    Delirium 
Delirium, Accursed Deity of Erratic Shapeshifting
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/portrait_delirium.png
  • Greater Deity
  • Symbol: Itself while in its true form.
  • Theme Song: Delirium
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Eldritch Abomination, The Anthropomorphic Personification of Isaac's Dying Dream, Constantly Shapeshifting into every foe fought before it, Bullet Hell, Damage-Sponge Boss, Never holding still due to Teleport Spam, Final-Exam Boss
  • Domains: True Final Bosses, Hallucinations, Mental Breakdowns, Shapeshifting
  • Allies: Ultra Greed, Pyramid Head, Freddy Krueger, Nightmare (Kirby), Darkrai (Mystery Dungeon only)
  • Interests: Shang Tsung
  • Enemies: Isaac, Burroughs, Simon Henriksson, the rest of the House of Dreams
  • Not to be confused with: Delirium of the Endless
  • This melting skull-thing is the absolute True Final Boss of Isaac's journey into down below into the depths of the basement, or rather the depths of his mind. Encountered only in the Void, it is a physical representation of the boy's already deteriorating mental state as he slowly but surely suffocates himself in the toy chest out of self-hatred and penance for the trouble he thought he caused. It is, for all intents and purposes, Isaac's Delirium, and it shows through its complete inability to remain in a single form for long (even extending to the room or hell, the Void itself) and its Battle Theme Music being a heavy metal chaotic mess.
  • Delirium arrived after the truth of Isaac's journey had been revealed to the public of the Pantheon through a strange room in the House of Insanity. More entrances started appearing soon after with how common it is being determined by the mental state of the person in question. While initially avoided, after deities started accidentally wandered into it is what prompted more and more people to traverse them. The rooms turned out to portals leading to the Void, which somehow is even more misshapen and patchworked than it was when Isaac goes through it, each one mashed together with Isaac's floors and places familiar to the occupant in question.
  • Its status as one of the Final Bosses of Isaac's journey and shapeshifting abilities make it dangerous enough, but being in the Pantheon seemed to make the latter aspect especially worse. See, its shapeshifting abilities in the Dying Dream was dependent on the bosses Isaac fought and defeated. In the Pantheon this translates to any formidable foe beaten by Delirium's assailants. So if one kills god-like beings on the daily, there's a very good chance they'll show up as one of its "Delirious" forms especially as it Turns Red and keeps switching to more and more forms on top of the Bullet Hell and Weaponized Teleportation it brings.
    • As far as downsides go for Delirium's shapeshifting it doesn't seem to have any control over which form it goes to next and has a limited time in said form before the next. This means it can't utilize the forms complete arsenal nor can Delirium tailor itself as a counter to whoever fights it. Though it makes for it in the sheer hectic fight it brings.
  • Delirium's abilities have caught the attention of the wicked sorcerer Shang Tsung. He is someone who is also well versed in the art of shape shifting through stealing the souls of others, though Tsung has much more refined and controlled grip over his. Seeing the power behind Delirium he plans on somehow gaining its power though for now he sticks to manipulating Deilirium into fighting his enemies.
  • Thanks to its ascension it is no longer confined to the Void as Delirium at times wanders the Pantheon aimlessly through the many entrances, and can be a very nasty surprise to those unlucky enough who do encounter Delirium and its ability to teleport doesn't make things any easier either. As per her purpose and divine title, Burroughs makes the effort to warn anyone of Delirium's presence when it's nearby which it doesn't appreciate.
    • Besides the House of Shape, which is the House if currently resides in, Delirium has also been reported to have been in the House of Mentalism. It predominately lurks in the House of Dreams, alarming just about every deity residing there save for Nightmare (Kirby) and Freddy Krueger who think it's perfect for their plans for plaguing everyone with nightmares. Darkrai also is on using Delirium, though only his Mystery Dungeon incarnation does so. Normally, he's against Delirium too.
  • There are some it doesn't choose to attack on sight. As another Final Boss from Isaac's adventures, Delirium has this sort of kinship with Ultra Greed and had aided him on his off times from Greed Mode. The reason why Delirium doesn't do so there as well is because Ultra Greed reserves the job being Final Boss for himself and himself only. Delirium also gets along with Pyramid Head for the simple reason that they are hostile embodiments of something pertaining to the people they antagonize.
  • Simon heard of Delirium through Isaac himself and opposed the thing already. However, after going over the young boy's journey again along with his own it didn't take long for Simon connect the dots: Delirium is basically Isaac's version of Book Simon. For that, Simon has a lot more against Delirium than most.
  • For reasons relating to the lustful parts of the House of Love, there are depictions of Delirium being portrayed as a Slime Girl floating around. Some talk whether or not a certain artist in the House of Craft will get involved or not.

