    The Nothing 
The Nothing, Unholy Imagination Destroyer (Void)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nothing_9.jpg
  • Overdeity
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Imagination Destroyer, Eldritch Abomination, Space Time Eater, Power of the Void, Fog of Doom
  • Domains: Anti-Imagination, Inconceivability, Destruction, Nothingness
  • Herald: Gmork
  • "Allies": The White, The Auditors of Reality, Fenrir
  • Enemies: Everyone, but especially creators, Shizuku Tsukishima, The Pagemaster, William Shakespeare, Ressha Sentai ToQger, ZUN, the Endless (special mention goes to Dream and Destruction)
  • The Nothing is exactly what its name implies. An incomprehensible entity that turns everything it touches to nothing, as if whatever was there before never really existed. Its existence (for lack of a better word) is the product of humanity's cynicism, apathy and contempt for dreams and fantasies. It threatened to devour the entire world of Fantasia and through that, destroy humanity's ability to imagine, driving them insane according to the wishes of the Manipulators. Fortunately, one boy's bottomless creativity managed to restore Fantasia and dispel the Nothing.
  • The Auditors of Reality heard of the utility of the Nothing and thought it could further their goals, so they endeavored to recreate it in the Pantheon for their own use. The White were excited at the prospect of having another force of absolute annihilation up and helped out (though disappointed that the Nothing can't erase that which isn't fictional/imaginary). Although the Auditors succeeded, the Main House caught wind of what they were doing and hurried to do something about it before they unleashed the Nothing. Their solution was to keep the Nothing at the very edges of the Pantheon, and a restricted Rainbow Line path was built to both block the Nothing from advancing and signal deities where the entity is. Under those conditions, the Main House agreed that despite everything, the Nothing was a significant character and granted it a title.
  • The Nothing is one of the top threats in the Pantheon, since stories and imagination are the basis of the realm and the vast majority of the deity population comes from the minds of creators, so the Nothing can simply erase them. Its ascension was met with many protests and deities wondering just what the hell the Main House was thinking to allow an entity that could erase almost everything in the Pantheon to be around. note  The Auditors and the White are also pretty pissed since recreating the Nothing was fairly troublesome and access to it has been rendered incredibly difficult. But at least the Nothing has one loyal agent, the Gmork, who spontaneously showed up in the Nothing's otherwise unused temple, and he's very willing to work with the Auditors and the White to unleash the Nothing.
  • Gmork is the Nothing's Herald, a vicious sort-of werewolf creature that wishes to support the Nothing due to a tragic past (that doesn't really justify his actions) and general nihilism. He will stop at nothing to hunt down those who'd oppose the entity. Given the state of the Nothing in the Pantheon, Gmork is seen as its face, and it's usually him the Nothing's enemies have to deal with. Gmork has very similar characteristics to Loki's son Fenrir, another wolf creature that craves the annihilation of everything. They often support each other in their common goals, usually expressed in the form of them ganging up on their opponents to tear them apart.
  • Note that the Nothing has no feelings of any sort for the Auditors, the White, or any of its "allies". Not even Gmork. So, if it ever manages to destroy the Pantheon, none of those will be spared. This is just as well for the White and Gmork, but the Auditors have plans to ensure this won't affect them.
  • Almost no one can perceive the Nothing's true form. It's said that trying to look at it directly is like trying to see anything while being blind. Most deities are too fearful of it to have any curiosity to go near the thing and see how true that is, but those who've tried have reportedly felt ill. Also, getting too close to it gives deities a suicidal inspiration to jump into it unless they have a strong will. However, none of this has any effect on those who live in Real Life (unless they've died).
  • A powerful ability to imagine can stave off the Nothing and reverse its damage. Indeed, that's why the Rainbow Line was chosen as the means of blocking it, and the ToQger are always on top of things stopping the Auditors/White/Gmork's latest scheme (occasionally with the backup of the Grand United Alliance of Destruction when the White talk them into helping) with their imagination powers. The existence of all manner of creators, writers, artists and other imaginative deities is also problematic for the Nothing, which is why one of its top targets includes the unassuming aspiring writer Shizuku Tsukishima, especially as it was a rather meek little book-loving boy that was the Nothing's undoing in the past. Fortunately, the Pagemaster keeps a close eye on Shizuku, and any other writers, to ensure no harm comes to them.
  • Supposedly, William Shakespeare was one of the humans who visited Fantastica, although he went down in its history as "Shexper". Seeing that as proof that he's one of the greatest creative minds among humans, Gmork is particularly interested in tearing him to pieces and cause humanity to despair.
  • If Dream of the Endless is considered the weaver of all the stories in the world, then the Nothing, who destroys everything creative, could be seen as his opposite in that regard. Dream is rather furious that the Nothing is capable of turning all of his creation to, well, nothing, but he places trust on the fact that the Rainbow Line and the ToQger can hold it off indefinitely and so won't try to intervene himself. Ironically Destruction is only second to Dream in detesting the Nothing, if only because what the Nothing brings is like a corruption of what Destruction represents.
  • Emperor Calus sees the Nothing as proof that his philosophy of living life to the fullest and not waste any time fighting for lost causes is the correct one, considering how all the deities in the Pantheon can do is hold back the Nothing and not eliminate it. The ToQger think he should shut up.

  • Opposed by: The Grand United Alliance of Law, The House of Time And Space, Thanos, The Unbidden, Gandalf
  • Demon, Monster, Planet Eater, Destroyer, Lord of Chaos. These are but a few titles used to describe one of the most dangerous beings in the entire Multiverse. Unicron. The Chaos-Bringer. Much is known about what this Transformer is capable of, but his origins are the subject of great debate. Some may claim he was constructed by the scientist Primacron, others say he was created by the last Antillan, who wanted revenge on all Cybertron for the death of his people and daughter. But most tend to lean towards Unicron being a living being, existing long before the creation of the Transformers and being the brother and sworn enemy of their creator, Primus. It was their conflict that forged the aspects of good and evil in the Transformers universe; from the creation of The Fallen, to ultimately becoming one of the stepping stones in the Autobot-Decepticon war.
    • Unicron sees all living beings as a personal insult to him, and has made it his goal to completely destroy all existence, consuming everything in his wake. Planets, stars, moons, you name it. So far, he has devoured 22.56% of all universes and after much travelling, he came upon the Pantheon, orbiting high above it in his planetary alternate mode. Luckily for its inhabitants, his brother Primus protects it. To be truthful, the only reason Unicron hasn't destroyed the Pantheon yet is because of his competition with Galactus and the interference of the Imperial Death Star, both of which have been keeping the Chaos Bringer at by with some subtle assistance from Primus himself. They, along with the arrival of the Autobots, Decepticons, and Rebel Alliance, exhausted Unicron's power and forced him back into his planet form, entering a state of hibernation and resulting in cheers of joy throughout the Pantheon...
  • But not everything ended in sunshine and rainbows. While Unicron remains in hibernation... his Heralds took the time to invade the Pantheon. There are seven Heralds altogether; Nemesis Prime, Razorclaw, Ramjet, the trio of Fuzors called Blentrons, and the infamous thirteenth Prime known simply as The Fallen. All have been working to sew chaos and dissent in the Pantheon, all while gathering up large supplies of Dark Energon and Angolmois Energy to reenergize their master. They're also ridiculously powerful, and even the most skilled Gods have a difficult time fighting them.
  • From time to time, Unicron will regain enough energy to transform. When that happens, he and Galactus will compete once a week, every week, for the position of God of Planet Eaters. The winner takes the title, the loser gets eaten. They only stopped long enough to bitchslap the Beast Planet for being a pretentious wannabe. In case you're all wondering, Unicron cuts and Galactus serves.
    • It's been rumored that the two of them are due for a DEATH BATTLE!, though Wiz and Boomstick have kept quiet about when it will occur. Whenever it happens, nobody will be safe, though Silver Surfer has been trying to keep the pair in line, having been a former Herald to Galactus before realizing the error of his ways and switching sides.
  • Though he has mostly been inactive, when Unicron does get enough energy to attack the Pantheon, everyone becomes involved. Grudges are put aside, enemies turn into allies, and even Cosmos and Melkor will put aside their differences to take down the Chaos-Bringer with their allies. Unfortunately, Nekron caught on, and brought Unicron in as one of his Ring Overlords. The alliance has been a bit tedious, especially with Zamasu wanting the honour to wipe out the multiverse to himself. He's still found fellow deities who share his interests to wipe out all existence, such as Dharkon, Gigyas, and the Shadow Monster.
  • Should anyone make it inside Unicron, they will be greeted by a truly horrifying sight. Hidden within the Chaos-Bringer's body are his anitbodies, hideous creatures comprised of the mashed up remains of Unicron's devoured victims and worlds. They act as his "immune system", protecting their master from any outside threats. This has given AM plenty of subjects to experiment on, and has even installed a portion of himself into Unicron's body to torture new victims that have been consumed.
  • Although the original Galvatron was created from a reformatted Megatron by Unicron, the Decepticon leader has renounced ever being associated by the Planet Eater... except when he does become Galvatron, and is forced to become his Herald once more.
    • Interestingly, it was Starscream of all Decepticons who tricked Unicron when the pair worked together to get revenge on Galvatron and the Autobots. The Chaos Bringer has not forgotten what the Seeker did, nor has he forgiven.
  • The Guardians of the Galaxy, especially Star-Lord, have become enemies of Unicron, whose planet form reminded them too much of Star-Lord's father Ego, and even teamed up with Thanos himself to curb the efforts of the Heralds. Thanos may not like it, but what good would his perfect universe be if everyone was killed off?
  • Unicron is locked in an eternal stalemate with the Death Star, with the Planet Eater trying to devour the battle station and it fighting back with its super-laser. They draw apart for brief periods to create the tides, cause eclipses, and fool around with other gods. Looking to find a way to drain Unicron of his energy, the Imperials re-engineered the Death Star, coverting it into a Transforming Mecha bearing a striking resemblance to Darth Vader. The two duked it out for a time before both were so drained of energy they reverted back to their alt modes... where they continued their old duel once more.
    • From time to time, the Jedi and Rebel Alliance will make a truce with their Imperial enemies to sabotage the efforts of the Heralds trying to restore Unicron to his full power, though that has been met with minimal success.
  • Thanks to his habit of devouring whole planets, Unicron has gained an enemy in the form of Mogo, a powerful Green Lantern and member of the Pantheon's Nature Preservers. Anytime the Chaos Bringer tries to take a bite of him, Mogo simply blasts back using his Lantern powers, turning the skies above the Pantheon a brilliant emerald. Unicron has also gained the ire of SCP-1548 after trying to eat it. The evil sun didn't appreciate the attempt. On that topic, the C-Tan's habit of poisoning and eating stars certainly caught Unicron's attention, and has since declared them to be rivals in his conquest of destruction.
  • Massively disappointed in his IDW incarnation for being nothing more than a mindless Weapon of Mass Destruction controlled by the spirit of a dead scientist. Despite that incarnation's power and success in destroying Cybertron, Unicron does not take it kindly to being reduced to a supporting character to prop up someone else's story. He vastly prefers his animated incarnations because they actually live up to his reputation as a malevolent cosmic god.
  • The Unbidden don't like him one bit. Being energy-based organisms who seek to devour sapient life they, like with the rest of the GUAD, can summarize their plans as tossing all the buffet food into the dumpster. Still, they don't view the Chaos-Bringer as an enemy. That honour belongs to The Sleeper. Being a comet which in truth had a eldritch abomination living within it, The Sleeper sees Unicron as a threat to its very existence. As a result, it stays as far away as possible but one day, when it breaks free of its rocky prison, it will encounter beings such as Unicron and do battle with it.
    • The King Of All Cosmos became an enemy to Unicron after discovering the Chaos-Bringer eating the planets he, his son, and his son's cousin have made. As a result, he plans to one day creating a big enough Katamari to roll Unicron into and turn him into a harmless planet... progress has been slow though.
  • Unfortunately, the Pantheon's deities came across a truly horrible realization; Unicron cannot be destroyed permanently. They can blow up his physical body yes, reduce him to a head orbiting the planet, it doesn't matter. He will survive in another part of the multiverse, ready to continue his quest to end all of existence, even going so far as becoming a black hole.
"Destiny... you cannot destroy my... Destiny!"

