromorphs or Wraiths.
  • Despises Lucifer almost as much as Madoka does. That was her best friend whose life he ruined, after all. And thanks to his machinations, her earthly avatar doesn't even remember Madoka anymore.
  • While she doesn't hold any true antagonistic feelings for the knight, Mordred opposes her due to reminding her of the person she once was before learning a terrible truth, and is secretly jealous she managed to eventually move past her failings.
  • There was time when she didn't know what to think about Homura of the Crimson Squad, not only for her name, but her voice. However, once Homura heard that she became what she is out of broken love, something what isn't that far off what happened to her, they seemed to become nice to each other, and can be seen sometimes sparring together.
  • Used to despise Gabriel Belmont, due to her somewhat warped ideals of perfect Justice, she couldn't comprehend that his role as The Prince of Darkness, and the apex predator who keeps all the weaker, but more dangerous evils in check was positive in the long run. It didn't help that Gabriel is one of Homura's biggest supporters in the Pantheon, which infuriated her. Gabriel has on more then one occasion compared herself to him.
    • This changed upon several shocking revelations discovered when he personally went to the Sisterhood to apologize for his earlier actions, some of them told by Madoka. Gabriel had managed to find his redemption sometime after an attack she had led in the past, going as far as to cure people of a "demon virus" with no regard to his own beneift. Madoka is in many ways like his late wife/child hood friend Marie. Lastly, he intends to help the Sisterhood pull Homura back from the darkness, through any means necessary.
    • Riku was better able to explain "the apex predator", for he is like one as well, using the power of darkness to hunt lesser but more malicious entities of darkness. Riku also understands what its like to be taken by his inner darkness and come back from it.
  • Finds Aqua to be like a big sister to her, and since the second Keyblade War concluded, the two have formed a mentor-student bond.
  • Tyrael finds great promise in Sayaka, so long as she stays level headed. He has since taken her in as an apprentice.
  • Has become friends with Judai Yuki, due to both having gone through a fall from grace for the sake of a friend, but becoming a better person afterwards. Plus Sayaka finds his antics very funny, like when he did his "The Hour Is Upon Us" skit.
  • Has the dubious honor of being the only member of the Sisterhood who Bloody Marie doesn't have any real problem with. Apparently, the Skullgirl has something more akin to respect for her because she reminds her of her best friend Peacock at least, back when she was still Patricia both personality and voice-wise, and she too understands what it's like to become a monster because of wishing for another's sake. Sayaka's iffy on that subject, due to the former's ties with Homura, but she does still trust her more than another Mahou Shoujo thanks to Peacock's insistence.
  • Is respected by the usually human-hating Elpizo, who sees much of himself in her: Both of them were people who wanted to fight for what they believed was right, then fell into grief and self-loathing after a traumatic event while going insane and gaining a dark power in the process, except she rose again even stronger than before (eventually). She herself isn't entirely certain how to feel in return though, given his whole agenda of Kill All Humans while crazy, being a proud member of the GUAC and allied to Homura, yet also desiring to make amends for his sins. She usually responds when asked:
  • Good friends with Luka, due to their shared beliefs on being heroes, being in the service of Goddesses (though Sayaka does sympathize with him on how Ilias didn't quite turn out like Madoka), and angel motifs. While she was shocked to learn about his relations to Lucifer, she managed to push that aside upon realizing that Luka and he are not the same person, nor should a son have to inherit a father's...mother's sins.
    • She also has gone to him to learn new sword techniques. She's especially eager to try out Death Sword Chaos Star with Oktavia to back her up.
  • During sword training, an accidental thing was discovered about her weapons. Her cutlasses have triggers that can either turn them into Whip Swords or launch and detonate the blades. When asked why she hasn't been using those, she admits to not knowing about them until now.
  • Though formerly she respected the Master Chief for his selfless nature, devotion to good, and status as a "knight in shining armor" who has saved worlds, she has now come to despise him for one key reason: his stalwart defense and support of Homura Akemi. She also fears him, as she is quite aware of his superhuman abilities and decades of experience, and he drew his rifle on her when she attempted to attack Homura in the wake of the Great Upheaval, and threatened grievous harm upon her if she tried it again. When the Chief appeared to have turned traitor and attacked a peace conference, she was secretly elated that the fall of "the traitor's" guardian meant she had a legitimate reason to hate and fight him; when his name was cleared and the true circumstances of the situation were revealed to all, Sayaka actually seemed annoyed and disappointed that said reason was taken away with him revealed to still be as morally "clean" as ever. Unfortunately, this developing antagonism towards the Chief is being considered as yet another piece of evidence for the Gravemind that she would make a perfect new pawn for him...
    • Sayaka finaly confronted The Chief over the matter wanting answers. She got them, and her respect for him returned. Master Chief's net objective is to help the Sisterhood and Madoka, and the only way to do it right is to do it "Ma'am's Way", even if he has to get aggressive to do it. The person in charge of this clandestine operation couldn't trust Sayaka's hot headed nature enough to let her in on it. Rumors say that when she returned to her house, you could hear Sayaka screaming for hours, understandably upset with being Locked Out of the Loop on a critical detail.
    • Sayaka's increasingly-irrational hatred of Homura and all who support her has the Sisterhood's higher-ups increasingly worried, and has earned Sayaka the condemnation and warnings from some Good-aligned deities who see what kind of path she's walking and where it might lead.
  • Has great admiration for Lord Uther the Lightbringer, seeing him as a honorobable hero she aspires to be. She has decided to join in his training with other people to become Paladins but Uther has especially kept an eye on her, Because her backstory reminds him a little too much of Arthas, his old protégé that later killed him. She reasures him that she has long atoned for what happened to her.