    Destoroyah 
Destoroyah, Deity of Metamorphosis Monsters (Destroyah, Destroyer, Dez)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/destoroyah_0.jpg
Destoroyah's final form
  • Greater Deity
  • Symbol: A silhoulette of itself
  • Theme Music: Its theme from Godzilla: Unleashed or Godzilla Generations: Maximum Impact
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Generic Doomsday Villain, Metamorphosis Monster, Micro-Oxygen Beam, Weak to Extreme Heat or Cold, Made up of Microscopic Organisms
  • Domains: Power, Forms, Monsters
  • Allies: King Ghidorah, Deathwing, Doomsday
  • Rivals: The Carapaceons
  • Enemies: Godzilla, Mothra Leo, Rodan, Anguirus, Wishiwashi, the ascended Ultramen, any hero capable of fire and/or ice powers
  • Possibly Interested in: SCP-169
  • When the first Godzilla attacked Japan in 1954, a weapon known as the Oxygen Destroyer was used to defeat him. This ended up having unforeseen consequences years later when microscopic crustaceans evolved thanks to exposure to the weapon. Their prescence became known once they attacked an aquarium and proceeded to attack larger targets thereafter. These smaller creatures are capable of combining themselves to form a larger, more dangerous creature. It is known as Destoroyah, one of Godzilla's toughest opponents in general thanks to a combination of power and sadism.
  • A bunch of creatures running amok throughout the Pantheon one day would only be the prelude to a much larger disaster. Someone witnessed these creatures merging to create a monster that began to destroy everything in its path. It took the intervention of Godzilla and a couple of his allies to stop Destoroyah from destroying the Pantheon and even then, the fight caused a ton of damage. Unlike the last time that Godzilla fought Destoroyah, Godzilla didn't die, but was in critical condition. Worse yet, Destoroyah wasn't actually destroyed like the first time it fought the Big G, as someone extremely vile managed to get it a place in the Pantheon so that it can continue its rampage as it likes.
  • Comparisons have been made between it and Doomsday, another powerful villain who originally showed up to give a hero a very hard fight. While Doomsday succeeded in killing Superman momentarily, Destoroyah fought Godzilla when the latter was undergoing a nuclear meltdown (and thus close to death). That didn't prevent Destoroyah from making things more difficult than it already was for Godzilla at the time. It's a fairly regular occurance to see Destoroyah and Doomsday together causing destruction and it takes quite a bit of time for anyone sent to battle the two together for the damage to stop.
  • Deathwing took great interest in Destoroyah, citing it as resembling an abomination that The Old Gods could come up with. Wanting to test Destoroyah's strength, Deathwing challenged it to a fight, leading to plenty of destruction in their wake wherever their battle took place. Some time later, Deathwing surmised that Destoroyah still harbored a grudge towards Godzilla. Given that Deathwing has battled against Godzilla a few times before, he seems very interested in getting Destoroyah's help in defeating The Big G. From there, the two are free to cause as much chaos and misery as possible should Godzilla be defeated at their hands. Destoroyah is more than willing to take up Deathwing's offer.
  • It could be seen as a darker counterpart to Wishiwashi, being a fusion of several smaller creatures. Unlike Wishiwashi where the small fish is very weak by itself but becomes stronger when more of its kind are around, Destoroyah's smaller forms are a decent enough problem as they are and becomes even more threatening when Destoroyah's final form is at play. Despite apparently not having any sort of interest in eating Wishiwashi, Destoroyah is just eager to kill it whenever the two end up meeting, prompting the school of fish to fight back even if Destoroyah is stronger than Wishiwashi.
  • The major weakness that it has is extreme temperatures, be it heat or cold, and the Pantheon has more than its share of deities capable of using either element. The Miser Brothers are among those that could potentially be a threat to the kaiju, but they already have their hands full in preventing The Shadow Monster (already a bigger threat than Destoroyah as is) from wrecking the Pantheon and Destoroyah already doesn't like the two as they are.
    • Shouto Todoroki is arguably a bigger problem for Destoroyah as he is one of very few deities capable of using both extreme cold and extreme heat effectively. Shouto was surprised after hearing about the kaiju and thought it was comparable to the Nomu designed by the League of Villains at first given its strength as a monster. While it was apparent that it would be challenging for Shouto to go up against a giant monster as the Nomus are already challenging to fight as is, he's willing to help stop it from causing extensive damage.
    • Given Destoroyah's weakness to heat and cold, there are some deities who are considering trying to trick Destoroyah into going to either the subareas for Ice & Cold or Fire & Heat given that these two sections have areas that are extremely cold or extremely hot respectively. Such an idea is very risky given how easy it is for Destoroyah to attack anyone that it sees.