  • In 2015, a plague known as the Kalavirus is unleashed and spread across the world, killing 98% of the human population and the survivors being defaulted to fending for themselves in the wild and against each other for resources and territories. Amongst all this, reveals a shadowy organization that apparently takes responsibility for the plague; The Army of the 12 Monkeys, led by an enigmatic individual in the future known only as "The Witness". They found immediate opposition under an organization known as Project Splinter, whose chief scientist, Dr. Katarina Jones, created a time machine for the sole purpose of stopping the plague from ever happening and selecting James Cole to personally save the world after his name was namedropped by someone named Cassandra Railly. Cole and two notable members, the Pallid Man and The Striking Woman, would repeatedly clash against one another, with the former being responsible for the death of his father in 2015 and the latter grooming his friend, Jose Ramse in working with him. Later on, as Cole and Cassandra were able to delay the release of the Kalavirus from 2015 to 2018 and convincing Jennifer Goines to start fighting for a good cause, the 12 Monkeys revealed that their goals weren't to simply spread a plague; they wanted to destroy the fabric of time and space to initiate a phenomenon known as the "Red Forest" where time is non-existent and the trapped would be able to live with their loved ones forever. They initially intended to accomplish this by going back in time to kill individuals known as Primaries (beings who can see and have a connection with time itself) by stabbing them with a knife made from their future corpses' breast bone. Their base of operations, a city known as Titan, was itself, a time-machine and they possessed technology more advanced than those developed by Project Splinter, being able to create suits that automatically time travel.
    • Despite initial understandings that Cole and Cassie's future son, Athan, was to be The Witness, it was later revealed that the true identity was actually The Striking Woman, Olivia Kirschner, who herself was a genetically engineered human being who was raised in a boxed, isolated space, and was supposedly exiled from the organization, which she paid back by personally killing The Pallid Man. She also killed Athan when he dared to defy and tell her that she would lose. Olivia then took matters into her own hands, hunting down Project Splinter throughout history until she decided to force her daughter, Emma, to power up Titan's full output in an attempt to completely destroy time and force everyone into the Red Forest. Alas, this would not come to pass; Cole was able to round up everyone he knew, plus deceased allies from the past and invade Titan, with Cassandra kicking Olivia into a splintering beam, bisecting her in half and sending Olivia's top-half of her body to Annapurna in 894 AD where she would freeze to death and her body would become the origin of the Kalavirus. Even then, this would be outdone by Jones and Cole as they find a way to send the latter to a timeline where the 12 Monkeys never existed.
  • The Pantheon was able to keep records of the 12 Monkey's existence in the House of Knowledge, but reported signs of the organization were next-to-none, that is, until a group of mysterious beings showed up with a teleporting suit, seeking to collect something in The Great Treasury. However, a band of heroes were able to drive them away, but this left further questions; just who were these people and what were they talking about regarding the future and a Red Forest? The higher-ups in the House of Knowledge immediately raised concern about the situation, the 12 Monkeys may have made an entrance. Further muddying the situation was when someone reported that Olivia's remains were found and were rejuvenated to life. Things became really dire when the Pantheonic Time Police were called upon to investigate, whereupon Olivia declared that her defeat has only steeled her resolve to destroy time and bring up the Red Forest.
  • The Army of the 12 Monkeys is an incredibly elusive and secretive organization. In fact, they were able to travel around the Pantheon without anyone being aware of them and even then, documents of its existence was only sheltered in the House of Knowledge. Even after their presence have been revealed, the 12 Monkeys instead decides to keep themselves isolated as far away as they should. As a result, little is still known about them. Melkor seems annoyed by this as he feels that they would make an incredible asset to the Grand United Alliance of Evil, but their goals of a supposed paradise counter what the God of Evil really wants. Cosmos, Gaea and YHVH don't really have much to say beyond naturally opposing them and Nekron balls at the idea of the Red Forest; life should be obliterated, full stop.
    • However, the 12 Monkeys were able to get into the good graces of Lucifer, simply stating that their goals are to save humanity and to give them a place where time simply won't interrupt with them anymore. Lucifer himself is conflicted on what Olivia and her organization desire, but decided to go along and give them some resources and support out of goodwill. She wants to make sure what Lucifer has given her is put to good use. Many members of the GUAC are conflicted about this; the fact that they killed 7 billion people totally counters what Olivia tends to preach, but her aid can be proven beneficial in the sense that they can be given tertiary technology to travel back in time in case a plan goes awry.
  • To further their reputation as a shadowy organization, many of its members wear a special suit that utilizes advanced splinter technology. As a result, they are able to instantaneously travel through time via a large blue button on their left chest. In the occasion that they fail a mission and relay future information to a past version through direct contact, they would press a smaller orange button to immolate and vaporize themselves into nothing less, to ensure that their past selves succeed where they failed. These soldiers, the top being known as Acolytes, are incredibly dangerous, but not unbeatable. Through clever planning, they can be defeated by quickly pressing their orange buttons to disintegrate them, given that removing the suit requires outside help and a fast reaction. Olivia and the Pallid Man hope to increase their technology to mitigate their suits' weaknesses.
  • One of the reasons for their elusive nature is the simple fact that their city of operations, Titan, happens to be a time travel itself, so one second later, they may be in a different place and time altogether, much to everyone's dismay. That said, the Pantheonic Time Police has made it certain that they won't be going anywhere and it's members, alongside their close allies have made sure that the 12 Monkeys don't travel too much, in addition to being tracked. That said, Olivia claims to have been to the beginning of the Pantheon and know who won the Forever War in the end and who lived and died throughout, though she's not going to say anything further than that.
  • While Project Splinter was not happy in the slightest to see the 12 Monkeys back in the Pantheon, the Pantheonic Time Police has made the situation more fortunate on their side as the 12 Monkeys seem to find themselves getting hounded and chased around the Pantheon and through time by several different heroes. The organization has sent a series of troops into the past to influence specific events in the Pantheon to their advantage covertly. That said, the members of Project Splinter do occasionally combat against the 12 Monkeys, with Cole and Cassie especially having it out on Olivia as she killed their son, Athan, while Olivia is content with having revenge, in addition to disregarding Cole and Cassie from being sent to the Red Forest.
  • They would naturally be enemies with the Time Force Power Rangers due to just how much damage they've caused to the timestream, but it seems Wes Collins is the only one present. He personally pities Olivia as, like Ransik, there were tragic circumstances behind their motivations as villains, but Olivia simply chooses to go ahead with her goal of destroying time, not caring about consequences, unlike Ransik who managed to find redemption after being humbled. As a result, Wes does whatever he can do to oppose the 12 Monkeys and their goals. Sougo Tokiwa is also someone who likes to let destiny follow it's course, but gets why Project Splinter went to avert the fates of 7 billion people and doesn't seem to like the 12 Monkeys for their callousness. Finally, Tsukasa Kadoya had to deal with a Time Crash before in his mortal life and naturally registers the 12 Monkeys as a grave threat because of it.
  • Eobard Thawne once approached the 12 Monkeys in an effort to solidify a partnership between them. He quickly gained attention to the fact that they were time travellers who were bent on destroying an aspect of reality and that may as well jump in for the fun. Olivia was open to accepting Thawne's aid, but it soon becomes clear that their teamwork is hard at best. While the 12 Monkeys are heavily dangerous and feared, they prefer if things are done smoothly and covertly so as to ensure they influence history without too much notice, whereas Thawne is a sadistic madman who wants to cause mayhem and chaos for the hell of it. Thawne personally sees the 12 Monkeys as a men's to an end as Barry Allen is a notable foe for them. That said, Olivia seems to know Thawne doesn't have any loyalty either, but both are deciding to play along for now, even if it's apparent that no one is really trustworthy of one another.
    • Barry himself is vehemently opposed to what the 12 Monkeys stand for and what their goals are. While he understands the overall goal of wanting to be with their loved ones, Barry still calls out the logic that reality and everyone have to be destroyed for something like that to happen, while Olivia and the Pallid Man just see Barry as naive and childish for trying to speak up to him. He retorted that he did try to do something rather similar, but ended up creating a bigger disaster that he had to fix, whereas the 12 Monkeys seek to learn nothing from their past experiences.
  • There is an interesting Irony to consider when there's an organization known as the 12 Monkeys who were responsible for a plague when in in a particular version of another setting, a virus known as the ALZ-112 ended up killing most humans and dismantling civilization whilst also granting primates, monkeys included, with abnormal intelligence. Caesar does not take the similarity kindly as he sees the 12 Monkeys as a vicious and malevolent organization whose title spells disgrace and embarrassment towards apes in general. Koba also returns the sentiment, but only because of his extreme hate towards humankind than anything else. Oddly enough, the 12 Monkeys themselves see Koba as being too much of a hassle to tolerate and deal with.
  • Another partner was Nox, who only desires to be reunited with his family that died indirectly by his decision to pursue the greatest source of Wakfu and ended up being broken up by the fact that all he was able to do with it was rewind time by 20 minutes. The 12 Monkeys, in an attempt to coddle with Nox's desperation, offered him the chance of reuniting with his family, which Nox decided to comply with. That said, Nox himself is a Wild Card; he doesn't care about the Red Forest nor the 12 Monkeys' ultimate goal. To him, they're just a means to find a way to get back to his family. Though he does pity Olivia for being raised in an isolated household, though at the same times, he chastises her for being neglectful and abusive towards her daughter, Emma.
  • They also found a partner in Randall Ross, who has a similar goal in destroying time. Unlike the 12 Monkeys and Box, Randall is driven by more selfish and petty matters, namely that he lost a volleyball game. Olivia herself thinks the reason is pathetic but goes along with Randall as he does seem to be a capable asset with a lot of power to justify his threat. Still, Randall is only in it for himself and doesn't care about the Red Forest phenomena. There was also The Vex, a group of mechanical aliens who also were practitioners of time and sought to complete The Pattern, which basically meant terraforming the universe in their own image. Because their goals were similar in a sense, the 12 Monkeys had little issue in working with The Vex, in addition to being potentially given more advanced technology to work with. Olivia hopes that this could be enough to either improve their technology involving time travel and/or strike back harder against their foes.
  • Both the Pallid Man and Olivia spend a lot of their time neck-and-neck against one another, given the fact that the latter killed the former out of revenge for the Pallid Man disregarding and throwing Olivia out of the organization. While he still remains associated with the 12 Monkeys, his relationship with the overall organization has since soured considerably and because of his, he's more likely to be making alliances with other individuals if it means furthering his own goals. As for Olivia, she is determined to make sure that the Pallid Man is kept under surveillance.
  • Darkseid thinks the Red Forest is impractical and just a more "flowery" way of saying that you will be trapped in eternity. That, and he personally thinks the 12 Monkeys run on an end goal that seems non-sensical and would accomplish nothing besides just making yourself happy. Olivia and the Pallid Man counteract by stating that Darkseid desires far worse which is why most deities oppose him. The Lord of Tyranny simply snickered and retorted that the 12 Monkeys aren't any better and what they preach doesn't scream good-intentioned towards everyone else, what with travelling around, ruining the lives of many just to bring about an illusionary concept by destroying time. That, and Darkseid is honest about his ultimate goal.
    • Another reason why Darkseid chose not to work with the 12 Monkeys is because he believes time travel is too much of a detriment and only further increases the chances of flaws and weaknesses in one's plan. He bluntly thinks this is a key reason why the 12 Monkeys lost despite their persistence and keeping themselves connected with time. Olivia thinks the God of Apokolips is being an idiot, but Darkseid thinks she's a fool.
  • Zamasu despises the 12 Monkeys in the same way he expresses this feeling towards Project Splinter; both were equally guilty of the "sin" of time travelling and for using their intelligence to further sunder and spoil a world's beauty. On one hand, Zamasu does raise a point in that the 12 Monkeys really did do considerable damage to the timestream, what with their tampering of events and killing Primaries with knives from their corpses' breast bone. One the other hand, Zamasu is the last person to be calling out others, let alone the 12 Monkeys for committing terrible actions via travelling through time, given how a version of him, Goku Black, took it upon himself to travel to a ruined timeline and lay waste and misery in the guise of "justice". Olivia and the Pallid Man think the Fallen Kai is delusional and find it hilarious that Zamasu fails to see how so much of what he says applies just as much to himself, perhaps even more so.
  • Due to their constant abuse of time travel and is responsible for altering history too much for their own ends, the 12 Monkeys would inevitably attract the attention of The Dahaka, in what can be considered their most persistent enemy outside of the Pantheonic Time Police. Given how The Dahaka hounds and targets those who only use time travel for their own gains and not caring about the damage they cause, it's reasons are justified. Project Splinter themselves could be enemies, but ultimately, since they've joined the Pantheon, they've almost stopped, so it has little use in pursuing them. Olivia seems to be unnerved by The Dahaka's nature and does whatever she can to distance herself and the organization away from it as much as she can... by time-travelling less often than they usually did. That doesn't change the fact that she's hell-bent on her goals though and wishes that it kills The Dahaka one it's initiated.
  • In another version of their story, the 12 Monkeys was ultimately nothing more than an anarchist animal rights organization headed by Jeffrey Goines when the virus itself was actually created by a lab assistant completely separate from the group. Upon hearing of this tale, Olivia felt amused to hear that the very organization that she would head was nothing more than a distraction from the actual stem of the virus, though because of how small-time this was compared to the 12 Monkeys that she leads, she doesn't think much of it.

The Firebird, God of the World-Wrecking Wave
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/The_Firebird_1799.bmp
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A volcanic eruption
  • Theme Song: "The Firebird Suite"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, with emphasis on Chaotic
  • Domain: Fire, Destruction
  • Portfolio: Destroying everything through fire, embodiment of death, destruction and fire, Omnicidal Maniac, Person of Mass Destruction, based on the eruption of Mt. Saint Helen with more lava
  • Allies: Ragnaros the Firelord, Nekron, The Lich, Deathwing, Azula
  • Enemies: The Spring Sprite, the good deities from the House of Nature, especially Alexstrasza and Recca Hanabishi, the ascended cast from Warcraft except for Nefarian, the good and neutral-aligned death gods, especially Jean Grey-Summers and Hope Summers, Zuko
  • Evil Counterpart to: Yveltal
  • His ascension was forever remembered by everyone because it was signalled by a Pantheon wide wave that annihilated every deity with lesser power than the Firebird. Fortunately, his mortal enemy, the Spring Sprite's ascension shortly after came with her own mass regeneration wave that restored the damage from his power.
    • Because of this incident, he was furious that all of his hard work is gone because of her and swore to hunt her down until he can kill her so he can continue his work of destruction.
  • Upon his ascension, he went on a rampage in the House of Nature with an attempt to destroy everything there. His effort was stopped by the good-aligned deities that reside there after a brutal battle and the restoration effort was quickly handled by his mortal enemy the Spring Sprite. This just pissed him off more and he swore revenge.
  • Because of his tremendous power, association with fire and destructive tendency, Ragnaros the Firelord took a liking of him and even offered a position as his majordomo. The Firebird refused, much to the relief of the entire Pantheon, because he doesn't like being tied down to anyone but was flattered at the offer anyway.
    • Through Ragnaros, he was introduced and took a liking to Deathwing. However, Deathwing approached him with caution because he is the embodiment of lava and thus is equally as powerful as him. His alliance with both Deathwing and Ragnaros earned him the scorn of many ascended gods from Warcraft, except for Deathwing's son Nefarian.
    • This alliance also led to Kael'thas Sunstrider learned of the Firebird's existence and the elf is curious if he can summon the Firebird as his servant similar to the summoning of his pet phoenix A'lar. However, Kael'thas isn't particularly keen on finding out considering the Firebird's destructive capacity after awakening.
  • He isn't well-liked among the House of Life and Death as many good and neutral-aligned gods from this place consider his methods excessive. This is especially intense with Jean Grey-Summers (and to an extent Hope Summers) because her power is represented through a firebird Phoenix.
  • He is really disliked by Zuko, because the Firebird represents the more destructive usage of fire, embodies one of the worst aspects of the Fire Nation, and his method is too similar to Zuko's father Ozai, all of which Zuko desperately swore to avoid in his rule of the kingdom. However, these qualities are exactly why Azula took a liking to the Firebird, along with their shared alliance with Ragnaros.
  • Get along very well with Nekros and the Lich because of their shared enjoyment of not only destruction but also snuff out any possibility that life might return to the area they destroyed.
  • Despite both of them being both bird-shaped creatures with the ability to destroy things with fire, Yveltal and the Firebird hold nothing but contempt to one another. Yveltal is disgusted with the Firebird's excessive destruction for no real reason and actively hunting the Spring Sprite after his awakening, which therefore can end the potential of life returning to that area. The Firebird doesn't like the fact that Yveltal allied itself with his mortal enemy.

  • Opposed By (Pestilence and War only): Caesar
  • Conflicted Opinion: Apocalypse
  • The day the Horsemen rode into the Pantheon, the Pantheon went into chaos. Deities started quarrelling with each other, giving in to their inhibitions, greed, and lust and became afflicted with numerous diseases. Meanwhile, Death was found not reaping souls, but rather consuming pizza in the House of Food. It took the combined efforts of the Winchesters, Castiel, Crowley, and Bobby Singer to put a stop to all of the chaos and disaster brought upon the Pantheon.
  • While Sam and Dean are still on good terms with Death, he is still rather annoyed at how Dean killed him with his own scythe, even if handing to Dean wasn't the smartest idea. Death also has a good relationship with most other Death-related entities, namely Death of the Endless, who jokingly calls him "Uncle Death" due to his aged appearance. And while Death isnít necessarily enemies with Castiel and Crowley, the two of them have gotten on his nerves more than once, namely with opening Purgatory and inadvertently releasing the Leviathans.
  • They all have a low opinion of the Lucifer of their universe, considering him to be nothing more than a Spoiled Brat throwing a temper tantrum, and while they think of the other Lucifer of the Pantheon as being leagues better than the Lucifer they've worked with, his overall goals and interest in humanity put him at odds with War, Famine, and Pestilence. Death, on the other hand, has an affable relationship with that Lucifer, although he's a bit baffled by his interest in humanity.
  • That being said, they are also opposed to YHVH, as a result of him being opposed to everything they stand for, at least by War, Famine, and Pestilence's standards. Death, on the other hand, considers him to be a straight-up Jerkass, as opposed to the easygoing and normally friendly Chuck Shurley AKA their universe's God.
  • Ridley, SCP-682, and Voldemort annoy Death, the former two due to being one of the few things in existence even he can't possibly kill, while the latter's disruption of the natural order and usage of Horcruxes to keep himself alive angers Death immensely, to the point where when Voldemort died in his own universe, Death ordered all reapers to not help him reassemble his soul, and leave him in his current state for all eternity.
  • Harry Potter, on the other hand, has earned Death's respect for his acceptance of Death and realizing that there are fates more horrifying than Death, and as such, considers Harry to be worthy enough for the title of "Master of Death". He also pities Captain Jack Harkness, since Jack never asked for his immortality in the first place, and when Death tried to remove it, he failed, since it was given to Jack by an entity of a caliber equal to Death.
  • It should also be mentioned that SCP-682 is the only entity they as a group all collectively fear, due to its omnicidal nature and desires being too much, even by their standards. Just a reminder that War, Famine, and Pestilence are the Anthropomorphic Personifications of their names, existing as a manifestation of humanity's fears and sins, and even they consider SCP-682 to be too much. Death, on the other hand, is shocked at how everything that has been thrown at SCP-682 was unable to kill it, which also annoys him to no end.
  • After Dean Winchester shed Death of his mortal coil with the latter's own scythe, Death has refused to let anyone aside from Death of the Endless and Discworld's Death touch his scythe, the only thing in existence that can kill him. And even then it took them some time to earn Death's trust in regards to his scythe.
  • Pestilence has been shown to have a strange friendship to Nurgle as he finds the treatments to his followers, as well as his gift of disease to others something that they have in common. He has been quoted about their friendship:
    "Disease gets a bad rap, don't you think? For being filthy. Chaotic. Uh, but, really, that just describes people who get sick. Disease itself... Very... Pure... Single-minded. Bacteria have one purpose — divide and conquer. That's why, in the end... It always wins."
  • Pestilence has been found to be fascinated by The Flood, being unlike any disease he's ever seen. There are few things he wouldn't give to study living specimens (since the Pantheon consistently undergoes decontamination periods), but he still sees his own free will as of more priority than control and potential infection.
  • Along with the Croatoan virus, Pestilence is trying to gain control of other viruses and diseases to test out and combine, like many of Umbrella's Viruses (T/G/T-G/Veronica/C/T-Abyss), Captain Trips, The Black Light Virus, Uroboros, Grey Death, Rage Virus, Hinamizawa Syndrome (in his words, "one of his favorites"), and Simian Flu. His desire to gain control of the Simian Flu has put him at odds with Caesar, who has witnessed firsthand what happens to those affected by it. Pestilence, in response to Caesar, mentioned said that he and War are "big fans" of what unfolded in Caesar's reality.
  • Flynn takes... a serious issue with Famine. It began when the Black Rider, Famine's equivalent among the Fiends, decided to start off their battle with FIVE WASTREL BEAMS, reducing Flynn's money by roughly 95%. The Samurai was about as far from 'happy' as one could possibly be=: upon meeting Famine, Flynn threw down his weapons and attempted to beat the Horseman to death with his bare hands. He failed when War and Pestilence intervened: he succeeded in mugging them and held them both off at once before Death stopped the fight entirely, but by that time Famine had escaped in the confusion. Famine makes it a point to be as far away as possible whenever Flynn is in the vicinity. He later had to purchase his ring and wheelchair back from Recette's shop, much to his chagrin and has given up entirely on recovering the cash he lost in the scuffle.
  • Famine often shows that he is capable of reading the soul of a person by touching them and know what state it is in (For example, Dean's soul is empty, which is why his powers don't work on Dean, as there is no way to fill the hole in his soul, regardless of what Dean does). But despite his power, Famine is not unstoppable. His immunity to demonic magic can be bypassed by targeting the souls he swallows; he found this out the hard way when Sam Winchester nuked him from the inside out, and again when Madoka made a Soul Gem he was casually sucking on burn white-hot.
  • Besides his brothers, Famine does not care for anything else, seeing them as a food source and nothing more. And with agricultural improvements, he has weakened considerably. This is why after making people ravenous until they die, he has a group of demons collect their souls so that they can bring it back to him for dinner, which is usually contained in a briefcase.
  • War laughs off others attempts to kill him when they discover his ruse, telling them, "C'mon, kids, you can't beat War". He is wary of the Winchesters and Castiel, however, and even more so of other Gods and deities like the Demi-Fiend, Raidou, or Flynn, who HAVE indeed destroyed his equivalent in the Fiends, the Red Rider (and in the case of Flynn, fought and defeated all four Horsemen AT ONCE.)
  • War likes to hang around Khorne when he is not busy making others kill each other. Sees Khorne as an overexcited brother and a great helper in showing that humans only need little support from Khorne or himself to begin killing each other. He also finds himself being friendly with Sundowner, as he sees that this human was one of the best examples of his views on humanity, and agrees with wanting people to give War a chance. And he admires Millennium, owning a videotape of The Major's War Speech; he views the whole thing as a masterpiece of what War is actually about.
  • War will often disguise himself as a harmless human victim when causing others to fight each other. If someone discovers his true nature, all he has to do is create another illusion, and throw them to the dogs. All while sporting a Psychotic Smirk on his face, which disappears as soon as he starts playing the victim.