    • However, she stays far away from Artix von Krigeger, whom Lord Uther was the Herald to long ago. She respects Artix's strength and the fact that he decided to Screw Destiny by not becoming the Anti Anti Christ in his homeworld but she's really frightened about his unholy love of killing the undead. She REALLY got freaked out when she heard of Artix going crazy during the Undead Uprising and gleefully smiting the undead and singing about it.
  • Sayaka doesn't seem to approve of Sora very much, on account that he forgave Homura for betraying Madoka. On the other hand, he refuses to pick a side in the conflict, and Sayaka admits that he's a bit like Madoka, in that both are hope bringers, and Sora even redeemed a handful of villains, among them Riku, Axel, and Rinzler. When he vanished at the conclusion of the Second Keyblade War, Sayaka was left speechless.

  • Fiora was supposedly killed by Metal Face during the invasion of Colony 9 but was instead taken and rebuilt as a Mechon. She reunited with Shulk and companions in Prison Island and encountered them in Valak Mountain and Galahad Fortress where she break Egil's control. She has made a heartful reunion with Shulk and joined his party.
  • Among the friends that she enjoy staying with are Shulk and Reyn, who she grew up with, and her older brother Dunban. She bonded with Melia despite her having unrequited feelings for Shulk but she has since put it aside.
  • She befriended several of the cyborg who were forcefully robotized against their will and use such cybernetic to fight against evil. Like the case with Cyrax, she could switch between Hom and Mechon form though she manage to restore herself by ancient High Entia technology.
    • Though she didn't like becoming a Mechon, she found some use with a metal body especially with death as the alternative. She additionally wanted to use the body so that she may be able to be with Shulk and even got her Hom body again.
    • With that said, she doesn't like those who believe that robotization is superior because she as well as several other Homs were likely forced to be Faced Mechons (except Metal Face, for obvious reasons).
  • Egil has made a formal apology to Fiora for what he did that made her into a cyborg, though Fiora considered it a blessing in disguise as she finds some advantages. He saw her kindness and mercy as if she truly was the reincarnation of Meyneth.
  • When worlds were merging, she was the one to answer it's call and partnered with an android, KOS-MOS.
  • She is not happy about Metal Face who made her into a Mechon after wounding her. She was going to give him a piece of her mind regarding his taunting to Shulk and Dunban before her ascension.
  • Zanza is rather bitter about Fiora as he believes that she still has a piece of Meyneth's soul in her which gives her her powers, like how Shulk may have pieces of his soul which gave him his powers.
  • She befriended Liezerota due to their status as Walking Spoiler (in fact, Fiora was such a spoiler that she was given a nickname Seven in order to hide the reveal). They also talk about how close they are to their loved ones sometimes.
  • Since she only has Shulk in her mind, she found some girls that only have one person in their mind and got together in the end. Especially since she and Shulk knew each other when they were younger.
  • Do not confuse with Fiora Laurent.

  • Enemies: Count Olaf, The rest of the fire-starting side of V.F.D. Pitch, Pennywise, Melkor, Grandma Stuffum, Junko Enoshima, Eric Cartman, The Narrator
  • Superior: The fire-fighting side of V.F.D.
  • Watching over: The Baudelaire Orphans
  • Avoided by: Snow White
  • Avoids: Arthur Read, the entirety of the House of Insects
  • Under suspicion by: Any god whose universe has had a Shout-Out in Snicket's writings.
  • A man shrouded in mystery and sadness, Lemony Snicket is an agent of V.F.D., who had taken it upon himself to chronicle the sad tale of the Baudelaire Orphans as a tribute to his deceased love Beatrice, the late mother of the children. He published 13 books that detailed their hardships, all of which warned the reader that there would not be a happy ending, and that the only thing awaiting them was sadness, telling the reader to put the book down so that they would not weep at the end.
  • When V.F.D. began to make its move into the Pantheon, Snicket was already a follower of the Narrator, but was rather inactive. When the House of Knowledge was attacked by an unknown arsonist, Snicket was held responsible, but revealed that he had nothing to do with the fire. As a V.F.D. agent, Snicket became more active, warning whomever would listen about the threat of the fire-starting side of the V.F.D. schism. When Count Olaf ascended by poisoning a good deal of the deities in the House of Family via the Medusoid Mycelium, a request was made for Snicket to ascend proper, though Snicket did not attempt to ascend until the Baudelaires had succeeded in doing so. As the Narrator already held one of the tropes Snicket named, Lemony was ascended via his second named trope: the Snicket Warning Label.
  • Count Olaf was in the House of Food harassing several of the gods there, when he was informed of Snicket's ascension. Eyes widening, Olaf hightailed it to his temple to plan on how to deal with one of his greatest enemies.
    • At first, Olaf tried to pin the blame of several acts of arson on Snicket, only to discover that just before the Hotel Denouement was burned down, Snicket had managed to retrieve a critical Vessel of Disaccharides that contained evidence proving that it was Olaf who set select fires so long ago, not Snicket, and that he was alive, not dead. With framing Snicket no longer an option, Olaf retreated once again, terrified at the idea of having to deal with Snicket.
  • When the Baudelaires heard about Snicket's ascension, they were actually surprised that the name of Jacques and Kit's brother was Lemony, as they, like other members of V.F.D., had thought Snicket dead. They did express surprise at how he had researched the events of their misfortunes, and now believe that he was the taxi cab driver who offered them a ride after the tragic death of Dewey Denouement. While they have not yet had a direct meeting, Snicket still watches over them out of dedication to Beatrice.