  • Some believe that Destoroyah was involved as a creation of aliens in order to fight Godzilla. While its appearance gives off the impression of it being very alien-like, the kaiju hasn't come into contact with other aliens in the Pantheon. Some evil extraterrestrials have expressed interest in trying to use Destoroyah to conquer the Pantheon.
  • While it's a big crustacean as it is (particularly its final form), there are some other giant crabs in the form of four kinds of Carapaceons that the kaiju has gotten into fights with. The Carapaceons are, for the most part, docile unless provoked, meaning the fights that happen are a result of Destoroyah coming near them. There have been some who think that Shen Gaoren is just as big, if not bigger, than Destoroyah.
  • Destoroyah is already a big crustacean-like being as is, but SCP-169 is far bigger than the kaiju can ever be. What's frightening for many is that Destoroyah could go after SCP-169 at some point and it could happen when Godzilla ends up in a potential fight against The Leviathan. The fact that SCP-169 is merely dormant for the time being is the only consolation for many as it's highly uncertain if SCP-169 will actually want anything to do with Destoroyah.

    Gozer 
Gozer, Deity of Changing Forms To Suit Conformability (Gozer The Gozerian, Gozer The Destructor, Volguus Zildrohar, Gozer The Traveler, Lord Of The Sebouillia)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gozer.jpg
"Are you a god? Then DIE!"
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gozer_4.jpg
The Destructor's "chosen form".
  • Greater Deity
  • Symbol: The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (to Gozer’s chagrin)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Jerkass God, Eldritch Abomination, Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous, Red Eyes, Take Warning, Person of Mass Destruction, Evil Sounds Deep, Omnicidal Maniac, Voluntary Shapeshifting, Shapeshifter Mode Lock
  • Domains: Shapeshifting, Destruction, Cults
  • High Priests: The Contemelia
  • Heralds: Zuul and Vinz Clortho, Ivo Shandor, Cult of Gozer
  • Allies: Merged Zamasu, Yuuki Terumi, Nekron, Dark Danny, King Boo, Delirium, The Masked Mutant, Dagon, Ultraman Belial, The Shadow Monster
  • Rivals: Galactus, Envy, Mystique, Shang Tsung
  • Enemies: The Ghostbusters, Danny Phantom, Gilgamesh (Nasuverse), Tiamat (Nasuverse), the other Tiamat, Natsumi, Garfield Logan/Beast Boy, Kids of Hawkins, Nostalgia Critic, Divine Powers, YHVH, all the Autobots and Decepticons, The Silver Surfer
  • You know why ghosts showed up in New York during The '80s for the very first time? It was because of Gozer. An ancient being from another dimension, Gozer coming to Earth was foretold by the Sumarians and once Gozer came, it would destroy the entire planet. It was up to the Ghostbusters to deal with Gozer by crossing the streams, blowing up Gozer into bits of marshmallow. In the Pantheon, Gozer’s ascension was met by the House of Ghosts going haywire, signaling Gozer’s return. Who are you gonna call?
  • Gozer does not think fondly of how the entire Pantheon works. Gozer believes that giving mortals the moniker of godhood is really undervaluing the title has only acknowledged those who are actual divine beings as fellow gods. Though it’s not like many gods like Gozer that much either.
  • Enraged to find out the Ghostbusters arrived to the Pantheon ages before Gozer has. Gozer has sworn to take down all of them down, seeing as the Ghostbusters roster had expanded to an abnormal degree than last time checked.
  • No, Gozer is not a ghost. The ghosts appearing were due to them heralding Gozer’s imminent arrival. This is why Gozer has been banned from going near the House of Ghosts, as it makes the entire place goes haywire.
  • Who is the only person who is willing to be friends with Gozer? It is one of the few times Zamasu shows friendliness to another person. Since they are both deities who want nothing more than to eliminate everybody who isn’t like them or shares their mindset, they get along swimmingly. Though Zamasu has is reserves over Gozer’s genocidal attitude while he believes his attitude has more refinement to it. People who have seen the giant Stay Puft Marshmallow and Zamasu together, they have a chemistry that is not unlike two college roommates going out for a drink
  • Nekron seems to appreciate how Gozer operates and has allowed Gozer to join the Grand United Allianceof Destruction. Note though that being friends with Zamasu might have helped Gozer reach the position that it managed to. Nekron would like to place Gozer is frontlines more but being a giant marshmallow, worries Nekron on the effectiveness on how Gozer works.