  • The Icon of Sin is an extremely massive, powerful and chaotic demon created for only one purpose. To drag the world and eventually the entire universe into Hell. It manifested again through a ritual, taking control of the Betrayerís son and using him as a host. However, it was unable to accomplish its mission of dragging everything into Hell because of the Doom Slayerís interference.
  • Arrived to the Pantheon one day when a few deities in the Hall of Demons, lead by Malebolgia, decided to summon the Icon of Sin. However, the Doom Slayer saw this coming and came to intercept them, but the ritual was completed and the Icon of Sin was summoned into the Pantheon, where one of the deities, Malebolgia, decided to fight him. What followed was multiple demons trying to hold the Doom Slayer off from stopping Malebolgiaís plan before it started with The Violator, his superior and the forces of Hell leading the charge against him while the Icon of Sin started to rampage across the Pantheon.
    • Its rampage immediately got the attention of Demon Slayers such as Spawn and Dante Sparda who soon arrived to put a stop to it. However, the Icon of Sin was able to leave through a portal to reach its next destination, attacking them by summoning meteors to prevent them from following. The Icon of Sin appeared in the Hall of Dragons, where a visiting Bowser Junior was nearly killed by it like some of the deities residing there had almost been due to falling debris, fire and energy beams, pissing off his father something fierce. Bowser turned giant and punched the Icon of Sin straight out of the Hall of Dragons before exiting himself to continue fighting against it.
    • The fight got even more heated later when a good punch from Bowser sent the Icon of Sin right into the House of Ambiguity, where Ragna the Bloodedge and Guts decided to help Bowser out in defeating this foe. They were successful in finishing it off, ironically just as the Doom Slayer finished battling Malebolgia, The Violator and the forces of Hell.
    • In the end, many other Demon Slayers such as Sparda, Vergil and Nero were appalled to learn such a thing happened. When asked where they were when its summoning occurred, they replied by saying that HIM and The Beast decided to try their hand at raiding the Treasury...coincidentally 30 minutes before said summoning. Malebolgia snickered at this, proclaiming that this was nothing but a distraction to ensure that the Icon of Sinís summoning likely wouldnít be interrupted.
  • The Khan Maykr didnít know what to think of the Icon of Sinís ascension. On one hand, the Icon of Sin has plenty of power that could be useful, but on the other, her botched summoning of it due to the Doom Slayerís interference lead to her being unable to control it. The beast became a major reason why her plans failed because of this. She does plan to have plenty of contingencies in place if she ever wants to summon and try to control it once more so that the ritual would not be interrupted like before.
  • Its ability to drag its surroundings into Hell has it being sought out by the Death Busters with hopes of summoning Pharaoh 90. To do this, they want to use it as a battery and make it so that it drags its surroundings into the Tau Nebula rather than Hell. The Sailor Guardians have been trying to prevent this from ever coming to pass. In a similar vein to the Death Busters, Tabuu also desires to control it. He wants to make it so that it drags its surroundings into Subspace instead of Hell. Of course, he knows heíll likely have to get his armies to lure it in and defeat the Icon of Sin himself, but this hasnít deterred him in the slightest.
  • Lucifer considered employing it as a brute for the Grand United Alliance of Chaos, but this idea quickly fell apart when it laid waste to the entirety of an area some of his demons happened to be in hours after he spoke with it, during a battle against the Grand United Alliance of Law no less. Enraged, some of Luciferís demons attacked it, only to be swiftly defeated and killed. Lucifer has since decided to abort that plan once he learned that the Icon of Sinís actions caused YHVHís forces to win said battle. Unsurprisingly, YHVH sees the Icon of Sin as an enemy for fairly obvious reasons.
    • A few of Luciferís demons were later found near the House of Nature by Samus Aran, who came to a disturbing conclusion. They had been infected with Phazon. Finishing the job the Icon of Sin started, she fought back against them when they attacked her to prevent it from spreading, eventually killing the infected Demons. Once they were brought back to life, they revealed that the Icon of Sin had created a portal and punched them through it. They ended up on the Planet Phaaze, where Dark Samus and the Phazon quickly overwhelmed and infected them. They really want revenge on the Icon of Sin for doing this, though none know if it actually intended to get them infected with Phazon.
  • Once got into a fight with Godzilla which nearly destroyed a good chunk of Houses and Halls and deities had to come in and pull them apart before things got worse. People like Hades found it hilarious and didnít do anything but watch, while the two Kaiju attempted to tear each other apart. Things only got worse when King Ghidorah joined the fight and tried to target Godzilla while he was busy with the Icon of Sin. This forced the Grand United Alliances, Law, Chaos and Evil included (Except for Destruction, who liked the carnage) to step in and end the fight with extreme force.
  • The Lich sometimes watches the Icon of Sin and the destruction it brings, plotting to either possess it to obtain more power in his quest to destroy all life or he might want to forcibly control it into joining the ranks of the GUAD. Neither option is good. Death Phantom is also interested in brainwashing it into serving him as well as the GUAD, which is something particularly worrying as him pulling this off isnít that farfetched of a possibility.
  • Out of all demons that have faced the Doom Slayer in its universe, the Icon of Sin is one of the only two demons, with Davoth the Dark Lord being the other, that doesnít fear him. Other Demon Slayers havenít had any luck in trying to make it fear them, but they only care about destroying and stopping it before it becomes far too powerful to be defeated anyway, lest the Pantheon be dragged into Hell.
  • The Starmen once approached it in Hell with an offer; Help their Master Giygas lay waste to the Pantheon and in turn theyíll allow it to drag the remains into Hell. To the surprise of many, mainly Lucifer, it actually accepted, though by nodding its head as it knows they wouldnít be able to understand its foreign language. Occasionally, Starmen can be seen in Hell, and this only adds another target for the Doom Slayer to unleash his wrath on, though they arenít worried due to him not having any real way to threaten their Master.
  • Rachel Roth, Satan Jacob and Sparda arenít taking any chances with it, as it can not only summon Demons but also absorb their energy. While it can absorb the energy of Demons completely, as it would learn in an encounter with the aforementioned Raven, it can only absorb some of her energy due to her only being Part-Demon rather than a full one, which still leaves her with quite a bit left for her to fight back. At that moment help arrived and worked with her to defeat the Icon of Sin and send it through a portal and back into Hell.