    • It is also unknown if Lemony plans on meeting his niece, named after the Baudelaires' mother, who has become a follower of the Baudelaires in hopes of figuring out their fates in the mortal realm.
  • Despite his name being cleared, which has allowed Snicket simple luxuries like renting out an office (Which he uses for a temple), Lemony continues to remain as an investigator and stays out of the Pantheon's public eye for the most part. He tends to visit the sites of battles between other deities and record what happened there.
  • While infamous for never revealing his face, as of recently, Snicket has finally unveiled his full appearance. This probably has to do with the fact that he's finally managed to clear his name.
    • Due to the recent reveal, he's been noted to sound very much like Brock Samson. Through researching what could be learned of Snicket's unknown history, Brock learned of the time Snicket and his siblings engaged in a knife fight against the waiters of Cafe Salmonella in the Snicket Snickersnee. He's since extended a poker offer to Snicket, though Lemony would rather discuss matters over a book rather than cards.
    • Likewise, having warned them of the schism of V.F.D. before his proper ascension, Mystery Incorporated finally figured out that Snicket sounded like Sheriff Stone from Crystal Cove. They're hoping that he can shed more light on V.F.D. now that he's in the Pantheon full-time.
    • Snicket has also been known to sound like Pitch due to a certain adaptation, as well as Pennywise while doing audio recording. Of course, even if he didn't sound like them, Snicket would've stayed clear out of their path.
  • The Narrator was pleased with his former follower ascending, though Snicket notes that he was the Trope Namer of the Narrator's title. Beyond that little spat, the two do not have a cordial relation, as while the Narrator finds the immutable nature of Snicket's tales to be gratifying, Snicket considers the Narrator to be far too sadistic for his tastes.
  • Being rather well-read, Snicket tends to spend a great deal of time in the House of Knowledge, reading up on whatever he can.
  • Snicket is unique among many gods in the pantheon in that he has been mistaken for his own creator, Daniel Handler, due to the fact that Handler uses Snicket's name as a pseudonym when publishing several of his works. In public, Handler claims to merely be Snicket's representative, even though he is the one who created Snicket's world to begin with. Quite obviously, many deities are confused when trying to distinguish the two.
  • He claims that Snow White was plunged into an incurable fever due to a horseback riding accident. While it is unknown how true the claim is, it has made the princess rather uneasy, and she thus tends to avoid Mr. Snicket.
  • He may have an alias known as Persimmony Glitchet. This came to Arthur's attention, as said person is admired as an author to his mortal friend, Fern, and the aardvark himself enjoys the man's works. Snicket has not been reached for correspondence however, due to fear that his enemies may try to harm the boy and his sister.
  • In his younger years, Snicket was notably more active as a V.F.D. trainee. Back then, he was still extremely cynical and tried to do his own thing due to how most adults in his world who are not a part of V.F.D. tend to be.
    • With this chapter of his life uncovered, many more dreadful facts were learned about Lemony Snicket. He views buttermilk as disgusting, has a thing for root-beer floats, and fed a man, though admittedly, Hangfire deserved it, to the Bombinating Beast, nowadays known as the Great Unknown. He also quit V.F.D. for an unknown amount of time before rejoining the organization.
  • Due to his experiences with the Great Unknown (AKA The Bombinating Beast), Snicket had an encounter with the author H.P. Lovecraft, whose works are among the few not documented by V.F.D. As both aren't exactly the happiest of people, they get along decently and agree on many points regarding humanity, though Snicket doubts the need for cosmic monsters when humans have been causing enough destruction and horror on their own.
    • Mr. Snicket would later have an encounter with Cthulhu, after pulling out the statue of the Bombinating Beast. His meeting with the Great Old One actually bore fruit, as Cthulhu is willing to work with Mr. Snicket...though that mainly has to do with the statue's ability to summon the Bombinating Beast, which the Great Old One is wary of.
  • As it turns out, Snicket is fully aware of Melkor and his schemes, having read all about his world as a child. Melkor was unnerved by how much a mere mortal knew about him, but is overall unconcerned about Mr. Snicket.
    • This also applies to any deity whose universe has shown up in some way, shape, or form in Snicket's world. Said deities are also a tad unnerved by this fact, with some wanting to, or are participating in, an investigation into V.F.D.
  • While Snicket prefers the company of quiet, well-read people, he knows fully well that the Trope Pantheon is filled with good people who prefer to spend their time fighting like maniacs or aren't the brightest knives in the drawer, and evil people who are just as well-read as Snicket is and have many long-term schemes planned.
  • While he enjoys visits to Iroh's tea shop, he has warned the firebender about how tea should be as bitter as wormwood and sharp as a two-edged sword, as it tends to be a good sign of noble people. Iroh has taken this advice with a grain of salt, as he has different values concerning tea. If one should enjoy sweeter tea, then who is he to judge? Also, considering how Iroh invented Bubble Tea in his world, he sees such advice as restricting. Beyond that though, the two get along well, especially since Iroh lends an ear whenever Snicket's depression gets to the point where he can only sob.
  • As a gourmand, Snicket frequents the House of Food quite a bit, describing the dishes there in his report in detail. He isn't a fan of those deities whose dishes are utterly repulsive, like the ones concocted by Grandma Stuffum, nor can he stomach Max Tennyson's alien foods, though he found Max's position as a Plumber admirable.