  • The slaughterer of the Uchiha clan, Itachi Uchiha is perhaps one of the greatest ninjas that the Land of Fire has ever produced, becoming an ANBU agent in his early teens. Being the prodigal son of the Uchiha head, Itachi's future was looking quite bright until he was torn to pick a side between his nation and his rebelling family. Though he desired peace more than anything, his best friend killed himself to have Itachi awaken his Mangekyo Sharingan out of despair, to which then Itachi moved to kill his entire clan. Being aided by a person Itachi thought to be the living Madara Uchiha, Itachi succeeded in killing every other Uchiha and instilled a drive for vengeance in his spared brother. The reason for saving Sasuke is not born out of love solely, it was also Itachi's hope that one day, Sasuke will kill him to take his eyes for the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan. Sasuke would then return to Konoha as a hero for killing the Clan Killer Itachi and assassinating the Akatsuki's true leader. Being cast out of his village for his heinous crimes, Itachi was given the new mission to infiltrate the Akatsuki as one of its premier members to protect his village even if being a terrorist was counter to his beliefs. He made genuine friendships as an Akatsuki while investigating the organizationís true leadership, though met the fate he always intended: killed by his younger brother who took his eyes. What threw a wrench into Itachi's agenda was "Madara Uchiha" telling Sasuke the truth of his actions (something that Itachi predicated was a possibility) and Orochimaru taking Sasuke as a pupil, driving his brother with hatred and vengeance in his heart against the village who wronged their clan. Itachi came back as part of Obito Uchihaís army after his death, where he and his brother finally found solace after learning that Sasuke came to learn of his true actions. In the Pantheon now, Itachi came back not as an Edo Tensei but as a restored human for a specific purpose.
    Sasuke: Why are you here? To measure your abilities?
    Itachi: Naruto asked me to. He is the Hokage, so I cannot deny his requests.
    Sasuke: Brother, you're dead. You don't have to follow that blonde moron.
    Itachi: To be quite frank, little brother, it is a bit awkward to be in the afterlife once you kill your entire clan. The judging glares at you and the looks on children's faces that questioned, "Did you enjoy stabbing me?" It starts wearing your mental fortitude down drastically. I should have been more thankful that being reincarnated meant I had the brief mercy of forgetting those experiences.
    Sasuke: I... could imagine...
    Itachi: Our mother and father told me to say hi to you if that is any consolation.
  • Itachi when it comes to his power, Itachi is way above many shinobi including his own bloodline. He passed the Chunin exams at an incredibly young age, but to reiterate, became an ANBU member. His signature jutsu is the Tsukuyomi, being absurd with how he can have a person experience an entire days-long reality in seconds, rendering anyone he puts under it completely useless and can be affected by those they dream of both mentally and physically. However, Itachi's strength is debilitated by his illness, making his combat capabilities more limited compared to Madara Uchiha, Sasuke Uchiha, and even Obito Uchiha. That said, he still surpassed most other shinobi despite the handicap as Kakashi and Might Guy would attest to as he gave them a rough time when they fought him. Granted, Kisame was there though Itachi was a deadly support unit.
    Sasuke: If I donít get my Rinnegan back, please don't try to give me your other eye.
    Itachi: Wait, you had a what?
  • What does Itachi do now? He still has good connections to some of his old Akatsuki friends, especially Kisame who was his partner. Despite him having joined Obito Uchiha's forces in a heartbeat, Kisame admitted he missed Itachi and both found themselves sticking by each other like the good old days. Well, the murderous good old days but they were good to them. Itachi was one of the few who knew Nagato was Pain, so it was good to see each other again. Also, Itachi is still keeping it zipped up that he was spying on his terrorist organization the entire time. Nagato still does not know, and Itachi wants to keep it like that in case Nagato decides to rebuild the Akatsuki. On the other hand, Deidara still wants to kill Itachi for beating him up in their first meeting. Whatever revenge Deidara wants will probably never come true, in reality, or in the genjutsu that Itachi brings him where he will fail at. Sasori just... does not give a damn about Itachi, unlike his partner. Orochimaru has tried attacking Itachi before, only to find himself defeated almost instantly and Orochimaru declaring that Itachi was stronger than he will ever be. In fact, it could be inferred that Orochimaru's desire for a Sharingan stems from this initial bout with Itachi. Itachi came to beat the lights out of Orochimaru for all that he did to Sasuke and Orochimaru had no resistance during it. If anything, resisting would have made Itachi bring the hurt harder. Not to say Itachi forever despises Orochimaru, but needed to get that out of his system before considering Orochimaru an ally once more.
    • Obito Uchiha and Itachi cooperate with each other, thanks to Narutoís endearing faith in the good of others. Many people would see as having overblown reaction to his childhood friend dying compared, Itachi knows that the ďCurse of HatredĒ that runs in the Uchiha bloodline is a factor to Obitoís lasting vengeance. He could understand and sympathize even though Itachi never fell to his bloodlineís shared flaw. He is the rare Uchiha who never fell to the same curse despite having witnessed war crimes at a young age, killed all of his friends and family, lived in exile from his home, joined a terrorist organization despite being a pacifist, and was dying due to an illness that he cannot be treated for. He cannot judge his brethren for not reaching mental fortitude he has despite feeling it was his duty to have Obito killed for the longest time. If Naruto has faith in Obito, then Itachi does too. But he says that the caveat is Obito must be truly repent for everything he has done much like how he has to carry the deaths of many on his own shoulders. Obito agrees on that sentiment, but inquired if Itachi will kill him if he strays from the path. Itachi said it would be an unfavorable option.
  • Itachi's healthcare is complete asinine. His unofficial employment as a Konoha shinobi means that he cannot get the benefits that they share publicly, so Itachi has to go seek medical treatment secretly in the village. He would ask his sister-in-law for help, as Sakura is a Combat Medic whose skills rival that of professional doctors. Tsunade would go help Itachi too under her former pupilís request though she still has doubts about his character despite being aware it was for the betterment of the village. He exterminated so many Uchiha and killed many more as an Akatsuki member under the orders of the resident Hate Sink Danzo, so anyone would find it fair that she is antsy about Naruto keeping Itachi around. Tsunade did dream under the Infinite Tsukoyomi that if the Nine-Tails were resealed, Itachi's dreaded actions would not come to pass but it still was a dream created from her mind. There is the only reality and unfortunately, the reality is that Itachi's illness is treatable, though Itachi pushing himself and being elusive to be treated makes both Tsunade and Sakura exasperated.
  • Byakuya Kuchiki and Itachi Uchiha have been the poster boys for Aloof Big Brother though it is surprising that Itachi naturally had it for most of his life and had to play up his emotions to goad Sasuke to kill him. Byakuya developed this front, though his haughtier side that he had when he was young pops up again when nobody is looking. Byakuya manifests his former Hot-Blooded personality through precise fighting, though that makes the moments where he freaks out more notable. Nobody will ever let Itachi forget when he plays up his fake sadism and ended up with a facial expression that can be called excessively menacing.
  • Funny Valentine is one of the few who know of Itachi's true nature thanks to an Alternate Universe where his United States and Konoha were at war with each other thanks to Naruto's refusal to allow US companies to mine fossil fuels underneath Konoha during an oil crisis. Funny Valentine in that universe hired the Akatsuki to invade Konoha though all the Akatsuki members were shocked when Itachi began attacking them at an opportune moment. Knowing the Akatsuki will prove to be dangerous, Valentine waited for the fight to cease to pick off the rest. As Naruto stood above Pain who he defeated, Valentine swooped in and introduced Naruto to another Naruto, killing both. Itachi had to admit his role to be accepted as the new Hokage as American forces moved in to occupy their village. With Itachi being so cooperative there, Valentine would think that bringing Itachi to his would be easy if he threatens his home. If Itachi knew this, then he would have gone to Valentine to be shot a billion times in a Tsukoyomi.
  • Anakin Skywalker is a very ruthless person, especially when it refers to his time with The Empire he used to serve as a general. One of Skywalker's greater goals is to dismantle everything that Palpatine holds, using the same brutality that he used as Darth Vader against his former master. He has employed many people to strike against Palpatine's holdings but those of the highest caliber are what he seeks. Despite Itach's infamous reputation, Anakin Skywalker needed to someone who could easily stealth a fortress to find some very sensitive information that would help find Palpatine's remnants quicker. If it were any other situation, he would have done it himself but Anakin Skywalker even as Darth Vader made his presence known, so to not risk losing such leads, Itachi Uchiha was hired to be the document steal. As the Akatsuki made its funds by being Private Military Contractors, it is not unreasonable to assume that many members of the dissolved group are persuadable to take up jobs. Most of them may be terrorists, though Anakin is aware some missions have better chances with those on the less kind side of morality. Why Itachi particular is due to Anakin being intrigued by shinobi when learning Itachi killed many men, women, and children, something that Anakin Skywalker has... some experience with. However, when properly interviewing Itachi on if his past actions would be problematic to this mission, Itachi stated his clan's deaths by his hands do not matter to him any longer. At a brief moment, Anakin heard Itachi's voice hesitate slightly before delivering that statement. Assuming that Itachi's character may be more than what his popularity states, Anakin trusted Itachi with the mission. When returning from said mission, Anakin noted that Itachi did not only get the information successfully without being seen, but also did not kill anyone even when he easily could have. For this reason, the Skywalker goes to Itachi when it comes to delicate jobs as he wants to see Itachi's character unravel further as he watches him with closer eyes.
  • Itachi is one of the few the Marked Ninja allowed to live after seeing his face. The two encountered each other, doing different missions at the same place. Thinking that one was an assassin sent for the other, the two began to duel. Itachi was impressed as even though he was objectively more powerful, that ninja kept up so well that Itachi had to use his Sharingan's basic ability to track movements. Itachi even tried using a genjustsu to end the fight, but the Marked Ninja recognized that he should not look directly at Itachi when fighting. It was only when their noise brought attention was when they realized that neither was an enemy, then both scrambled to a new hiding spot together. Both were bemused by the situation, though separated on good terms with trails of blood dragging behind them. Itachi began to wonder how disastrous that battle would have been if the Marked Ninja could utilize jutsus.
  • The latter Doctors have struggled over their then-perceived genocide of people by their own hand much as Itachi had. Except the Doctor learned that the Time Lords never die and were instead saved by them via the usual temporal mechanical stuff. So having traveled in time to witness the Uchiha clan being slaughtered and seeing Itachi's heartbreak at the end, the Doctor knows the weight that he carries except he had to be undeniably intimate with the slaughter of his people. That guilt still lingers now that the Master has seemingly killed the Time Lords that the Doctor abandoned, so Itachi and the Doctor share mutual relativity with each other over this. That does not stop the Doctor from not liking Itachi along the same lines since he is technically a soldier, a grown Child Soldier at that who has bathed in blood. The Doctor cannot stand for that no matter how hypocritical it sounds.
  • Kamen Rider Ouja made Itachi wonder if it was Orochimaru underneath that suit. There was just an air of antagonism that emanated from Takeshi Asakura similar to Orochimaru instantly made Itachi cautious. Realizing that there was similar killing intent from the shinobi, Ouja attacked. Itachi was surprised at how speedy and vicious Ouja's attacks were but with one glare, Ouja found himself crucified on a cross and getting stabbed repeatedly by Itachi for seemingly an entire day. When he woke up, he was on the floor, freaking out at what just happened when to Itachi, little time has passed. Asukara swore that he would take revenge on Itachi for such a humiliating defeat. Itachi was just surprised this snake-man was still sane enough to declare that.
  • Corvids seem to have an attachment to Itachi despite him not particularly caring for them. He may have crows repeatedly come out of his body; they are more tools for him to utilize than to properly care for. He had one crow stuffed inside of Naruto and then burned it to ashes almost immediately afterward. The crow does not care for this and still finds themselves following Itachi, although they all have the feeling that one day, Itachi might grab one of them as a distraction and then also turn them to ashes. Of course, that is not to say that crows are exclusively seen as disposable if Itachi deems it...
    Kisame: Good thing that you won't set me on fire to kill an enemy! Right, Itachi?
    Itachi: ...
    Kisame: Oh come on! Don't scare me like that.
    Itachi: Of course, I won't discard you. You are more physically capable than I am, so it would be a waste.
    Kisame: Youíre laughing this up, arenít you?
    Itachi: Absolutely.
  • The Masters of Spinjutsu find Itachi appalling based on his reputation as the killer of his people. Obviously, this reputation of him as a monstrous murderer is deliberate even though it is all true on paper. Rumors began flying that Itachi was not that terrible of a person, as he did not do anything terrible once he ascended. In fact, he is a rather polite person once people get to know him. Seeing as this would just complicate his current underground life, Itachi felt it was necessary to streamline his reputation. Attacking the beloved Masters of Spinjutsu was going to bring his desired outcome, but the Uchiha did not expect to take that much pain from these LEGO figures. He got what he wanted out of it, which was all that mattered after a hasty retreat by spewing out a distracting fireball. Kai managed to replicate Itachiís fireball jutsu after said battle and was surprised that he nearly nuked a forest in the process. This let the Spinjutsu Masters know that Itachi held back his powers in their fight as he could have used the Amaterasu to add to the fireball, which made them both grateful and tense. Itachi came up with a much better plan making himself a villain by murdering Kakashi publicly, showing that he can go that far even against a Hokage, driving it further by yanking out Kakashiís eye slowly for all to witness. There wasn't even a Sharingan left, Itachi just felt that his evilness would be driven further if he did that. If ďDeath Is Cheap syndromeĒ was not a thing, Itachi would never request something this extreme to a former ANBU coworker as bloodshed is something that Itachi avoids spilling. Kakashi told Itachi that he owes him the Erotic Literature of his choosing for that.
  • Infinite and Itachi shared the power of bringing forth illusions, though it is clear that Infinite has a greater effect on the world around himself from the Phantom Ruby's influence. Seeing how dangerous the Phantom Ruby was, Itachi confronted Infinite with the intent to take it from him. Infinite threw so many constructs at Itachi though was taken aback by how quick Itachi was at reacting to them, before finding that his and Itachi's eyes were locked. The Tsukuyomi that Itachi sent to Infinite was not a pleasant one... finding yourself squished by a gigantic moon would be anything but that. Waking up, Infinite saw that Itachi had the Phantom Ruby in his hands, testing out its capabilities by creating a virtual reality around himself with skills that surpassed Infinite's capabilities with it. Itachi then created a portal and tossed the Phantom Ruby in, not wanting its influence to threaten others. Of course, Infinite dove after it before it closed and after a long time, returned to the Pantheon with it. He wants Itachi dead for what he did though is also afraid of what Itachi may do if he does.
  • Martian Manhunter was initially untrusting Itachi due to his reputation as a mass murderer though when reading the young man's mind, Martian Manhunter learned of Itachi's true nature and decided to trust the shinobi for good, knowing that his sacrifices are always for the greater good. The reason why J'onn J'onzz found Itachi's story to be striking such a cord is that J'onn J'onzz's younger killed not just his family but his entire race and was so much less apologetic for it than Itachi is.
    Itachi: Did you see the part where I dragged my cousins out of the closet after killing their parents-
  • Itachi Uchiha sees Donquixote Doflamingo as a bit of an Evil Counterpart to himself with both being born into families of high standing only to be cast out. For Itachi, he was cast out for killing his family who would have become pariahs if their rebellion became widely known while Doflamingo's outcasted due to his parents choosing to leave their worshipped brethren. Both of their families paid with their choices with Itachi forced to kill nearly every relative he had and Doflamingo's parents being killed. Their differences lie in the nobility of their reactions. Itachi was still loyal to Konoha until the very end as Doflamingo hated his parents for leaving, murdering his loving father in his rage. Itachi could have gone against those who caused his misfortunes but chose not to, as Doflamingo plots to bring the downfall of his former spiteful people. Itachi placed a façade of sadism and by contrast, Doflamingo embraces it with no hesitation. Itachi desires peace above all else while Doflamingo relishes warfare. These differences are unreconcilable and led to a direct confrontation between the two. It only went as far as Doflamingo showing off that his power was superior by emitting Conqueror's Haki. Itachi though simply gave a Death Glare at the pirate. Doflamingo mistakenly thought Itachi too had Conqueror's Haki (it wouldn't be surprising if Itachi actually did) and grumpily booked it, realizing he underestimated the ninja.
  • Netero has heard hushed whispers of Itachi having the greatest qualities of a leader (Hokage to be exact) due to his unwaveringness to protect his nation. Wanting to see if the young man had such willpower, Netero went test Itachi in the best way he could. By attacking him. Itachi dodged all of Netero's attacks, but the martial artist held back, increasing the power behind his blows to match Itachi's speed. Seeing as Itachi was avoiding conflict, Netero boisterously yelled out he would begin attacking others if Itachi did not fight. Without hesitation, Itachi went to attack Netero, catching the old man off his guard by how quick he was. When Itachi was about to send a blow meant to seriously harm, Netero just said, "Just kidding, my yelling was a joke," before ditching the scene. Itachi was left stunned and confused, before realizing this is probably what everyone feels whenever he runs away. Netero was satisfied knowing what made Itachi showcase an admirable quality a leader of a nation should have.
  • When it comes to brotherly rivalries, Dante Sparda and Nero Sparda are one of the more notable ones. Itachi and Sasuke would have been in a similar boat if it were not for the latter realizing he was being duped by his brother the entire time. There is a certain loathing that Itachi has for Vergil, believing that his search for strength only brings unnecessary conflict. The shinobi should know as he pretended to be like a more psychotic Vergil for years. It got to the point that Itachi goads Dante to kill Vergil. Though Dante completely understands that sentiment more than anybody, he will not. Itachi is disappointed and is just waiting for the moment to use his abilities to have the two brothers end their long fight. It obviously involves one of Itachi's signature genjutsus but how exactly is a terrifying thought.
  • Itachi could only hold sympathy for the tragic twins, Lucas and Claus. Forced away from each other and forced to fight out of tragedy, this is even worse than the tribulations the Uchiha brothers have faced. Feeling that he should do something that he was unable to do as a brother, Itachi swore that he would do his best to fix the issue... by asking if they would like to be placed in a genjutsu where nothing in their lives went wrong. The twins firmly rejected that solution, saying that it would probably be more traumatizing when they woke up. After realizing the implications of his solution offered for a second, Itachi swiftly agreed.
  • Having the public identity of a terrorist thanks to being an Akatsuki, Itachi was approached by some... less than desirable figures who wanted to hire him as if he were a common mercenary. He rejected all offers though there was one offer that was an interesting interaction for him. That would be with the cyborg ninja Gray Fox who asked if Itachi has any principles at all aside from getting stronger. Itachi's true alliances are for peace, though kept his facade of being a murderer, lying by saying that everything for him is a means to an end. Gray Fox who prides himself in believing something higher, told Itachi that it is a shame that one as selfish as him cannot join Outer Heaven and would only be a danger to it. Gray Fox moved swiftly to take Itachi's hand off though Itachi moved out of the way before then. Plus, Gray Fox attacked the wrong arm as it was the one Itachi always pocketed as if it was on a cast. He just simply left the soldier there to be disappointed at the results when he could have made his escape easier with a genjutsu.
    Itachi: This dream of Outer Heaven is admirable, but the blood of my hands means I cannot be with others to find peace for myself.
  • Itachi went to see Doc Scratch when learning that the being was an almighty god who could see everything and likely knew Itachi's secrets. Doc Scratch told Itachi that he knew he would come that day, and the exact question that Itachi had. Doc Scratch's premeditated answer was that he knows Itachi is not a heartless killer at all and does not plan to go around telling people that fact. Doc Scratch has many Unwitting Pawns and Itachi is just not one of them. He outright said to Itachi that it did not matter if he believed him or not, as it was not as if Itachi could touch Doc Scratch. Though Doc Scratch correctly assumed Itachi had another question to give. Itachio asked if he could have prevented the knowledgeable being if he could have prevented his village and his clan going into conflict. Being blunt, Doc Scratch said there were endless actions Itachi could have taken that would not resulted in him picking a side then and admittedly, many of them need some hindsight. Shisui could have been sacrificed, resulting in Itachi brainwashing key figures to prevent a war happening. He could have had the Ten-Tails awakened so that he can create a scenario where the government must give the Uchihas more power thanks to public pressure. Or he could have gone off the dead end and killed the heads of the government and the Uchiha, resulting in him taking over as new Hokage. These all sound like things Itachi would never do, which Doc Scratch said is redundant since nothing will change even with accurate hypotheses. All that Doc Scratch wants to see is what Itachi could do now, and whether Itachi will grow to be a pawn is what he cannot say. Knowing that staying closer to Doc Scratch puts him in more danger of being part of some inane plot, Itachi left.
  • Trafalgar Law stumbled upon a collapsed Itachi whose illness decided to attack him as he was in the outdoors, away from civilization. Law knew who Itachi was and knew he was in great danger by just being there, but his moral obligations as a doctor prevented him from abandoning Itachi there. He dragged Itachi to a safe place and treated his illness, not knowing exactly what it was though knowing how to calm his nerves from making it worse. When Itachi woke up, Law was there, sword at hand ready at Itachi if he made any moves. Law had the confidence to threaten a deadly assassin after awakening his Devil Fruit powers. He questioned Itachi what exactly his illness as Law supplies on him that could at least put his pain to pause. Itachi had no choice but to describe to Law his illness as best he could, with Law giving the corresponding medicine. Law said that he would normally not go near someone like but being a formerly ill person himself, he could not stand by watching another sickness make someone else suffer. It was not as if Law himself could complain about Itachi's murderous tendencies, as he once took out hearts of over a hundred pirates himself. Itachi would be grateful to Law for his help, even if Law told him to buzz off when he departed.
  • Lelouch and Itachi find themselves sharing the ideals of bringing peace away from conflict and tyranny, even if they have to use extremely violent methods to do so. For both, violent methods are usually the given answer. Itachi may not have hypnotized as many people as Lelouch has, but his largest endeavor in that department was his backup plan of brainwashing Sasuke in case he ever went psychopathic. He may have found the option monstrous, the Uchiha bloodline is infamous for a reason. Along the same lines, Itachi had to say that he did not regard Lelouch's father highly as his plan was similar to Madara's in uniting the world, except it would have been uniting the living and dead together. Lelouch told Itachi that he did not find his father highly either, so they could freely talk badly about him.
  • Ryu Hayabusa is a person that Itachi avoids consistently, as Itachi almost died in their last encounter. Seeing as how his clan was similarly slaughtered, Ryu felt that it was necessary to completely obliterate a person like Itachi. Despite knowing that Hayabusa was a dangerous person, Itachi thought he could handle him. He could not. That True Dragon Sword made Ryu Hayabusa too fast for Itachi to track, making it a rare moment that Itachi wished for Kisame to be around at that moment. He managed to have eye contact with Ryu, placing the ninja under the Tsukoyomi as Itachi made the fastest getaway he has ever done. Kasumi and Ayane found Ryu later and snapped him out of that dream he was forced to suffer for minutes. When waking up, Ryu had to swear to both with all the Tranquil Fury that he would end Itachi. That nightmare Itachi inadvertently sent him were memories of Itachi killing his clan, though Ryu's psyche imposed his clan members onto the dead Uchiha. Being forced to witness that for hours on end in his perspective, drove Ryu with such a rage that terrified everybody around Ryu for the next few days. Itachi hiding away was likely one of the best decisions he ever made. This situation is just a microcosm of Itachiís life. His killings will always taint his reputation, and he has to embrace them for the sake of his clanís honor. Ryu and he would have been good friends if he knew the true circumstances behind Itachi, yet Itachi would the truth to the grave than risk the consequences of it being known.

Your hate is not strong enough.

  • If there was a name more hated and reviled than that of Rugal Bernstein among the participants in the King of Fighters tournaments, it's Leopold Goenitz. Thought to have been deceased following the conclusion of Chizuru Kagura's tournament, Goenitz has resurfaced following the defeat of Verse. For Kyo Kusanagi and Leona Heidern, Goenitz's return is more personal for the two. Goenitz had challenged and soundly defeated Kyo before Kagura's tournament, beating him within an inch if his life, leaving Kyo nearly dead, forcing Kyo to come up with some new techniques to even the score. Regarding Leona, she had it the worst. When her birth father, Gaiden, refused to join Goenitz in his task of reviving Orochi, Goenitz triggered Leona's hidden powers, activating the Blood Riot within her. After witnessing Leona massacre her parents and her village, Goenitz sealed her memories. He even drew the Kagura clan's rage by murdering the twin sister of Chizuru, Maki Kagura, in order to weaken the seals locking Orochi away. And now, the dark priest of the winds have ascended to the Pantheon.
    • Rugal, on the other hand, is slightly amused upon hearing of Goenitz's appearance, as he had dealings with the Hakkesshu of Wind. Goenitz bestowed a small portion of Orochi's power onto Goenitz, at the cost of his eye. Ryuji Yamazaki, on the other hand, could honestly care less. Despite being part of the Orochi clan, Yamazaki prefers to do his own thing, which is busting up dojos and killing for coin, all for shits and giggles. Goenitz also notices the absence of Rugal's secretaries, Vice and Mature. Also of the Orochi bloodline their absence is something that Goenitz intends to remedy. First and foremost, Goenitz is working on securing the ascension of Team Orochi (Yashiro Nanakase, Shermie and Chris), if only to give him a better advantage.
  • As a man of the cloth, Goenitz's appearance has roused both the curiosity and interest of the Pantheon's resident clergy and the devout. Despite seeing the wind master as something of a heretic due to his following of a pagan God, Bishop Mozgus sees Goenitz as something of a kindred spirit. Even after a failed attempt by his Heralds (i.e., his Torturers) to 'convert the pagan heathen to the True Faith,' in which Goenitz fended off his attackers without breaking a sweat, Mozgus promised not to give up in bringing Goenitz around to the True Faith. Alexander Anderson is another deity strong in his faith, a trait shared with Goenitz. Alas, both Goenitz and Anderson see the other as a heathen, and while Anderson wants to see the Catholic Church as the dominant religion on the planet, Goenitz wants to outltright exterminate humanity to further Orochi's goals. The more traditional religious deities see Goenitz as a major threat, both him and the God he serves. Goenitz sees them as nothing but mere bugs underneath his feet that he can crush under his he'll. But as they are not a threat to Goenitz, he leaves them alone... for the time being.
  • Powerful as he is, Goenitz knows not to push his luck with some of the more powerful deities in the Pantheon, especially those who are parents, given his past stunt of making Leona go Blood Riot on her birth father and her village. Two men come into mind, the deified Spartan Kratos and the former Guardian General, Asura. Challenging either one of them would result in less-than-promising results. Threatening to harm their progeny would send them on a rampage on par with Iori and Leona in Blood Riot mode. However, Goenitz sees Fujin as a threat, the God of Wind finding himself in the dark priest's crosshairs. However, Fujin has the edge when it comes to power, and that's not saying anything about Raiden, let alone the ascended kombatants that serve as Raiden's chosen warriors. Goenitz has his eyes on Liu Kang and Scorpion, of only because their pyrokinetics were similar to the Kusanagi's Magatama abilities. Johnny Cage and his daughter are also persons of interest, due to their warrior bloodline being the key factor in defeating Shinnok. Goenitz wonders if their inborn powers could withstand his powers of the winds.
    • But what really piques Goenitz's interest is that Liu is the current owner of Kronika's Hourglass and Crown, a relic that can control time itself. Now, Goenitz is scheming to usurp control from the newly-minted Fire God and use the Hourglass to ensure not only Orochi's victory over the Kusanagi, the Kagura and the Yasakani (Yagami) clans, but the total extermination of mankind as a whole, thus returning the planet to Orochi in order for the Earth to properly heal. Thankfully, Goenitz cannot access the Hourglass and Crown, let alone the more dangerous relics inside the Pantheon's treasury.
  • While both Amaterasu and Susano'o are constantly at each others' throats over the latter's antics, one thing that unites them is their abject hatred of Yamata no Orochi. For Goenitz, that hatred is mutual, as both the Japanese kami of the sun and the kami of storms slew his lord and God on two separate occasions, with Amaterasu performing the deed as a mangy mutt wielding an inkbrush. Upon hearing of Orochi's top priest in the Pantheon, Amaterasu amd Susano'o agreed to a truce to better monitor and if needs be, combat the threat of Goenitz, should he try to revive Orochi.
  • Following a specific chain of events in which Goenitz encountered various World Warriors, a witch, and an actual demon, Goenitz has been monitoring these new challengers rather closely. The Dark Hadou has caught his interest, yet he does not see Gouken or his two students as threats. Rather, Goenitz sees Akuma as the greater threat, given that some reports show that Akuma was able to absorb the Orochi power from Rugal to become even more powerful. However, it's the deified Shadaloo boss that Goenitz needs to worry about. His flames are similar to that of Chris' own Orochi fire, but Goenitz considers Bison's Psycho Power to be inferior to that of the Orochi fire.
    • And that's not saying anything about Akuma's connection to one Kazumi Hachijō Mishima. Though Kazumi, Goenitz discovered the King of Iron Fist Tournaments and the ongoing blood feud within the Mishima bloodline. The Devil Gene that Kazumi, Kazuya and Jin wield could be considered a threat, one that Goenitz is monitoring closely. If the three carriers would stop trying to kill each other, then it would be a close fight.
    • The Illuminati is another focus of concern, especially its self-proclaimed Emperor, Gill. An alliance is out of the question, as Goenitz and Gill's ideas for mankind are different. Gill wants to lead mankind to salvation. Goenitz outright wants to exterminate mankind to restore the balance between Orochi and nature. That is something that Gill could not stand. If it does comes to blows, then it will come down to who wins: the wind master who wants to destroy humanity or the master of ice and fire, looking to save it. But Gill has a slight edge, having mastered two elements while Goenitz has just the one.
  • Despite being a defender of Nature, Goenitz is banned from the House of Nature, much to his dismay. Goenitz suspects that the two deified Avatars, Aang and Korra, were responsible for his being denied entry into the House of Nature, as they defend human life, while Goenitz wantes to destroy mankind to save the world. Not even Orochi himself could reverse the decree. Despite this, Al'akir has made himself known to Goenitz, given that he is also a master of the wind. The two has a friendly rapport, debating the other on philosophy and their respective master/deity at Goenitz's temple. Through one of these conversations, Goenitz was introduced to Waamu, of whom Goenitz had piqued his interest due to how his faith in Orochi is in sync with his power over the winds.

  • Octogeddon is just your normal giant octopus, lounging about underwater and minding his own businesses, until someone has the gall to mock him or other octopi right in his face. While almost any diver isn't that dumb, many forms of media like to poke fun at octopi in general from time to time. Unfortunately for the humans, Octogeddon has accessible technology underwater for viewing entertainment shows, and the intelligence to use it, as expected from octopi. Unlike other octopi in the Pantheon, Octogeddon's poor composure would let him be easily angered by humanity's distasteful jokes, and did what any giant enraged octopus would: Destroy the humans' own symbols of pride and dignity, which he did, wreaking havoc in both sea and land, using tentacles that could be given the DNA of other animals to create unique tentacles with powers based on the DNA given.
  • There was a new comedy flick made by several members of the Hall of Comedy Genres. Within it was a specific scene featuring a large octopus getting treated like a Butt-Monkey on top of plenty of other jokes at the octopus's expense. It didn't seem like a huge problem, at least until they found out that mortals outside the Pantheon were able to access it, including a certain octopus that would see it all on their laptop. Not long after, a giant orange octopus with tentacles resembling the heads of various animals and an unceasing rage would come out of nowhere and roll over every structure in its way. With the military forces hardly stopping it, the more divine and supernatural heroes were forced to step in and stop the octopus, and even then, it took much more effort than their usual Monster of the Week to do so. Learning about their new foe, the Pantheon learned of Octogeddon's rampage throughout the world, successfully destroying very important man-made monuments of humanity, from the Eiffel Tower to the White House itself, which would cause Octogeddon to be ascended under Monumental Damage.
  • While he was willing to follow by the Pantheon's rules in order to stay, he's difficult to control or handle given his range of powers, and how relentless he can be when enraged, which is something that's just as easily done as said for Octogeddon in particular. However, the Nature Uprising had been allowed to watch over Octogeddon, and putting many restrictions and supervisions on the media that Octogeddon could access to prevent Octogeddon from getting mad again. The GUAN has to be extra careful since Octogeddon can see past the more subtle jokes too. He ended up getting along with the Gaea's Avengers movement, since they also have a bone to pick with some of the problematic parts of humanity as well. As for personal motives to bring in Octogeddon, they're interested with Octogeddon's ability to merge his tentacles with the DNA of other animals, Octogeddon's overall friendliness (at worst, tolerance) to most sea creatures, and to prevent the alternative of the Grand United Alliance of Destruction using Octogeddon to their own advantage.
    • Mr. Burns and other deities that have bad intentions for sea life have been concerned about Octogeddon, considering the fact that even giant mechs, as well as nuclear submarines and planes couldn't stop it. It's exactly what the GUAN were hoping for, having another powerful asset in their hands that can deter those like Mr. Burns should things get ugly.
  • On top of members from the GUAN, both Aquaman and Beast Boy are often able to intervene in Octogeddon's destructive thrashes due to being able to communicate with the giant octopus for the purpose of talking him down. It's not always successful, since a really angry animal is still a really angry animal, but their efforts have stopped Octogeddon diplomatically from time to time. Beast Boy claimed that much of Octogeddon's communication to them when he's attacking cities is mostly Angrish. They'd be probably more successful if it weren't for the VUX, a race of tentacled aliens that also oppose humanity for really petty reasons, encouraging the octopus to destroy as much human civilization as possible. While Octogeddon doesn't reject their support, he's also not afraid to smash apart VUX Intruders that happen to be in its way either, and cares little about the VUX's motives.
  • Octogeddon also found a bit of kinship in Namor, for their mutual Hair-Trigger Temper and wrath against humans for offending them. They overall have different interests, but their teamwork when they're mutually angry at something can be a fearful sight. Even when their anger brings them against each other, they don't hold it against the other for very long.. The monsters of Rampage also find Octogeddon to be a swell partner in city destruction, and hope that Octogeddon can actually go out to cause havoc more often. Should the deities meet in the middle of such an attack, they easily get along and destroy military craft without getting in each other's way too much.
    • Orm the Ocean Master also sees a worthy ally and persecutor of unscrupulous surface-dwellers in Octogeddon. Whenever the octopus is angry, humanity suffers nasty setbacks, which Orm really likes to see. However, on top of the GUAN trying to minimize his anger, Octogeddon doesn't really want to get himself mad, and doesn't listen to Orm unless he's already aggravated by something else the humans did. When that happens, both deities will revel in bringing retribution to humans that they believe deserve to be on the opposing side of their wrath.
  • For underwater explorers, Octogeddon doesn't mind their presence as long as they don't try to harass him. The Diver, while opposed to the octopus' destruction, respects his boundaries, and Octogeddon respects hers in return. Captain Nemo knows better than to hunt something that his ship can't certainly defeat. The Octonauts, who drive an octopus-shaped ship underwater, don't view Octogeddon too well for its malicious nature when angry, but they never antagonize each other, with all of their encounters ending smoothly. Professor Inkling in particular seems to have become some sort of Morality Chain to Octogeddon, since they're always on speaking terms and is also capable of bringing Octogeddon to his senses most of the time when his group runs into Octogeddon while he's destroying other submarines in anger. Coincidentally, many of the deities that would normally try to torment the Octonauts have ceased antagonizing them ever since Octogeddon ascended due to complaints of getting shred apart by giant sawshark cuts.
  • Spongebob saw a potential friend in Octogeddon, thinking that he could be a decent visitor of Bikini Bottom, which is mostly true. Whenever the octopus is brought to the Krusty Krab by Mr. Krabs to get Krabby Patties, it either ends really well or really badly for the place, the latter usually occurring by some Noodle Incident leading to Octogeddon getting mad and destroying the place. Otherwise, he pays big for his orders, so their relationship is still positive overall. Octogeddon has a better tolerance of Squidward Tentacles, given their similar cranky attitudes when not angered, and liking to complain about how annoying their neighbours can be at times.
  • Is banned from the House of Food since the latter doesn't want to ban takoyaki from their menu, or fried tentacles, so all food deliveries are done by the GUAN. Octogeddon does eat fish, being a natural predator, but even Octogeddon found Padak's cruel death at the hands of humans disheartening, which got Octogeddon angry once again, breaking part of his temple's entrance as it swam up to attack humans once again. Strangely enough, Octogeddon gets along with the Angry Birds due to opposition of being considered food (or at least their eggs for the Birds), and their tendency to cause destruction to the structures of their enemies. The Angry Birds are a little weirded out by seeing Octogeddon's Chicken and Rooster tentacles spit out giant eggs though.
  • Octogeddon likes the Octolings and their common activities, as kiddish as he deems to be. As for the Inklings, he doesn't mind their presence much either. While he's also fond of Off the Hook himself, the latter duo is worried that Octogeddon may side with DJ Octavio should he ascend to the Pantheon. Octogeddon rejects their anxieties, not finding the Inklings or their society to be offensive toward Octogeddon. The octopus notes that if the Inklings and Octolings are getting along better, then Octogeddon will simply leave them all be.
  • The Penguins of Madagascar were upset at Octogeddon's ascension, being reminded of one of their own mortal enemies, Dave, another antagonistic octopus, though Octogeddon was much bigger, stronger, and a little dumber. When Octogeddon decided to get on land to begin another attack, the Penguins tried to stop him early. Octogeddon underestimating them let the penguins get an advantage, using their teamwork and other skills to outwit the giant octopus. However, Octogeddon had quickly turned the tide by pulling out one of his modified tentacles, a tentacle with Penguin DNA in particular, which psychologically shocked the penguins before freezing them all solid, before they were swat aside for Octogeddon to continue its work.
  • In a different incident, Octogeddon went to a dense city in the Pantheon to destroy its skyscrapers, given how much its denizens were proud of them. Of all the heroes in giant mechas to oppose Octogeddon, it was MEGAS, piloted by the infamously reckless Coop who decided that he wanted to make a joke out of the octopus. Octogeddon responded to his remark about the octopus by bombarding the mech with eggs and cobra venom, but MEGAS would pull through and defeat Octogeddon with its powerful weaponry, sending Octogeddon back to the ocean. Not that it even mattered anyway, since MEGAS accidentally decimated the skyscrapers that Octogeddon targeted anyway.
  • The developers behind Octogeddon were also responsible for the creation of PopCap games Insaniquarium and Plants Versus Zombies. While Crazy Dave and Octogeddon get along since Crazy Dave reminds Octogeddon of his personal vendor Catfish Carl, the Bloom and Doom Co. Plants don't like Octogeddon due to the fact that Octogeddon has no problem destroying the properties they usually protect. Dr. Zomboss doesn't like Octogeddon either, since Octogeddon crushes every zombie that tries to get in its way. He tried to get Octogeddon on his side, but soon enough Octogeddon learned of some beach zombies in Zomboss's forces, including one that actively throws octopi at enemy plants, which got the giant octopus even angrier at the zombies, so they have no chance of friendship. Lex also opposes Octogeddon since libraries don't get any special treatment from him either.
  • Octogeddon's ability to add DNA of other animals, including ancient creatures like the T-Rex or mythical creatures like dragons of all things has not only gotten the worry of the House of Beasts and Fauna for Octogeddon's potential to use DNA of their members to its advantage, but Mesogog has been intrigued by such abilities, seeing Octogeddon as potentially the ultimate Animalistic Abomination that Mesogog could enhance with his skills, especially if alien DNA works with Octogeddon's tentacles. There's also the fact that Octogeddon can somehow have more than 8 tentacles, as Octogeddon has been seen destroying tanks and planes with 11 tentacles flailing about, and perhaps with the potential for more while in the Pantheon. Thankfully, Octogeddon only revives with 8 tentacles should he fall in battle.
  • In his universe, Japan fell to Octogeddon after they made a movie showing what appeared to be Godzilla dealing a Curb-Stomp Battle to a giant octopus monster, with Octogeddon destroying their Imperial Palace. The deities from there are more surprised that it didn't go for the Tokyo Tower then they are angered by Octogeddon's offenses. As for Godzilla himself, Octogeddon would engage in a fierce battle with the King of the Monsters, throwing out attacks from tentacles imbued with the DNA of some of the most powerful creatures it could have, from Black Mambas to Narwhals to Dragons. Despite the incredibly powerful front, Godzilla still withheld his reputation by repelling the octopus with his own powers, which ended with both monsters heavily injured. Octogeddon decided to simply leave on its own, oddly satiated with what it did, worrying a few scientists of a potential outcome of Octogeddon coming back with tentacles infused with Godzilla's DNA. While the two monsters don't enjoy each other's presence, they do occasionally work together when it involves Hedorah, whom Octogeddon despises since Hedorah would be able to pollute the oceans horribly.
  • When it comes to other aquatic creatures in the Pantheon, it naturally got along with the Kraken, a fellow giant cephalopod, and the Orca, who also has a grudge on humanity for more personal reasons. Bruce would like to rival Octogeddon, but the giant octopus beats it in size, strength, and ferocity, on top of having dealt with bigger mecha-sharks than Bruce, so Bruce keeps a distance from Octogeddon. Duke Fishron is a far more threatening rival in comparison, and Octogeddon only engages in battle with the flying terror if it deems its set-up of tentacles to be sufficient for taking Duke Fishron down. Lagriacrus and Ceadeus may be able to match or even outmatch Octogeddon's size, especially their variants, Octogeddon isn't unfamiliar to combat with much bigger enemies.
    • Has a personal dislike of Ecco due to a bad memory where a dolphin received Best Octopus award over other octopi candidates. He can use Dolphin DNA as a tentacle, but takes form of a dolphin tail, which Ecco may or may not find offensive. Gigabolt Man-O-War reminds Octogeddon of the Electric Jellyfish enemies that he deals with, and simply repels the robot with an Elephant DNA tentacle out of annoyance.
  • Jack Sparrow grimaced at the news of Octogeddon's ascension, since Octogeddon is practically an even worse version of the Kraken that can pull off a greater variety of attacks, including swallowing up his ship with a Pelican tentacle. And unfortunately for Sparrow, Octogeddon ensures him that any encounter will not end well for the pirate. The same goes with Captain Hook, who was even more frightened by the octopus given that a smaller one terrorized Hook in one of his own attempts to eliminate Peter Pan, and though Octogeddon doesn't have a taste for the pirate, the angry octopus would prefer that Hook keep out of his way as much as possible, which he is certainly doing.
    • Also despises the entire hall of Piracy viewing all of them as either nuisances or threats. Being a giant octopus, Octogeddon has little difficulty laying waste to their vessels should Octogeddon get close enough. Octogeddon will hardly hesitate to thrash his tentacles upon both the amoral or evil pirates like Black Manta, and even the more good-aligned pirates out of principle. He'll be likely to let off the latter group if they take care not to disturb him, though.
  • All of Octogeddon's actually threatening enemies from his universe are exclusively machines in some form or manner, so naturally it poses a huge threat to the Grand United Alliance of Machines, and opposed by users of giant mechas, both good and evil, which is too many to count. And as for a warning to Dr. Eggman, he's trounced a mecha-counterpart of himself, so spending a few weeks to make another robotic clone of the octopus would do him no good. While not too concerned with having to deal with superpowered humans that can fight back, there's also Koro-sensei, a deity with an alien body resembling an octopus, and with the speed to even outmatch the Super Speedy Subs and Planes that Octogeddon dreads. As far as Koro-sensei's concerned, not only does he know how to quickly subdue Octogeddon, but he's confident that he can teach Octogeddon to control his own temper, which is something that the giant octopus doesn't appreciate too much.
  • Octodad, obviously being a human citizen, dislikes Octogeddon for trying to ruin him and his family's lifestyle, as is expected from him. Octogeddon doesn't look upon Octodad positively, but leaves Octodad alone to let him go about his business. Octogeddon can easily see through Octodad's disguise, and is actually confused by Octodad considering that he's had to deal with people that have shown hostility to octopi like him personally, yet settles down with a human family regardless, but respects his desires. Ariel similarly opposes Octogeddon since she personally loves the human world that Octogeddon sees as nothing but miserable places to wreck, which the octopus understands and leaves alone. Her nemesis, Ursula, a half-octopus, tried to make Octogeddon attack Atlantica for her own ends, but Octogeddon doesn't have any beef with her father King Triton, nor does he want to cause trouble with him since he does show proper respect toward octopi in general as well.
  • Joe, granted enlightenment by a formula that grants humanity and intelligence to an animal consumer, finds Octogeddon to be a potential game-changer in his agenda to Take Over the World with an army of enlightened sea creatures. That said, it would take far more than what he has available to have the formula give the giant octopus any meaningful effect. When Joe proposed an alliance for the sake of dominating humanity with new enlightenment from being uplifted. While Octogeddon didn't necessarily accept the offer, he does show minor interest in what Joe promises, though he doesn't care too much for ruling humanity with an iron tentacle, deeming management of humans to be a waste of time. That and Octogeddon's satisfied with just watching videos all day, at least until something irks him again.
    • This desire to not have to deal with irritating remarks from humans and to just relax all day was something that Robbie Rotten could empathize with. Though Robbie was intimidated by the octopus at first, and having to deal with going underwater to meet Octogeddon in the first place, their first encounter went off unusually well. Whenever Robbie Rotten isn't working his butt off to motivate others to be lazy, Robbie Rotten may occasionally visit Octogeddon's temple to waste time, and it helps that he knows how to get around Octogeddon's Hair-Trigger Temper. For that, Robbie Rotten has become one of the few humans that Octogeddon genuinely likes, leaving an open chamber of air just for him. Of course, if Octogeddon grows furious again, Robbie Rotten simply stays away knowing that such rage is beyond his control.
  • Of all the places that Octogeddon has attacked, he has special ire from deities from America since he attacked the country twice, destroying the Statue of Liberty and then the White House, and the latter was actually a Weaponized Landmark. Americans of both good and evil morality have a personal grudge on Octogeddon, from the Broforce to the Enclave who all glorify America in their own way. Liberty Prime definitely sees the monster octopus as an anti-American threat, but actually worries about how they would fare against Octogeddon, since Mech Force One, the combat-capable variety of the White House that fought Octogeddon and lost, sounds not only much more formidable than Liberty Prime but ten times more patriotic. As for Saxton Hale of Australia, which Octogeddon attacked to destroy the Sydney Opera House, the CEO of Mann Co. deems Octogeddon a splendid challenge to take on, and one that Octogeddon can't ignore, given Hale's ridiculous strength.
  • Remarks about how easily tied up octopi tentacles can get, or anything implying usage of tentacles for sexually harassing women is bound to get their speaker violently smashed into the ground should they reach Octogeddon's statocysts. (For the record, Octogeddon claims that he holds no romantic let alone sexual interest in any of the deities in the Pantheon.) The Annoying Orange would learn this the hard way, rambling non-stop with both mentions of such tropes toward the giant octopus when it came by. Unfortunately for Orange, the angry octopus saw the giant knife from the sky coming, and rolled out of the way to avoid being part of the Annoying Orange's Running Gag. With no other forms of defense, the Orange's temple was annihilated, to the grievance of very few deities.
  • Ika Musume has considered the advantages of bringing Octogeddon into her plans for world domination, which would actually give her a non-negligible chance of succeeding. But aside from the fact that she's a squid-alien and Octogeddon is a giant mutant octopus, Octogeddon is also far too destructive and merciless when angry to her liking. Davy Jones sees Octogeddon as another potential asset to send out against trespassing pirates, just like the Kraken, given that destroying ships is something Octogeddon is infamous for. Octogeddon doesn't really care for the agendas of either of them, and simply wants to relax in his temple until he finds yet another (petty) reason to attack human civilization again.