    • Snicket did however, become fast friends of Yukihara Soma, as he found the boy's dishes to intriguing. He isn't happy when sampling one of his failed dishes, but understands the need for such failures and doesn't hold it against him (He also set up events so that Sunny would meet Yukihara at some point). He's one of the few gods who will willingly sample such failures in order to ensure that Soma gets the feedback that he needs.
    • Overall, if your skill in the House of Food is that of a Supreme Chef, Snicket will likely be there to sample your cooking.
  • Before Snicket had properly ascended, he had been sneaking around the other houses gathering information. Much to his utter dread, Snicket spotted the Man with a Beard but No Hair, and the Woman with Hair but no Beard being present in the House of Justice. Snicket was horrified at their presence, especially once he heard of the Reformation being planned for the GUAL, and after ascending, warned the reformers about the two. Everyone present rolled their eyes at this, believing that the two villains do not pose a threat due to them not even being proper gods in the first place. The only one who took Snicket's warning seriously was Captain America due to the actions of one version of Zemo. He had no powers after all, and yet he managed to disband the Avengers through his manipulations. While the Captain offered a Snicket a role, Snicket declined, partly out of fear of the Man and the Woman, and also because he has suspicions of V.F.D. trying to get someone else into the Pantheon after him...
  • In an attempt to get rid of Snicket, Olaf sent Junko Enoshima after him. Junko was more than happy to oblige due to her fascination with the despair rampant in their world. She found Snicket in his flat, looking at the book that Beatrice wrote that told him why she could not marry him. Taking her chance, Junko proceeded to taunt Snicket about his failed relationship with Beatrice and the constant failings of the so-called 'noble side' of V.F.D. Unfortunately for Enoshima, Snicket didn't fall into despair, as he no longer has any hope of happiness to begin with and considered her speech to be nothing more than words that he repeats and writes himself everyday, meaning that there was nothing left for Junko to break. Not only that, but even with Count Olaf giving her information, not even Enoshima knew about every unfortunate event Snicket has suffered. Junko then proceeded to throw herself down on her knees and beg for the information, as she wanted every detail of Snicket's unfortunate life. Snicket refused however, and dragged her out of the flat.
    • This event has caused Junko to swear greater loyalty to Count Olaf, as she is now desperate to obtain every scrap of horrific information from the world of ASOUE. When hearing about this, Snicket just gave a heavy sigh, and continued with his research.
  • Like the Baudelaires, Snicket had an encounter with Eric Cartman, who reminded him of Stew Micchum, except a tad more immature. He just looked at Cartman in disgust and left. Cartman was furious at being ignored and now wants revenge on Mr. Snicket.
  • Eventually, Snicket was confronted by The Question, who had been laying low as he attempted to pry open the secrets of V.F.D. Surprisingly enough, Snicket did not confirm, nor deny, Question's theories, as he implied that they may all be correct, or incorrect, or a mix the two. In the end, the two have become allies...much to the worry of deities who distrust Mr. Snicket, as they fear that he may have recruited The Question into V.F.D...
  • Once entered the House of Insects...and immediately regretted it, finding the creatures there to be even more horrific than Snow Gnats. Of course, that became a moot point when Lemony learned that the House was capable of handling all environments...thus enabling the Snow Gnats to return and join in on attacking Mr. Snicket, who ran out of the house in a panic.
  • Ultimately, with all of the unfortunate experiences in Snicket's mortal life, moving to the Pantheon has not diminished Snicket's depression one bit. He fully believes that if or however the story within the Pantheon ends, there will not be a happy ending. He's since decided to start warning people who read over the records of each major event in the Pantheon of how these stories will turn out, imploring them to find some other page on TV Tropes.

Masayoshi Hazama & Hidenori Goto, High Prophets of Mid-Season Twists (Masayoshi: Samurai Flamenco, Samuenco, Flamen Red | Hidenori: Samurai Policeman)

  • Enemies: SHOCKER
  • Opposes: Annie Wilkes (moreso in Masayoshi's case)
  • The story of toku fanboy Masayoshi Hazama and policeman Hidenori Goto is weird to say the least. It all began when Goto encountered Masayoshi naked in an alleyway, the latter claiming to be a superhero known as Samurai Flamenco. From there, they get to know each other better and go up against increasingly bizarre threats that emerge from nowhere. Pretty telling how a tale of two men with differing personalities who become friends would take a turn for the bizarre after going up against a random guy that transformed himself into a gorilla with a built-in guillotine.
  • One of the first things that Masayoshi was told about the Pantheon was that the various toku heroes that he's a fan or are indeed real, somehing that made him very excited. While he is aware that the power gap between them and himself is significant (the fact that Masayoshi often has to rely on homemade weapons as opposed to most of the other toku heroes' fancier arsenal), he's willing to provide them help whenever possible.
    • Shinnosuke Tomari is among the few toku heroes that both Masayoshi and Goto work with on a regular basis given that Tomari is a police officer like Goto. The duo were surprised to hear that Tomari's ally Krim Steinbelt had significant contributions to the various items that Tomari uses in fighting crime. While Masayoshi appreciated Tomari's offer to have him and Goto use Steinbelt's items, Masayoshi told Tomari that he and Goto are fine for the time being, but they'll still consider the offer at some point.
  • Not only were the toku heroes that Masayoshi admires are present, but so are a number of their enemies as well. He and Goto were alarmed that many of them had congregated through SHOCKER, which established itself as a significant threat to many of Masayoshi's heroes. While Masayoshi and Goto had to deal with different oncoming threats, they never had to deal with a singular organization that was more or less responsible for these specific calamities in the past. The two are prepared to use whatever they can to stop SHOCKER from succeeding.