  • He merely walked his way into the Pantheon and everywhere he goes, animals would run, where he spits grass would die, any plants he touch would dry up and die, and animals that look upon him tend to die of fatal brain embolisms. Men get cancer by staring at him too long, disputes would turn into bloody battles quickly, Babies weep and cry when he is near, and women often feel uneasy and avoid him at all cost (Unless you were one of those that were meant to be his then they might have developed a dark magnetism to him)
  • He had his walking boots on and was attracted to the chaos that erupted in the house of magic only to try and make it from bad to way worse
  • In one universe he used a deadly Flu Virus named Project Blue A.K.A Captain Trips that wiped out 99.4% of people on the earth, along with his power to take over half the U.S before he was killed by a nuke, He merely woke up in a different location ready to start anew.
  • In another Universe he was an advisor to a king, only to later kill him and let one of his corruptible sons and plunge that kingdom to a thousand years of darkness, even though he was confronted and driven away by the other son it has been revealed that he did this to the kingdom many times in the past and would eventually bring it to ruin in the future.
  • In his main universe he is trying to bring the downfall of The Dark Tower (The lynchpin of the multiverse) which would destroy everything, he reasons are as follows
    ďAs for the end of the universeÖI say let it come as it will, in ice, fire, or darkness. What did the universe ever do for me that I should mind its welfare?Ē
  • Is often seen grinning constantly as though all is good with the world though the other gods know well that his smile is just a warning that something is going to go wrong or already has.
  • He is attempting to corrupt people in various houses by taking different disguises.
    • As Randall Flagg in old blue jeans, denim jacket and old cowboy boots, He appears to be a helpful cheery man that wants to help be apart of many evil organizations but what he really will do is attempt to undermine and control many of them so that he can be a large destructive influence (He has been to many before as a member doing various cruel things), he can even be apart of many peaceful groups that if he goes unnoticed he will turn to very dangerous and extremist factions, a far cry from what they used to be.
    • As Walter o'Dim he hides himself under a dark cloak , he attempts to give out the fortunes of many members of the Pantheon often trying to show them tarot cards relevant to their future,this is actually an attempt to manipulate them to do his bidding as he needs them to sow the idea that what they do is right when it makes everything else worse
    • As Marten Broadcloak he wears a combination of his two other outfits, He attempts to teach other magical users that arts that he learned through the years in a attempt to "help" them as he feels most of their magics need it, in truth it is for them to start using forbidden magics to turn them evil or insane, and if he gets a lucky day then it will make some both
  • He is now attempting to gain influence after the "Great Upheaval" as he feels it is the perfect time to turn a bad incident, and battle between Gods, into a multiverse blood filled massacre, so that he can have the grandest smile on his face.
  • He likes to sing around others "Baby can you dig your man? He's a righteous man, Tell me Baby can you dig your man?", he doesn't reveal why he does this but others feel it is a sort of insult.
  • Also likes to show those that work under him from that he does not like failure that he can do more then just crucify you, there were worse things than crucifixion. There were teeth.
  • Likes to invade the dreams of others, specifically corruptible people as he wants to terrify them or make them his follower, the victim would often dream of being in a cornfield at night, the ground often swarming with rats, he would appear as a shadowy figure with a large grin and glowing red eyes.
  • Has appeared as Marten Broadcloak in the Magical Girl Sisterhood, more specifically their dreams claiming that Homura is like his old pal Roland Deschain and that all she will do is bring death and destruction, like Roland did so many times before due to single minded obsession, and he knows of ways to make sure that in the chance they cannot stop her from doing more damage on their own he has knowledge of powerful magic that he is willing to give to them to give them an edge.
    "As long as you draw from The Power of The Red, then even devils will burn up like the biggest roast you will ever see"
  • If any see a crow around the house be wary for that maybe Flagg watching them as one person stated
    "The crows and the rats are his"
    • Maybe using this to manipulate Ruby Rose, as she sees a dusty old crow, and not the Ageless Stranger.
  • Is working along side Mr. Scratch and Satan to secure The Great Will's Throne for Satan and in return give him entrance into The Dark Tower and reach the top so that he can become a more powerful god.
  • Under Satan's instructions he has invaded the dreams of Madoka then made an offer of gaining protection from other dream invaders while attempting to manipulate her to start using her Hatred and Dark Magic in order to make her perfect for Satan's plans for The Pantheonic Rebellion, He has given her The Devil Mask.
  • Was delighted to welcome the broken soul of Jack Torrance into the body. He hopes to manipulate the writer into more atrocities.
  • Though the Rebellion has left him with great many opportunities, he finds that he has to enjoy it with a new look, and can't wait to show the Pantheon what new plans he has in store.

    Selvaria Bles 
Brigadier General Selvaria Bles, Goddess of Living Weapons of Mass Destruction (Azure Witch)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/selvaria_bles_profile.png
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: The Valkyria Lance and Shield
  • Theme Song: Valkyria's Omen, Valkyria's Awakening
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Valkyria, One-Woman Army, General, A Mother to Her Men, Dark Magical Girl, Unrequited Love for Prince Maximillian, Tall, Busty, Voluptuous, White Hair and Red Eyes, Final Flame alongside the Gallian Army
  • Domains: Valkyria, Destructive Power
  • Heralds: Aliasse, Riela Marcellis, Crymaria Levin, Angelica Farnaby
  • Allies: The Helghan Empire, Colonel Mael Radec, Scolar Visari
  • Rivals: Esdeath, Shana, Kirito & Asuna, Mikoto Misaka, Shizuo Heiwajima, Akira Yuki
  • Enemies: Squad 7
  • Opposes: The House of Science
  • Selvaria Bles is the descendant of the Valkyrur, a race of warriors that have conquered Europa many millennium ago. This Valkyria is a high-ranking officer of the East Europan Imperial Alliance under the command of Prince Maximillian, who led the invasion force to conquer the Principality of Gallia. As a Valkyria, she has immense powers that can annihilate any army.
  • In a distant memory, she was thought to have existed earlier as the Goddess of Dark Action Girl. Some, however, thought that she was only a legend ever since the title was taken over by Katarina du Couteau. Some legend came true as she emerge with a radiating blue flames around her and it was said that she usurped Justice for her title of Person of Mass Destruction.
  • She dedicated her life to serving under Prince Maximillian, the prince of the Empire who rescued her from a life of endless torment under the knife. She was even willing to use her power that cause her suffering, if it means pleasing him and bringing victory. Selvaria is trying very hard to have him ascended even if he doesn't exactly reciprocate her feelings for him.
  • She is compared to Esdeath, the most powerful member of the empire and the top enforcer to the emperor. Though she is not motivated by love for her emperor but only fight so that she could let her domineering personality show. While Selvaria and Esdeath are not in strong terms, Esdeath does relate to her unreciprocated love, even if it is a different situation.
  • When worlds collide, Selvaria found herself on another world far from Europa. She has been trying to find a way to return back to her own world so that she could return into servitude with Maximilian.
  • Her abilities as a Valkyria are her superhuman strength and a powerful Healing Factor. But her most dangerous power (to everyone, including her) is the Final Flame, an immense power that is comparable to nuclear explosions (complete with a mushroom cloud).
  • She holds disdain toward scientists because of her past of being experimented by Imperial researchers for her Valkyria powers. The irony is lost on her as the experiments were sponsored by Maximilian himself.
  • Being the top enforcer of an empire got her to meet Colonel Mael Radec, who like her is one of the best men in his respective empire. Radec approached her on behalf of his superior Visari, who suggested allying with Selvaria since he is very impressed by her Valkyria powers and offered her to help Prince Maximillian ascend in exchange for her vouching for an alliance between the East Europan Imperial Alliance and the Helghast. While at first a bit hesitant to accept Visari's offer, she agreed after some consideration.
    • When it comes to Radec, the two work very well together. However, she doesn't approve of his tendency to execute his men if they fail him, Selvaria is a lot different in that regard but was surprised that Radec does care for his men from time to time. As for the rest of the people of Helghan, they remind her of the time she was experimented and sympathizes with the conditions and hardships the Helghan had to endure.
  • A Valkyria, not a valkyrie. There's a difference. She doesn't seem to care that there are other valkyries in the Pantheon as both are different in comparison. Still, considering that she fell in battle, Freya tried to welcome her to Valhalla and felt a bit of pity that she perished by sacrificing herself for the sake of her love.
    • Her efforts during the Imperial invasion of Gallia caught the eyes of the war gods. Gods like Ares is pleased of her destructive powers that could shift the tides of war and inspire many men to fight with such power at their side.

    Tuska 
Tuska, Goddess of Planet Destroyers (The World Devourer, The Beast Goddess, Ancient God-Beast, The Boar Goddess)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maxresdefault_297.jpg
  • Intermediate God, Greater Goddess when facing beings reliant on magic or energy based attacks.
  • Symbol: Tuska's symbols.
  • Theme Song: Tuska
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Planet Destroyer, Devouring The Anima Mundi Of Worlds, God Is Dumb, Anti-Magic, Apocalypse How, Eldritch Abomination, Fed to Pigs, Full-Boar Action, Messy Pig, The Juggernaut, Non-Malicious Monster, Not Quite Dead, Mindless Destruction, Portent of Doom, Your Afterlife Is Mine/Underworld Eating, Anima Mundi
  • Domains: Boars, Pigs, Tusks, Meteors, Earthquakes, Storms, Anima Mundi, Portals, Space, Raids, Pillaging, Destruction, Fear, Symbiotic Relationships
  • Followers: Nero, Planet Buster users
  • Heralds: The Airut
  • Allies: GUAD, The Grox
  • Enemies: Guthix, (Insert Name Here), Unicron, Primus, Amatsu-Mikaboshi, Mogo, Great A'Tuin
  • Of Interest to: The House of Magic and Craft
  • Opposed by: Jimmy Neutron, Osiris, Anubis, Thanatos, both Hades, many variations of the Devil, other Underworld related entities, Geb, Gaea, the Nature Preservers, Tartarus
  • The first time word of Tuska was heard in the pantheon came from (Insert Name Here); who knows of her from their adventures in RuneScape Gielinor, and shared the information he/she gained from the Guthixian Memories (Guthix's memories) INH collected.
    • Much later, after the memories of Guthix were told, several meteors crashed in the Pantheon, with some even carrying strange insects. Several residents in the Pantheon were also found killed and were branded with strange marking, which could also be found on the walls of some temples. A few residents of the pantheon have even claimed to have seen large bulky figures make the marks, but failed to make them out in any great detail.
  • Tuska doesn't care to be worshipped and likely doesn't even know that the Airut worship her for the strength she showed them. The Airut also live on Tuska's back.
  • Tuska possesses a barrier made up of Anima Mundi (similar to the Edicts of Guthix) which prevented lesser gods from approaching her and protect her from most energy based attacks.
  • Tuska's completely blind, having been blinded by a god named Skargaroth and a mortal Guthix.
  • Tuska and the Airut have a symbiotic relationship. The Airut ride and control Tuska with massive reins, leading her towards worlds for her to devour and while she's attacking the Airut pillage the world raiding it for resources.
  • Much like Galactus and Unicron, Tuska is another Planet Eater. Unlike Galactus who destroys planets as a side affect of feeding and Unicron who devours the entire planet, it is largely unknown how Tuska feeds only that the world ends up destroyed or at best barren as a result.
  • Since entering the Pantheon, she has not only attempted to eat it, but also Unicron, Primus, Amatsu-Mikaboshi, Mogo, Yog-Sothoth, Azathoth and the Great A'Tuin with mixed results for each.
    • Tuska managed to catch Unicron unaware while he was feeding and gored out a new trench on him. Unicron responded by transforming and pummeling her to death before devouring her. Tuska got better though.
    • Primus didn't even notice Tuska, having been defended by virtually every cybertronian forcing Tuska into fleeing.
    • Being the Primordial Chaos Amatsu-Mikaboshi possesses immense amounts of power causing Tuska to go after him. Tuska managed to surprise Mikaboshi thanks to her resistance to his energy based attacks; possibly even feeding off them, and even managed to deliver a few good blows. Unfortunately for Tuska though Mikaboshi has many other powers and quickly overcame her once he got over his surprise.
    • Mogo's powers as a Green Lantern did little to slow Tuska down and was ultimately devoured like many worlds before.
    • Due to his immense power Yog-Sothoth became a target of Tuska. Of course due to the very nature of Yog-Sothoth he was hardly in any danger and likely didn't even notice Tuska's attempts to devour him. Many in the pantheon though find it funny to know that Tuska's Going in Circles trying to find him.
    • Tuska once headed towards Azathoth, but the Airut had her change course once they started to hear the maddening tunes from the musicians playing to keep Azathoth asleep.
    • The Great A'Tuin thanks to his/her size contains large amounts of Anima Mundi which drew Tuska to him/her. Tuska's attack caused another one of the world supporting elephants on A'Tuin's back to fall off and the other three to lose Discworld. Tuska then abandoned its attack in order to devour Discworld, allowing the Great A'Tuin and at least three of the world supporting elephants to escape (the fourth one is "lost").
  • The exact size of Tuska is unknown, but would probably be similar in size to a Island.
  • Being the Earth personified Geb and Gaea naturally oppose Tuska along with the Nature Preservers.
  • Tartarus also opposes Tuska, but this is mostly for Gaea and possibly his own safety; as a Underworld entity, than any actual interest in nature.
  • The Airut make their armor and gloves out of Tuska's hair which increases their strength. This makes Tuska particularly interesting to the House of Magic and Craft. Various warriors and soldiers are interested in the armor and gloves as well.
  • Due to being so heavily saturated with Anima Mundi Tuska does not turn to stone when killed unlike the other gods of RuneScape.
  • Tuska can generate portals on her back, which the Airut use to go to worlds.
  • The earthquakes and storms caused by Tuska are simply created by Tuska's own gravitational pull, rather than her own will.
    • The remains of worlds also orbit Tuska and often times become meteorites when Tuska approaches a new world.

Lesser Gods

    Ellen Ripley 
Ellen Louis Ripley, Goddess of Justified Extermination
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9a737065_caff_4dcf_abe1_f4d6ba14edab.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A flamethrower crossed with an M41A Pulse Rifle
  • Theme: Ripley's Rescue
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolios: Action Heroine, Final Girl, Survival Mantra, Killing Things with Fire, Action Mom, Friend of all Cats, Mama Bear, Only Sane Woman
  • Domains: Law, Good, Destruction, Protection, Honor
  • Followers: Dana, all non-ascended Resident Evil protagonists, The Forerunners
  • Herald: Rebecca "Newt" Jorden (her surrogate daughter)
  • Superior: James Cameron
  • Allies: Sarah Connor, Dwayne Hicks, Jenette Vazquez, Samus Aran, The Metroid Hatchling, Laurie Strode, Sidney Prescott, The House of Childhood and Adolescence, Kirito and Asuna, Bryan Mills, all Feline deities, Cammy White, The Ghostbusters, Kenshiro, Piccolo, Indiana Jones, Rosemary Woodhouse
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Android 18
  • Enemies: The Xenomorphs (both Facehuggers and Drones), Ash, Indominus Rex, Victor Frankenstein, Cell
  • Opposes: Red Skull, Voldemort, Kefka, Daleks, Gihren Zabi
  • Conflicting Opinion: Frankenstein's Monster
  • One of the first Action Heroines in cinema as well as surviving countless hordes of one of the most ruthless alien beings in the pantheon was enough for the Pantheon to award Ellen Ripley with godhood.
    • Was overjoyed when Sarah Connor shortly followed her. Together, they are capable of kicking much ass.
  • Learning that the Xenomorphs are represented in both impregnator and adult forms appalled Ripley, but the Pantheon still refuses her suggestion to kill the Aliens ASAP. She at least has the solace of having two people with anti-Alien experience in Hicks and Vazquez to count on.
  • Shares a bond with Samus, keeping her company at times. The two have experienced many horrors of space, managing to overcome them all on their own multiple times. Samus is teaching that not all foreign organisms are evil; the Metroid Hatchling took a liking to her (with Ellen keeping a safe distance just to be sure). Eventually, Ellen did warm up to the hatchling.
  • Believes that Indominus Rex is an abomination and should be killed immediately. She shakes her head to the scientists who thought that creating such a creature was a good idea in the first place. It doesn't help that her most hated enemy is the high priest. She's keeping watch to make sure that the Xenomorph Queen doesn't ascend herself.
  • Despises Victor Frankenstein for trying to mess with forces she thinks no scientist will ever be able to understand. Is often accused of sabotaging his experiments. As for the monster he's most famous for... she's not sure what to make of him. Some versions are obviously evil, while others may actually be good. She's reserving judgement on him for now.
  • Is wary of all synthetic humans, as the first one she met tried to kill her. (and seeing Ash ascend was a terrible thing for Ripley, though at least she has the more trustworthy Bishop to help in any case) Although she has long since overcome those fears, she still keeps an eye out on even the heroic ones such as Android 18. However, she is more than willing to stamp out a more dangerous creation: Cell. She may not be able to back up her threats, but she at least has an ally that can.
  • Survived a summer camp with 5 other gods and a mortal. She gave credit to Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott for keeping her safe during the ordeal. The two final girls were sympathetic of Ripley's plight in her dealings with the Xenomorphs.
  • Her brave effort to save a young mortal by the name of Newt gained the admiration of the House of Children.
  • Is naturally a cat person, gaining the favor of all cat deities. Cammy White became close friends with her as a result. The two raise funds for downtroden cats.
  • Once met by Peter Venkman, who gave her a surprising embrace. Turns out he mistook her for Dana Barrett. Ellen had to let him down easy, telling him that just because the two shared the same actress doesn't make them one and the same. Although he was disappointed, he offered up the ghost-hunting service on the house. She has since grown a good relationship with the Busters.
  • With that said she does not condone those who exterminate friendly aliens or foreigners. Any follower who uses her divine powers on such will get their ass kicked by her personally followed by their immediate loss of cleric abilities. As such she opposes all gods who revel in such activities.
  • Often seen having beer and playing pool with one Commander Bryan Mills, Professor Jones, Kenshiro and Piccolo; the action heroes have taken a great liking to each other for ALL being parents who took on (and single-handedly) destroyed armies to protect their beloved children.
  • Ripley's valiant battle to save Newt from the clutches of The Alien Queen has earned the respect and admiration of Kirito and Asuna, themselves parents who would lay down their lives to protect their adoptive little girl Yui. As a result, she is invited to take the Team Mom position of The League of Adoptive Parents, which after some prodding from Yui (and Newt herself), the Lieutenant of the Nostromo graciously accepts.
  • Is on good terms with Rosemary Woodhouse, having felt sorry for her ordeal (along with Ripley once having a daughter for shared motherhood pain, she also thinks the only "forced to gestate evil" worse than a Facehugger is being impregnated by the Devil like Rosemary was).

  • Demigod
  • Symbol: NERV Logo
  • Theme Music: NERV
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil, devolving to Neutral Evil in Rebuild
  • Portfolio: Finger-Tenting, Dark Messiah, Diabolical Mastermind, A God Am I, Manipulative Bastard, Well-Intentioned Extremist
  • Domains: Technology, Evil, Law, Planning, Love
  • Herald: Deputy Commander Kozo Fuyutsuki (his assistant).
  • Allies(?): David Xanatos, Relius Clover, Ghetsis Harmonia, Ragyo Kiryuin, Charles zi Britannia, Darth Vader, Obito Uchiha, Enrico Pucci
  • Former Allies: Keel Lorenz
  • Enemies: Shinji Ikari (his son), Rei Ayanami, Arael, Asuka Langley, Kaworu Nagisa, Many Abusive Parents in the Pantheon, The Vivid Team, Kamille Bidan, Shiro Kanzaki, Nunnally Lamperouge, Team Dai-Gurren, MechaGodzilla III/Kiryu
  • Interested in: Yui Ikari
  • Opposed by: Haruko Hauhara, Naota Nandaba
  • Ascended after his failed attempt to trigger the Third Impact, then obtaining godhood, and finally reuniting with his wife. Naturally he's still trying to acheive the second goal.
  • The Children were shocked to hear about his ascension into the Pantheon. Shinji felt fear, Kaworu looked nervous, Asuka was beyond pissed, and Rei could not bring herself to face him.
  • Yui Ikari is uncertain about what's going to happen now with him in the Pantheon, but she knew he still loved her.
  • He's come into meeting David Xanatos often discussing all kinds of matters behind closed doors.
  • Gendo was surprised to learn about the many kinds of women interested in him despite his obsession with Yui. As he asked they all responded with the same "It's Gendo!!!"
  • Relius Clover was happy to learn about Gendo's arrival considering him like himself in a few ways. Gendo did not care much about people's opinions on him besides Yui, but he will talk with the fellow god just to keep him off his back. Personally he privately wishes old professor and lieutenant Kozo Fuyutsuki were around, if nothing else to have someone to talk to whose company he can appreciate and who won't be tempted to kill him in the spot. Most importantly, he was/is a good friend of Yui's, and reminiscing about her was a favored pastime of both.
  • Ragyo and Ghetsis both were impressed by the mental torture put on Shinji by his father. They also talk about the creation of a group of parents who do horrible things to their children.
    • However, Gendo has made it clear that he thinks Ghetsis went "a little too far" in his bastardry against N, while he has openly admitted disgust at Ragyou's actions, particularly how, whereas he mistreated Shinji out of what he saw as necessity for his greater goal with no significant malice behind it, Ragyou very obviously takes sadistic joy in making her daughters' lives a living hell.
  • Charles is often compared to Gendo due to both having the same kind of goals. Gendo could not care about that so he's more than okay with Charles' world without liesÖbut only Gendo can/could become God.
  • Darth Vader was seen with the man once. Not many could figure out what the conversation was about...
    • Gendo had spilled his soul over the actions he's committed and knows he's going to be stuck with many abusive parent gods. He does not truly want to harm his son and also hopes to fight back against the abusive parents of the pantheon in secret. Darth is unsure how to feel about this but he does understand Gendo's reason for this confession.
  • Pucci has allied himself with Gendo after hearing about how he reacted with the loss of his wife. Many fear the emotionless world the two plan to create.
  • Also has a seat in the House of Tics.
  • "There is no one else who can pilot the Evas. As long as they survive, that is what I'll have them do."

    Goblin Slayer 

Goblin Slayer, God of Genocide Against The Evil (Orcbolg, Beard Cutter, The Frontier's Kindest, JonTron)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/goblin_slayer_anime.png

  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His helmet, stained with goblin blood.
  • Theme Song: Rightfully, Goblin Slayer
  • Alignment: Easily misconstrued as Chaotic Good or True Neutral, but is actually an overzealous brand of Lawful Good
  • Domains: Hatred, Anger, Slaughter, Determination, Goblin-Slaying
  • Portfolio: Justified Goblin Genocide, Only Goes By "Goblin Slayer", Skill Over Strength, Good For Killing Goblins but Otherwise Middling In A Fight, Heroes Prefer Swords, Boring, but Practical, Never Takes His Armor Off, Sociopathic Hero who Becomes More Sociable Over Time, Immune to Fate
  • Heralds: Priestess, Cow Girl, Guild Girl, High Elf Archer, Dwarf Shaman, Lizard Priest
  • Allies: The Doom Slayer, White Mage, Ophilia Clement, Aerith Gainsborough, Shadow the Hedgehog, The Doctor, Hoss Delgado, Celica A. Mercury, Ragna the Bloodedge, Lance (Epic Battle Fantasy), The God-Emperor of Mankind, Kroq-Gar, Karl Franz
  • Opposes: The Green Goblin, SKYNET, Doctor Boom, Khazrak & Gorthor
  • Opposed By: The House of Prophecy and Fate (sans the Hall of Opposing Fate)
  • Enemies: Skarsnik, Jareth, The Overlords
  • Agrees to Disagree with: Rimuru Tempest
  • Conflicting Opinion On: Eren Yaeger, Goku and Vegeta
  • Avoids: Grimgor Ironhide
  • Pities: Velvet Crowe
  • Interested In: Ainz Ooal Gown
  • Indifferent Towards: Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson
  • One day, a man lost everything to the vile creatures known as goblins, who thrive on horrific acts of murder and rape. As they attacked his village, he was unfortunately the Sole Survivor. Undergoing Training from Hell, he rose up as a new man - one with a burning vengeance targeted at all the goblins in the world. He was christened as the Goblin Slayer, the man who swore to "be like a goblin to the goblins".
  • Goblin Slayer's ascension to the Pantheon was nearly unsuccessful, entirely because he couldn't care less about being the God of anything. After all, he had other, more important things to do elsewhere. He was persuaded to come along, however, after learning of the wide variety of goblins in the Pantheon - a man going by the title of Goblin King, and even a Goblin God. It didn't take him long after that to deem the Pantheon as needing his assistance even more than his home world was, and thus he consented to his ascension.
  • One of his first and most well-known friendships is with the Doom Slayer. Names/titles aside, the two are notorious for being very similar to one another, as both are single-minded slayers of a specific type of monster, which they despise with a passion. The main difference is that Goblin Slayer is much less openly gung-ho about his distaste for goblins compared to Doom Slayer and demons, but even so, the two are quite well-versed in the art of killing. They see each other as allies of sorts, though moreso on Doom Slayer's end than Goblin Slayer's.
  • For similar reasons, he has become good friends with Shadow the Hedgehog and The Doctor, both of whom are also responsible for guiltless genocide of an Always Chaotic Evil race. Similarly, Hoss Delgado is someone he sees himself in, for their "knowledge" that each and every one of their targets is evil, simply for being what they are - though Goblin Slayer is right more often than not, Hoss often tends to target ordinary monsters as well as the evil ones. Goblin Slayer understands this, and says that just like him, Hoss cannot afford to take such chances.
  • He has nothing but the utmost sympathy for Velvet Crowe, someone who went through similar experiences to him, but came out arguably much worse. That the act was carried out by her fellow man makes things all the worse in his eyes. He wishes her all the best for her life moving onwards.
  • His experiences in his home world have caused him to gravitate towards some of the White Mages in the pantheon, as they remind him of his friend, Priestess. This led to him making friends with Aerith Gainsborough, who in turn is reminded of Cloud. Goblin Slayer is a tad surprised by how foul-mouthed she can be, but isn't all that affected by it. Besides, she seems so much more competent than his friend, with no set limit on how many spells she can cast a day. He has also been getting along with Ophilia Clement, an even more powerful White Mage, armed with powerful light magic as well as the usual healing. She finds him to be rather similar to Therion, a comparison that confuses and annoys the latter.
  • While wandering through the Hall of Giants and Smallfolk on his usual hunt for goblins, he came across Celica A. Mercury, who seemed to have no idea where she was. Recognising her as fitting the exact criteria for "easy goblin prey", he took it upon himself to help her back to safety, and even guided her back to where she was trying to go. Since then, the two have managed to establish something of a friendship, with Goblin Slayer helping her on multiple occasions after this. It was through this that he met Ragna the Bloodedge, though these two didn't get along so swimmingly. Goblin Slayer's similarities to Hakumen did not help, though Ragna at least appreciates him helping Celica out.
  • Realising that most of the goblins in the pantheons are so much more powerful and higher-ranked than him, he realises that rushing in recklessly will not be in any way a valid situation. Currently, he is working on an elaborate strategy to eliminate Skarsnik from the Pantheon. Only time will tell if it works, and should it, he will move on to Jareth, cognizant of the fact that despite their titles, Jareth is actually the more powerful of the two, and that Skarsnik is the representative of all goblins in the Pantheon.
    • Skarsnik hates him, too. Throughout his time in the Pantheon, Goblin Slayer has dealt too heavy a blow to his goblin underlings. The two share an intense mutual enmity, and are plotting against one another to remove the other one once and for all.
    • He steers clear of Grimgor Ironhide, though. While Grimgor has goblins working under him, he primarily governs the Orcs, which Goblin Slayer knows from experience that he cannot defeat on his own without some seriously impressive tricks up his sleeve.
  • He does not like the Green Goblin one bit. The idea of a fellow human willingly associating with...them, is quite disgusting to him, as is the fact that he willingly does evil. Norman Osborne, for his part, reciprocates this sentiment, and Goblin Slayer has found that Norman's status as being more or less human means that there's nothing stopping him from just running him through with a sword when he least expects it.
  • "Fear" is by no means the right word, but Goblin Slayer is very worried as to what Doctor Boom is capable of. He is a goblin, yes, but more importantly, he's an intelligent goblin. Knowing that this goblin is a Gadgeteer Genius means he feels he must plan extra carefully as he gathers knowledge on him.
  • He has been keeping a close eye on the goblins of Warcraft for obvious reasons, and what he has found is rather surprising. Those goblins, unlike the vast majority of goblins in the Pantheon, appear to lack any inherent malicious intent. They tended to be more concerned with their science antics. Of course, for reasons already detailed, he views them as highly dangerous, and aims to exterminate them all the same.
  • He does not like Khazrak & Gorthor one bit, because the trope they represent happens to apply to the creatures he loves slaying so much. This has put them on his hit-list, though because they are not actual goblins, defeating them is more of an afterthought than anything.
  • As someone who keeps goblins in his employ, Goblin Slayer has taken a passing interest in Ainz Ooal Gown. He understands the lich is too powerful for him to take on, but he is specifically interested in the Great Tomb of Nazarick. He wants to explore the tomb, as he feels there might be too many goblins inside, and he can't wait to take care of that little problem.
  • He has an ally in Lance, from the Epic Battle Fantasy party. Like him, Lance is an adventurer who is willing to forgo any personal qualms for the sake of doing what needs to be done. Goblin Slayer is particularly interested in Lance's vast repertoire of weaponry, like his BFGs and nukes, feeling that they could be phenomenal anti-goblin weaponry, though if he were to use them, he may have to try and limit the collateral damage as much as possible.
  • He is one of the biggest thorns in the sides of the Overlords, as while he has yet to do anything directly to them, their minions have been decreasing in number rather dramatically ever since he arrived. This is no coincidence, and everyone knows that. Said minions are not goblins exactly, but they are similar enough for Goblin Slayer to decide that they need to go, preferably as quickly as possible. Thus, he has a target painted on his back, but despite this, he still aims to rip and tear until it is done.
  • The God-Emperor of Mankind smiles upon Goblin Slayer, knowing of his deeds and goals. He admires his willingness to take extreme courses of action for the greater good, and even more so his dedication to killing goblins, despite them being rank-and-file Mooks as far as everything else is concerned; the fact that he is taking care of the small fry that everyone else ignores in favour of the more imposing targets like demons is what he likes about him.
  • It is theorised that he runs a YouTube channel on the side, under the alias of JonTron. It has been noted that even in this persona, his seething hatred of goblins shines through, and he has made it known what his stance on the creatures is. Goblin Slayer, for his part, ignores the rumors, too apathetic to confirm or deny them.
  • He fully disapproves of anyone aiming to Kill All Humans, such as SKYNET, who he shares a house with, and while he knows there is not a lot he can do about these schemes, he will give his verbal approval of anyone who can. He is, unfortunately, too busy with his Guilt-Free Extermination War to actually help these people, however.
    • Upon meeting Eren Yaeger and learning of his plans, Goblin Slayer wasn't sure what to make of him. He recognises that Eren's plans are genocidal in nature, but also learned what drove him to be like this. Overall, he pities him, but is well aware that what he is doing is wrong.
  • Goblin Slayer has a rather hardliner stance surrounding goblins; he has gone on record as saying "The only good goblin is a dead goblin!". While anyone who has seen his home world would doubtlessly agree, or at least see where he is coming from, Rimuru Tempest is one who takes umbrage with this viewpoint, as he has had experiences with many good goblins in his world. Upon learning of this, Goblin Slayer told Rimuru his tale, and showed him what his world's goblins were like. Rimuru found them to be so starkly different from the goblins he is used to seeing that he couldn't do much more than Agree to Disagree with him. Overall, he sees where Goblin Slayer is coming from, and has agreed to help Goblin Slayer kill his world's goblins should they ever ascend to the Pantheon, but for everyone's safety, Goblin Slayer has been banned from visiting the Jura Tempest Federation. Given how powerful the slime and Demon Lord is, Goblin Slayer accepts, albeit begrudgingly, that for now, Rimuru can keep "his goblins" in line.
  • As the sole good members of an Always Chaotic Evil race, the likes of Goku and Vegeta are very confusing to him. He doesn't know what did it, but their ability to overcome their base instincts and fight for good is impressive to him. He would monitor them, but they are so much more powerful than him that he's content to just check on them every now and then
  • He is well aware of the existence of Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, and the influence they have had on his Dungeons & Dragons-inspired world, but overall, he doesn't really care for them. As is frequently acknowledged, he doesn't let anyone roll the dice for him, and the gods and fate have no hold over him. Why should these two be the exception? This has made him a point of contention within the House of Prophecy and Fate, as even the most powerful deities there cannot control or predict his next actions. Conversely, he is considered an honorary member of the Hall of Opposing Fate, who welcome him for being like them.
  • Can also be found in Acts of Hatred.