  • With how often they hang around with each other, it's really easy to believe that they could be a gay couple...and it actually kind of makes sense since Masayoshi made a marriage proposal to Goto (the circumstances behind that were less than ideal and Masayoshi didn't know what love was until then, but still). So far, the two are just really good friends, but with all that happened in their adventures, one has to wonder when they'll be more than friends.
  • Since he was a child, Masayoshi has been a fan of toku. To pay the bills, he works for a modeling agency. After his parents were murdered, he was taken in by his grandfather, who spearheaded the Samurai Flamenco project, of which Masayoshi got the name for his superhero identity. As Masayoshi went from fighting against ordinary criminals to supernatural organizations, he gradually became more mature, but still kept his ideals at heart.
    • It's pretty clear that Masayoshi admires many of the toku heroes, though there are a few of them that he really likes in particular. He's amazed at how the Gokaigers are able to use the powers of Super Sentai teams that came before them to fight evil and in particular, likes hanging out with Gai Ikari of that team, who happens to be a Sentai fanboy. It helps that Masayoshi led the Flamengers, a team that's very similar to Sentai in a number of ways, before.
    • He got himself acquainted with other admirers of heroes, such as Izuku Midoriya, who himself is a fan of heroes and became an actual hero thanks to his determination. Masayoshi really likes hanging out with Viewtiful Joe, another superhero fanboy that's also a real hero and Viewtiful Joe shares the same feeling when it comes to being with Masayoshi. Masayoshi is also interested in Phoenix Ranger Featherman R, Ken Amada's favorite show and it surprised the latter to find that someone else seems to like that show.
    • At one point, he somehow found himself with someone who appeared to be a female Henshin Hero in the midst of a battle against some mooks. After the mooks got defeated, the hero revealed herself to be Nyarko and that she had a Full Force form with moves that were taken by some Kamen Riders. Masayoshi was a bit surprised to find that out, but nevertheless remained on good terms with her after learning she was a toku fangirl.
  • Goto is a cop and appears to be more level-headed than Masayoshi...key word being appears. After meeting Masayoshi, Goto got to know him and his love of heroes better and gradually became an important partner for Masayoshi. Goto also sends texts to his girlfriend, but the truth about that is much more twisted than he'd be willing to admit.
    • Whenever he isn't with Masayoshi, Goto is often working with various other police officers cracking down on crimes of varying degrees of weirdness. While he gets along fine with a fair number of cops, he really wasn't thrilled to hear that there was a corrupt cop or two running around and sees those kinds of officers as a potential source of interference when dealing with something serious.
      • Of the various police officers he works with, Akane Tsunemori is someone he gets along with rather well. It may be due to her determination in the midst of situations that are arguably even worse than what he has gone through, including losing a friend of hers. It's also likely that it's her friendly personality is a factor in it.
    • Goto had a girlfriend when he was in high school, but she disappeared and never returned since then. He coped with it by sending texts to himself or more accurately, think about what his girlfriend would say about what he's doing at the moment and make texts based on that. He empathizes with a number of those that lost their loved ones, notably Tomoyo Okazaki, who arguably had it worse than Goto not just when it came to losing someone they loved, but also their life in general.
    • He managed to find plenty of common ground with Kyon not just due to sounding a little similar, but also how they found themselves involved with an energetic partner and getting themselves involved in a variety of crazy scenarios.
  • Of the different people in the Pantheon, both Masayoshi and Goto are really unnerved by Annie Wilkes, even if she clearly doesn't share the same line of interests as the two of them. Hearing about how she kidnapped a writer and caused psychological torture on him just to get something she wants in a story to happen brings back bad memories of how Haiji Sawada, a young man obsessed with Samurai Flamenco, and how he put Masayoshi's friends at risk (Goto included) just to give Masayoshi a "tragic backstory" and turn him into a dark anti-hero.
  • After fighting against an alien invasion, Masayoshi was told by the will of the universe (his universe more specifcally) that his imagination was responsible for all the crazy adventures he and his friends got themselves into. Regardless of if any sort of toku-related adventure that occurs is the result of Masayoshi wanting an adventure of some kind, the Pantheon has all sorts of crazy events happening by default, something that he and Goto were told of beforehand.

Quasideities

    Charles Kane 
Charles Foster Kane, God of Long-Spoiled Spoilers (Citizen Kane)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/citizen_kane_welles.jpeg
  • Theme Song: Citizen Kane Suite
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A sled with the word 'Rosebud' on its top
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Classical Antihero Decoy Protagonist, Collector of the Strange, Powerful and Helpless, Broken Ace, Going after the Rich and Powerful Despite being as such, Arbitrarily Large Bank Account, narcissistic, ultimately Dying Alone because he wanted to be loved and gave no love in return, becoming the very thing he hated.
  • Domains: Nobility, Industry, Isolation, Love (Betrayed)
  • Followers: The Reapers
  • Allies: Vlad Masters, Norma Desmond
  • Enemies: Scrooge McDuck, Seto Kaiba, Sephiroth
  • Opposes: Mr. Burns, Looten Plunder, J. J. Jameson
  • Opposed by: The House of Love, various creators
  • Pitied by: Jay Gatsby, Lois Lane, Clark Kent/Superman
  • It's a story basically everyone knows by now; a man emerged as one of the richest people on the planet. Yet no matter what he did, he couldn't not express his love towards anyone. In the end, he ended up Dying Alone, where a reporter tried to figure out what motivated him. While he failed to find the answer, the audience was gifted with the answer; the sled "Rosebud" represented the love he so desperately sought and was taken away from him ever since he moved away from his mother and son. It was ironic that this world would be the only one that didn't know the secret origins of Charles Kane.