  • Themes:
  • A Unit of Demigods
  • Symbol: The HECU's US Military Beret Flash, or alternatively, their Powered Combat Vests (PCV)
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (Many of the less sympathetic ones are outright Lawful Evil, while the ones wishing only to fight the Alien Invasion are Lawful Good)
  • Domains: Soldiers, Cover-ups, Top Secret Operations
  • Portfolio: Tasked with covering up the Black Mesa disaster through force, bullets, explosives, gasoline, and artillery fire, Silencing all Black Mesa personnel on sight, with themselves being targeted and silenced later on, Capable of taking on two invading alien factions without flinching, US Marines, Many personnel being left behind during the evacuation of Black Mesa, with others being silenced for knowing about the disaster, Having M1 Abrams tanks, LAV-25s and M2 Bradleys, and F-16s and Harriers , Cavalry Betrayal (both on the giving and receiving ends), Mooks (from the Black Mesa personnels' POV), Redshirt Army (from their own POV), Having Snipers, Combat Medics, and Combat Engineers, Having radio static when they talk (From Gordon Freeman's perspective), Many expressing disgust for killing innocent civilians as well as doing cover-ups for the US Government

  • Opposed by: The Green Flu Survivors (The Pennsylvania Survivors) (The Savannah Survivors generally like and trust the military more sans Nick)
  • Based at the Santego Military Base in Arizona, USA, the Hazardous Environment Combat Unit of the United States Marine Corps, or HECU for short, are a branch of the US Marines tasked with operating in hazardous environments. In order to achieve this, they are issued thePowered Combat Vest, or PCV. Similar to the Black Mesa Science Team's Hazardous Environment, or HEV Suit, the PCV protects its users from the effects of toxic waste, radiation, fire, and other hazards. The only thing that the PCV lacks is the Long-Jump Module, but that's mainly due to the vest being designed for use solely on Earth and not on Xen.
  • Depending on the work, the HECU can be either a joint-service unit like SOCOM or exclusively a branch of the United States Marine Corps. The former depiction uses M2 Bradleys from the US Army, and have F-16 Fighting Falcons from the US Air Force, while the latter use the LAV-25 and the AV-8 Harrier. What remains consistent between depictions is that the soldiers are US Marines, armed with either an MP5 Submachine gun or an M4A1 Carbine, both with an underbarrel Grenade Launcher.
  • Aside from regular Marines, their commanding officers, and shotgunners, there are several specialized personnel in their cadre.
    • The first is the Sniper. Armed with the M 40 A 1 Sniper Rifle, their job is to take out enemies from elevated positions. During the Black Mesa Incident, this often included scientists and security guards as well as hostile aliens.
    • The second is the Combat Medic. As their name suggests, their job is to heal other HECU Marines mid-battle. Depending on the work, he is either armed with a 9mm handgun or an MP5 Submachine gun. In addition, he will either heal with a syringe or with medkits he always carries.
    • The third is The Engineer. Armed with a Desert Eagle, his job is to break open locked doors and barriers so that other Marines can progress further.
  • Thanks to the influences of a mysterious middle-aged man in a blue suit, they began training for "something" that would happen at the Black Mesa Research Facility in neighboring New Mexico. Many of the newer members of the unit, including one Cpl. Shephard, were hoping that this would be their first true combat deployment and not another training mission. And indeed, they didn't have to wait long...
  • During the Black Mesa Incident, the "something" in question, following the Resonance Cascade, the HECU were contacted by surviving members of the Black Mesa Science Team in the hopes that they would help fight off the aliens and rescue them. While they did arrive and immediately contained the Xen invasion, they also received orders from the US government to Leave No Witnesses, as it was assumed the Science Team was responsible for this mess, and they would cause a media circus if word of the invasion got out. In essence, it was a classic Cavalry Betrayal. In order to prevent the true nature of the Incident from going out to the world, they burned several alien corpses they captured as well as destroyed parts of the facility with gasoline and explosives.
    • However, they soon began encountering a new problem: a scientist by the name of Gordon Freeman, who effortlessly kept killing Marines like they were punks. Sure enough, the HECU begin a massive manhunt for the elusive scientist, setting up ambushes and even sending in attack helicopters and armored vehicles in an attempt to kill him. Each and every time, however, he ends up escaping or worse, wiping out each unit that he encounters down to the last man. Eventually, they decided to cut their losses and subsequently "Forget About Freeman" when they pull out of Black Mesa.
  • One day into the Incident, despite their initial successful assault and securing of Black Mesa, the Xen aliens began stepping up their invasion of Earth by bringing in more powerful alien units such as the Alien Grunt, Manta Ray, and the Gargantua. Despite sending in additional reinforcements as well as armored fighting vehicles and even attack helicopters, the Marines are beaten back and forced to pull out of Black Mesa. In an attempt to force the aliens to relent, they begin launching massive air and artillery strikes on the facility. Despite these massive barrages, the Xenians continue their relentless assault, cutting off several Marine units and forcing them to fend for themselves. Among them included Cpl. Shephard, who was left behind during a hasty aerial evacuation due to the efforts of the same middle-aged individual he had witnessed during his training.
  • This wasn't the end of their worries, however. In fact, things were going to go From Bad to Worse. Thanks to the Resonance Cascade, other aliens from other worlds began invading Earth. Among these included the hostile Race X, Planet Looters intent on colonizing Earth and terraforming it to suit their needs. These new aliens soon began clashing with the surviving Black Mesa staff, the Xen Aliens, and now, the stranded HECU units trying to escape.
  • In the end, the HECU were successful in preventing Race X from invading Earth, at the cost of their tickets out of Black Mesa and their own lives. Virtually all of the remaining Marines in the facility were killed by the nuclear explosion that leveled the rest of Black Mesa, if they weren't killed prior by the prowling aliens or the Black Ops ambushes along the way.
  • Following their near-destruction at Black Mesa, the HECU are ascended into the Pantheon at full strength, complete with PCVs, assault rifles, machine guns, combat shotguns, tanks, APCs, transports, attack helicopters, and even fighter and strike aircraft. Many deities from the House of War become interested in forming in alliance with the Marines because of this array of supplies and equipment, with General Shepherd being one of the more notable examples.
  • By the time of their ascension into the Pantheon, the HECU are caught once again in a massive MÍlťe ŗ Trois between themselves, The Nihilanth, and the Black Ops. Replacing Race X are The Combine, who prove to an even bigger threat than the already lethal Race X.
    • The latter's synths prove to be more than a match for their LAV-25s, Apaches, and M1 Abrams tanks. Though, fortunately for the HECU, they have air superiority in the form of Harriers and F-16s, which they use to prevent The Combine from deploying their airborne synths.
    • During one of these battles, Adrian Shepherd manages to reunite with the rest of his unit, and from then on he begins operating alongside his comrades in their attempts to stop The Nihilanth and The Combine from attempting to invade other houses. It's also through Shephard that they decide to form an Enemy Mine with Freeman, given that there's much bigger problems that they now have to deal with.
    • Despite their HeelĖRace Turn, the HECU are still wary of the Vortigaunts, though the Vorts have so far been able to reason with the Marines after a number of them help fight off Combine Hunters during a firefight. It also helps that the Vorts also hate the Nihilanth. As for the Headcrabs, the Marines still consider them as pests and threats, especially after a number of men were turned into Zombies during the Black Mesa Incident.
  • Are utterly disgusted and enraged that former Black Mesa Administrator Dr. Wallace Breen aligned himself with The Combine. Similarly, they hate ADVENT for the same reason, seeing them as justifications for why they performed their "cleanup" operations at Black Mesa. It becomes yet another reason for their truce with Freeman, as the latter is also a thorn on the Administrator's side.
  • The Pennsylvania Survivors are extremely wary of the HECU. This is due to their past experiences with another US Military unit, who had very nearly killed them for being carriers of an incurable disease, not to mention turning out to be pathetic at actually dealing with zombies in the first place. Given the HECU's previous outing and reason for their ascension, this isn't unwarranted. The Savannah Survivors, however, are more trustful of them (mostly Ellis and Coach, with Nick knowing that they're probably bad news), due to the Military helping them escape New Orleans in time, as well as the fact that the units they encountered were actually able to rescue people and delay the spread of the Infection.
  • When not in combat against hostile humans and aliens, several HECU Marines undergo the Advanced Training Course in order to practice their skills, now supervised by Gunnery Sgt. Hartmann. Despite his harsh training regimens, it ultimately pays off, as the Pantheon proves to be much more dangerous than the Black Mesa Research Facility, with far bigger threats and a larger array of environments.
  • Many other US Marines from different time periods also make their acquaintance to the HECU, surprisingly enough, despite the HECU's dark track record. It probably helps that many of these other Marines were also forced to do questionable acts themselves. Cole Phelps, himself a Marine with a dark past, gets along well with many of them.
    • Cpt. Martin Walker, like Phelps, also sympathizes heavily with a lot of the HECU personnel, having had to perform many questionable actions during his tour of duty.
  • Like the Black Ops before them, the HECU begin working alongside other organizations specializing in dealing with paranormal and supernatural threats. Despite their mutual hatred for one another, they form temporary truces with the assassins during situations such as these for fear of losing valuable allies. The MIB and XCOM especially appreciate the Marines' artillery and air cover, with the latter even requesting PCVs for their own personnel. The SCP Foundation, however, dislikes their use of excessive force and their "shoot first, ask questions later" mentality. This almost costs the lives of a number of Marines when they attempt to help the Foundation contain several of the more dangerous SCPs.
  • Like in a certain universe, the HECU actively engage the Decepticons in battle, forming yet another uneasy alliance, this time with the Autobots. Surprisingly, they manage to hold their own against them, thanks in part to their liberal use of explosive weaponry.
  • Are also among the many groups in the Pantheon wanting to get their hands on The Demonica, seeing it as the natural evolution and a massive step up to the already impressive PCV. Unlike some of the more evil deities, however, they're willing to bargain for one. To this end, they have Shephard make contact with certain members of the Schwarzwelt Investigation Team. Ultimately, Shephard ends up communicating and negotiating with the Original Neutral Route and New Neutral Route incarnations of Tadano Hitonari, seeing as he was also a US Marine tasked with saving his world from monsters from another dimension much like the HECU.
  • Stephen King takes a massive interest in them, due to the fact that they resemble the US military personnel seen in an adaptation of one of his works, not to mention their own story being inspired by his. Unlike them though, the HECU had failed to contain their Alien Invasion and were forced into a hasty retreat.

  • In 1896, in the Palais Garnier in Paris, France, there was an incident where a counterweight of the famous chandelier fell through the ceiling and killed a concierge. Thus began a legend of a phantom hiding away in the depths of the opera house, manipulating everything and everyone from behind the scenes for his own benefit. The Phantom of the Opera, actual name Erik, was a multi-faceted genius accomplished in architecture and music, but he had a horribly deformed face that invited scorn, so he hid away from society in the basement of the opera house. He loved a novice soprano, Christine Daaé, who he took in as a protege and personally trained. Things started to unravel once Christine's childhood friend Raoul came into the scene and the Phantom was possessed by destructive jealousy. As a last resort, he kidnapped Christine and forced her to choose between him and Raoul under threat of death. Christine chose Erik to save Raoul, which ironically proved to be the Phantom's undoing, as he was so deeply moved by this act of selflessness that he let both of them go. His fate afterwards is disputed.
  • Unsurprisingly for such a secretive character, no one in the Pantheon is sure when or how he got in; most deities are just vaguely aware of him being around as long as they can remember. This can be attributed to the fact that he's almost never at his assigned temple, instead preferring to roam a complex series of underground passages that appear to have stops in every House. So, it's hard to meet him unless he wants to be met, and yet he has information sources in every corner of the Pantheon. He is, of course, a large influence in the House of Theater where he keeps practicing his special type of patronage. The House is fine with his presence, even when the artists sometimes have to put up with his derision, so long as he doesn't drop a chandelier or otherwise bother anyone during a show.
  • The Phantom is fairly protective of other deities who have had the same bad luck in life as himself of being disfigured and shunned by society, and is responsible for introducing a few such deities into the Pantheon, namely the Freaks and Christiane Génessier. They are grateful and loyal to the Phantom, though they don't regard him as absolute or infallible, what with his odd quirks and propensity for the over-dramatic. The Phantom's favor also extends to Edward Scissorhands, Quasimodo and John Merrick, even though they don't like him so much due to his evil past. They understand he's suffered as much as them (and he shares with Edward and Quasimodo in particular the fact that they Did Not Get the Girl) and he's more or less reformed but he was still capable of killing a fair few people after all.
  • Being one of the most famous horror villains ever, quite a few others have followed his aesthetic. An example is the Great Fusilli, a theater-owning crocodile wearing an Ominous Opera Cape. Fusilli hoped that the Phantom would be willing to sponsor him once he realized their connections. Unfortunately for the crocodile, Erik termed his penchant for turning his actors into literal marionettes as "quite distasteful" and refused to support the crocodile in any way. After this, the Phantom has been know to occasionally ruin Fusilli's shows and maybe drop a chandelier on him, if available in the venue, to save people from becoming his puppets.
    • Erik proved to get along much better with the anarchist V, a man who was heavily disfigured by forced experimentation and went underground, becoming a sort of vengeful "ghost" and working to bring down the government who allowed it all. Erik thinks of V as an inspiring man who might actually convince him to take on an active role in the greater Pantheonic conflicts. V himself is also appreciative of Erik because of his brilliance on various subjects such as architecture, which could prove useful to V's schemes. Their interest in the arts and similarities between their love interests Christine and Evey have also provided plenty of discussion.
    • On a minor note, Dan once donned a similar outfit in order to force a terrible theater troupe to cease operations. Erik, ever a lover of the arts, approves and probably would have done the same if the theater troupe was as bad as claimed, but after taking a look at Dan he's decided he's not at all interested in being associated with someone so boorish and uncouth. Just as well, as Dan doesn't care one bit about the Phantom.
  • Is a notable player of an Ominous Pipe Organ and his presence tends to be heralded by such music. He was therefore interested to learn that a living pipe organ ascended as god of his preferred instrument. The pipe organ, known as Maestro Forte, turned out to be a man as passionate about music as the Phantom, so the two easily struck up a friendship over their shared interest. The Phantom is one of the few men Forte recognizes as skilled enough to play him. With that said, upon discussing Belle and the Beast they discovered there is a subject they disagree on strongly, which is love, as Forte loathes the concept, while the Phantom considers it that which saved his soul even if he didn't get Christine. He is thus fascinated by the story of Belle and the Beast, as he considers it identical to his relationship with Christine. Belle and the Beast are wary of him, though happy to know he had enough kindness in himself to let Christine go, which they see as proof that he felt true love for her.
  • He hates Frollo and Gaston due to their very unkind opinion of deformed/disfigured people, the former having convinced Quasimodo for a long time that he should be locked up forever, and the latter being convinced that he is a perfect specimen who deserves Belle over someone like the Beast. Erik also despises their entitled behavior toward Esmeralda and Belle, reminding him of how he was with Christine at his worst. Erik is a target of scorn and ridicule for Frollo and Gaston by their turn, especially after hearing of his sympathies towards their arch-nemeses. Therefore, Erik doesn't feel the need to hold back against them. He begrudgingly admits that Frollo's song "Hellfire" is a masterpiece, though.
  • James Marcus is a man who's a huge fan of opera and he enjoys the Phantom's work. While Erik was glad of this at first, he was fairly put off by Marcus' usage of opera to control his deadly leeches, and doesn't like the idea that this ability of Marcus' might taint other deities' perception of opera. Though it does make him wonder if he might be able to train the animals found in his underground passages (like, say, rats) to do the same.
  • His fame is such that he has a spot in the Throne of Heroes and can be summoned as a Servant of either the Assassin or Berserker classes. His Servant self is from a point where he is still extremely obsessed with Christine and has yet to learn his lesson, to the point where his insanity gave him the skill Mental Pollution, where he cannot understand or be understood by those who are not like him. The Phantom really hates this side of himself, to say the least. He's also more than a little annoyed that Servant Phantom is quite pretty and unblemished under the mask, as though the Phantom's Facial Horror doesn't mean anything despite being the reason his life was so awful and why he became the man he is now. To top this all off, the infamous murderer Gilles de Rais is fond of him as he also shares the same level of Mental Pollution. While Servant Phantom gets along well with him, the regular Phantom truly hates the man for the depths of his depravity, and because he and his master Ryuunosuke dare to call the unspeakable tortures they inflict on people 'art'.