    • Kane at least managed to bring happiness to one person in the Pantheon. After languishing for her death at the hands of Sephiroth, Aeris no longer wanted to be remembered in that way. An opening was created for White Mages, but she needed someone to take her place. It just so happened that Kane was more than happy to take the burden if it means having a second chance at happiness.
    • This development did not please Sephiroth as he was robbed of one of his greatest pleasures in the Pantheon. He has since attacked Kane on several occasions.
  • His temple is the massive castle known as Xanadu. It houses a wide variety of objects, but holds very few people to maintain it. When he found out his beloved sled could still be in his castle, he frantically searched for it to no avail. It appears that the Powers That Be has cursed him. His sled is indeed there, but his is doomed to be unable to find it among his vast domain. Some prophets say he will be reunited with his sled when he able to express an act of true love towards someone.
    • To add insult to injury, none of his past lovers want any part of becoming his herald. Neither Emily nor Susan want to be with a man who cares more about himself than his own lovers. The only familiar person in his temple is Jedediah Leland and even he failed to achieve any sort of herald status. Still, Leland hopes that this new lease of life will help him out in the long run.
  • His biggest issue is that even with his ascension he has failed to gain any true allies. His first task in the House of Commerce was to attack the evil gods there to fight for the little man. Mr. Burns responded with a smear campaign that forced the House to severely limit his presence there. Not even Chester Bum could defend him with a straight face.
    • Scrooge and Kaiba promptly pointed out that while of railing against the rich despite being rich himself isn't a crime, the two believed he is only doing so to win the love of the people rather than actually giving a damn about their plight. Though it is likely the two are actually mad because Kane has been hurting their own fiances with his talk.
  • The House of Love was less forgiving. The deities were horrified with the fate of both his wives. As such, they advised their followers against having a relationship with him.
    • One of his few allies there is Vlad Masters. He dismisses criticism for his pursuit of Maddie as false, and sees a man who craves love as he does. As such, he gives Kane pointers on how to woo women... which will only likely to cause him to fail even more.
  • Authors both deified and mortal despise his name. Kane reminds them of how their stories are so well known, the surprise is robbed from the viewer. This also arrives in the form of Content Leaks that reveal the nature of works before their arrival.
  • He did manage to find someone as desperate to find adoration as he did. Norma Desmond arrived at his temple for a proposition; she would date him if he bankrolled her to more headline shows. Thus he helped Norma to attend a number of roles... all to a quiet crowd. Charles then proceeded to clap to the encores himself. Thus, he was pilloried by the press once more. When Kane went to Jameson's office to protest, the news editor showed him the door. The two still dream of jump-starting their fame despite the setbacks.
    • In response, Lois Lane did some research on the man. With the help of Clark Kent, she released an editorial describing Kane as someone who never learned how to love someone. This helped gain some sympathy from the general public.
  • One of his few true friends, Jay Gatsby tried to help Kane to better establish him in the Pantheon. He knows what it's like to be isolated despite having all the money in the world. It was a surprise to Jay how much more the common folk liked the two of them than their own peers and decided that the two should do more outreach work for those people. Unfortunately, Kane's own selfishness keeps getting in the way of gaining praise.
  • He's also present in the House of Knowledge.

  • Laura Hunt was once thought to have been murdered. Mark McPherson was put in charge of the case; throughout his investigations he learned that Laura was a charismatic and genuinely kind person, which got her the rare attention of Waldo Lydecker, an amazingly egotistical yet sophisticated writer. Theirs was a platonic relationship, with Lydecker mentoring Laura and helping advance her career. However, he was jealous of any man who got near her and especially despised Shelby Carpenter, a "kept man" who Laura was interested in. McPherson's investigations on Laura led him to fall in love with the dead woman. Then she surprised everyone by appearing at her house, alive and well, and not at all aware of what had been going on in her absence. But even with this turn of events, someone had still been killed and it was urgent to find the culprit. The truth came soon enough: it was Lydecker who had attempted to murder Laura in a possessive fury, but instead killed one of her models by mistake. After Laura turned up alive, Lydecker tried again, but ended up dead himself, freeing Laura from him.
  • Ascended to the Pantheon some indefinite amount of time after the events described above, after some deities in the House of Reveals and Twists brought up her case to the higher-ups and argued that her falsely reported death made for a great twist that surely made her worthy of ascension. Charles Kane was her most adamant sponsor. Laura's first thoughts on the subject (beyond the usual disbelief at something so fantastical by her world's standards) were about how Lydecker would have surely jumped at such an offer. Either way, she accepted, out of curiosity if nothing else.
  • Laura's experiences with Lydecker have made her, at best, wary of deities who are known for their massive egos. For that reason, she generally stays away from the House of Pride. She is also distant towards Charles Kane even though he helped her ascend. Thus far he has been nothing less than a gentleman to her and she is likewise polite, but Laura thinks it's for the best not to get too close to him after hearing his history. Though, given his goal was to be loved and he ultimately failed at it and ended up dying alone, Laura supposes he is more worthy of pity than Lydecker, who was more self-assured.
  • Also has a few choice words regarding the House of Tainted Love and any deities who take their infatuations to dangerous extremes, again because of Lydecker, whose love for her led to his insanity, which in turn nearly led to her death. If there's one deity who combines an inflated opinion of themselves with a twisted way of pursuing their love interest, that would be Gaston, so one can see why Laura wouldn't like the man at all, especially after hearing about his relationship to Belle and the Beast.
  • Laura works as an advertising executive and as such is often called upon to do some sort of work or another at the House of Advertising. In such a capacity she finds herself often working with such deities as Roger Thornhill and Don Draper. Thornhill is pleasant enough, but as for Draper... besides the fact that he tends to be very self-centered, he is also a disagreeable cad in just about every other aspect, as far as Laura can see. Still, she has to give him that he is a competent advertiser who takes his job seriously, so Laura has long made peace with the idea of working with him. She just doesn't give him the time of day outside of work-related matters.
  • Laura is a generally friendly person with a strong moral fiber, so she can be considered to be fairly popular and good at making friends. She managed to break through Lydecker's ice, afterall. She thought it very funny when someone told her there was already another deity who looked just like her and thought it a good idea to make her acquaintance. That was the start of how she came to be good friends with Lucy Muir, and by extension the love of her life, Captain Gregg. Laura found their story very romantic and praised Gregg for not jealously clinging to Lucy, while finding some similarities between Lydecker and Lucy's other romantic option, Miles Fairley.
  • Lucy Muir is a published author, and together with Lydecker, it seems like Laura has a knack for attracting people in that area, considering she shortly got a visit from a timid, young Japanese man called Subaru Mikazuki, who as a mystery novel writer was very interested in talking to Laura about her experiences, finding her mistaken death to be an inspiring topic. Laura was more than happy to oblige, and afterwards has made a habit of making calls at a very flustered Subaru's own temple, thus widening his own social circle even more. Even Haru took a quick liking to Laura, a rarity for the cat.
  • Cases of Faking the Dead seem to be common in the Pantheon, but not many know of cases where the person manages to do so unintentionally as Laura did. Perhaps it's for that reason that she has piqued the interest of some deities known for Faking the Dead or otherwise involved in such a thing. For one, there is Metro Man, a superhero who got tired of saving the day and so let people think his archenemy Megamind killed him, but really he went into hiding to pursue his true passion: music. Laura finds it rather selfish of him to leave the city at Megamind's mercy, though since Megamind turned out to be a good guy deep down in the end, she reckons things worked out for the better, so Laura is friendly with the former superhero.
    • She doesn't have such a generous opinion of John Kreese, Johnny Lawrence's abusive father figure who at one point faked his death and managed to earn back Lawrence's trust through the ruse. Lawrence was rather suspicious of Laura at first for that reason, wondering if her faux death wasn't really evidence of her being just as duplicitous a person as Kreese. Laura was sorry that he felt that way, but being an altruist by nature, she couldn't quite bring herself to leave him alone after learning how downtrodden he has been in the past, and so eventually managed to earn his genuine trust by gradually and subtly including him in her social circle and supporting him however she can in his endeavors.
    • Laura's story brings painful memories to Homer Simpson of his mother perpetually Faking the Dead and therefore never being there for him for a great part of his life. Laura can't do much but feel sorry for how the whole thing tainted Homer's childhood and extend a friendly hand. Given Homer isn't the sort to mope around or hold resentment, he accepts this happily.
  • She has disturbingly attracted the attention of the alien abomination known as BOB. This is certainly because he once killed a woman also named Laura (Palmer), which led to a lot of hubbub surrounding her mysterious death. Considering Palmer was more-or-less designated as The Chosen One who would lead to BOB's downfall in the long term, he's probably wondering whether this Laura isn't meant to follow a similar fate. Either way, he seems pretty intent in tormenting her. Laura herself was horrified to hear about Palmer's murder, but seems intent in not falling to BOB and defying him in whatever ways she can.
  • Has also become a target of the Merry Widow Killer, also known as Uncle Charlie. This is because he considers Laura to be immensely ungrateful to Lydecker, an accomplished and cultured man who deigned to spend his time with her to teach her sophistication. Of course, Laura thinks Charlie's perspective is very skewed, but it's probably no use trying to reason with a man who seems to be even sicker than Lydecker and she finds him to be just abhorrent, not only for his crimes but also for his very cynical views of people and the world that are diametrically opposed to Laura's.

  • Monika Drevis at first may seem like a nice and sweet woman and a loving wife and mother. But as a matter of fact, she happens to be married to a Mad Scientist that murders people for a living and yet nobody seemed to question her, at least her daughter didn't think of her as particularly dangerous. Having seemingly died of an Incurable Cough of Death, Monika returned from the dead one day to claim revenge on her husband for alleguedly cheating on her but the reality was different, as the real reason she died was because she found out that her husband wanted to turn their daughter into a doll and was murdered for trying to get in the doctors way. And yet, the fact that she wanted to save her daughter even from beyond the grave, her reasons were also far more sinister.
    • Turns out that Monika actually encouraged the doctors' activities as she indulged in the constant carnage he commited only because she was one of the rare few Alfred decided to spare one day. She fell hard for him after that and later invited him to the mansion that became the Drevis residence and Monika would start to see the same signs her husband showed as a kid on her daughter and she was delighted that she would become like him. One may wonder if the reason she wanted Aya to live was to keep her husband work continued by her daughter and even potentially spite her husband.
  • Her ascension was a pretty unremarkable event, as she wanted to keep a low profile and just keep an eye on her daughter Aya who quickly found out about her mother's ascension and the reunion was a heartwarming one with both in tears and cuddling one another. There were however some mixed feelings given that she almost got her killed when she brought the curse to the Drevis Residence and the fact that secretly Monika wants to see Aya become like her father, something Aya isn't really aware of, makes her a bit dissapointed that she is still the same innocent girl.
    • With Dr. Drevis on the other hand things where a bit more complicated as both are still on very bad terms. She is still sore that he actually murdered her but deep down she still loves him and would do everything to be with him but she can't forget about how he ended up betraying her, not to mention cheating on her with Maria. Alfred just tries to avoid her and not incur her wrath but admitted that she is as beautiful as ever and would not mind returning to her side if she didn't insist on tarnishing Aya's innocence.
  • It's believed that the one that masterminded her ascension was the mysterious salesman known as Ogre who is possibly the one that also granted her the curse to raise all the people Dr. Drevis kill and take him away for herself in order to protect Aya. It's also speculated that he also was able to keep most of Monika's darker aspects hidden from others until it was eventually exposed by some GUAG agents. Nowadays she tries to pretend she is the loving and caring mother figure even if several folks don't buy it but Aya still hasn't really noticed that her mother isn't that well intentioned either and it's unlikely Monika will cause any more trouble unless given the powers of the curse.
  • Speaking of the curse, it seems like she wasn't the only one that unleashed a terrible curse brought by a mysterious demonic figure. Turns out Misao, a shy and meek teenager haunted her school shortly after her gruesome death and there are hints that maybe Misao was given the same powers by the same entity. On her part she finds Monika particularly creepy and doesn't trust her at all while the latter is only trying to be friendly only to learn more about Library the clone of Aya that alfred ended up creating.
  • Found a lot of kinship with certain members of the pantheon like Lady Macbeth who shared the same role of being an accomplice to their respective husbands in their evil plots, although Monika was later replaced by Maria and later murdered. She also likes Misa Amane for her devotion to Light and also because she is mildly curious about the nature of the Shinigami Misa is associated with, which could prove useful for her and wonders if the mysterious ogre could be a Shinigami himself.
  • Many wonder how truly twisted is Monika behind her "caring mother" façade and there have been accounts where she manipulated most of the people she was around, the doctor included, and one particular even called her even more evil that the doctor (of course, that servant has been long dead by that point) and considering that she is not really motivated by her being cheated on (kinda) many assume the reason she wanted to save Aya from her fate as a doll is to spite her husband.
    • The sticking point in particular is how she met her husband and why he decided to stick with him, as the mansion belongs to her and it used to be used for torturing prisoners. Most of theories chalk it up as the woman being in love with murder, death and the fear of it as a particular nasty fetish of hers, which caught the attention of Dr. Jonathan Crane as he was very interested in the infamous history of the Drevis Household and approached Monika to really learn how evil she can be. Turns out they both share the same cunning nature and while he finds his whole scarecrow getup quite silly, it does suit her purposes.
  • Although her relationship with Aya is in a healthy state, in fact when she is with Aya is when she is not trying to do anything harmful to others, the grand majority of the pantheon doesn't consider her an stellar mother. Not to the extenct of "murdering her to preserve her innocence" but the fact that she has probably enabled most of Aya's questionable traits is something others can't easily ignore. In particular, sisters Ryuko Matoi and Satsuki Kiryuin despise her for reminding them of their own mother Ragyo and while they appreciate she doesn't physically abuse Aya, the above stated cannot be ignored and Ragyo has tried to make both of them follow in the path. Monika simply plays nice and doesn't try to get into conflict with the two since she knows she can't do anything if they decided to act but considers them way too bothersome for her own taste.
    • That said, even she has her limits and we aren't talking about her opposing Alfred because he wanted to make her daughter into a doll. Turns out there is an even worse father out there and it's Shou Tucker, an alchemist who while nice on the outside has revealed himself to be quite a monster given what he did to his daughter Nina. In fact, hating him is one of the only things she and the doctor Drevis can't agree on and that's saying something. The Batter is also someone Monika is conflicted on considering how he too ended up killing his own son (or creator, nobody is really sure) and also because Aya is scared of him, possibly something having to do with Aya not being "pure" as her parents would think, possibly taking a lot from her mother after the Batter personally met her and almost "purified" on the spot if she even dare to use her ghost form.
  • The story of Kratos and Atreus intrigues her as it mirrors the one of her family even in the part where the mother isn't as innocent as one may think. Neither like Monika and they wouldn't have even paid her attention had her not made comments about Atreus "future" and how he reminds her of her precious daughter, hinting that like Aya the boy could end up becoming someone far more sinister which Kratos certainly doesn't want.
  • Apparently she still has access to her ghostly powers but rarely uses them unless someone really pisses her off and considering it requires to make a deal with Ogre to actually have said powers it could prove more trouble than it's worth. She thought that Hisako would probably pity her but that was farther from the truth as not only did she calm down considerably but is aware of the true nature of the woman. Then there was Kayako Saeki, who had a similar situation like Monika with a husband that murdered her and some unfinished business but Saeki hardly cares about the similarities and would rather see her die than even work with her.
  • The name Monika has been a familiar one for a while to several deities and while the other Monika has been mostly trying to turn a new leaf, the fact that there was another Monika causing trouble definitely bothered her. In fact, most of her club mates aren't fond of Ms. Drevis either and worst of all, the two aren't that different with jealousy, obsession and murderous rage being common sticking points between the two. Even the books she reads are horrible works of literature (although Yuri is mildly interested in a few of them) and the fact that she reads it to her daughter makes matters worse. Drevis just laughs it off and has even encouraged the other Monika to make her love interest hers and hers only again, something that her friends have tried to prevent from happening again to avoid unnecessary suffering.