  • Dark Danny is also friends with Gozer, being an evil person who only wants to cause as much destruction as possible. Dark Danny wonders if Gozer could even take on the Ghost King though now that Gozer is a marshmallow, that’s unlikely. Gozer does not take the underestimations that well.
  • King Boo is a rather goofier ghost who is also interested in Gozer though King Boo takes great effort to not upset Gozer, as Gozer’s presence makes King Boo much more berserk and somehow slightly stronger than normal.
  • Rather revered by other shapeshifters like Delirium and the Masked Mutant though they are quite disappointed over Gozer’s inability to shape itself out of its form. Not that it matters as even a giant Marshmallow Man could be seen as intimidating at the right scenario.
  • Dagon is another Eldritch Abomination from another dimension, so it comes to no surprise that the two are on speaking terms. They have a bit of a Friendly Rivalry on who gets to either conquer or destroy a new dimension first.
  • Ultraman Belial seems to acknowledge Gozer as a fellow herald of darkness and has offered to help when destroying other dimensions. Gozer still hasn’t really answered the question on this, thinking that it doesn’t need help but appreciates the offer. Perhaps Belial is merely trying his best to accumulate more allies.
  • Is rather impressed by the Shadow Monster’s domain. Being a fellow invader during The '80s, Gozer and the Shadow Monster have mutual respect towards each other and are fortunate enough to be coworkers.
  • Managed to form a very heated rivalry with Galactus over who has the better shapeshifting abilities. While [[what people see in Galactus depends on what they could comprehend, Gozer takes delight in shifting into forms people recognize or even take comfort in before revealing its true destructive nature. They also debated against how their methods of destruction work, as Galactus believes his reasons for destruction is Above Good and Evil while Gozer loves causing it For the Evulz. This made Gozer an outright enemy of the Silver Surfer for this, seeing Gozer as an even more omnicidal version of Galactus.
  • Being a Sumarian deity, Gilgamesh does not have a particular liking towards Gozer, viewing the being as just another big named god for him to take down. When Gozer wished for Gilgamesh to test those words, Gil responded by using Ea and rendering Gozer into piles of mush. Gozer has since sworn to eliminate Gilgamesh though most likely would repeat the same fate once more.
  • Has a sister, Tiamat. Tiamat and Gozer are apparently equal in power though Tiamat in all likelihood is stronger due to not being a freaking snack. Gozer was angered by the idea there are two goddesses sharing its sister’s name and has sworn to fight them. Gozer held off against the lesser Tiamat well though the Beast of Humanity one proceeded to gobble Gozer’s body up like it was nothing. Gozer could be seen screaming and running as only a torso afterward.
  • Does not have a particular liking to towards Danny Phantom that much. As it is Danny’s job to defeat malevolent ghosts, it makes sense that Gozer seems to be pretty high up on the list of baddies for him to take down.
  • Nostalgia Critic seems to be rather obsessed with one of Gozer’s prophets, Zuul. Whenever Zuul shows up to aid Gozer, Nostalgia Critic is surely seen screaming, “ZUUL MOTHERFUCKER ZUUL.” For no particularly reason. At least somehow acknowledges one of its minions...
  • Has refused to join the Divine Powers out of pretense that the Divine Powers want to put an end to Gozer’s rampages and let mortals live. This may be in part of Zamasu trying to dissuade Gozer from joining as much as he can. Allying itself with YHVH is also a negative, as YHVH merely makes all others his servants, regardless of what gods they are. Well, Zamasu is not wrong about that one.
  • Has fought against both Decepticons and Autobots. We are not making this up in the slightest. Decepticons note that Gozer is such a strong entity, their scanners went off the charts. Autobots just had the poor chance on meeting Gozer as well eventually, which they were helped by the Ghostbusters on taking Gozer down.

  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Autobot insignia
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: The Big Guy, Turning his kibble into a chair, Alien Arts Are Appreciated, Clumsy But Smart, Unintentional Destruction whilst Saving, Fun big guys that you don't want to mess with, Mighty Glacier
  • Domains: Technology, Good, Sizes
  • Herald: Miko Nakadai
  • Followers: Hot Shot, Hightower, Superion
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • While some people remember him as an old but experienced coot not unlike Ironhide, Bulkhead is usually a big hulking Autobot with an even bigger heart. Bulkhead started out his life in the Cybertronian outskirts at an Energon farm, passing the time by reading up on space bridge technology. When the time came to join boot camp, he had difficulty making friends there until he was placed under Optimus Prime for his expertise in said space bridge tech. When the war broke out, he and the other Autobots escaped to Earth but the Decepticons followed suit as well, prompting the Autobots to bring the fight to them. Throughout his journey, Bulkhead learnt to appreciate Earth's culture through his friendship with Sari Sumdac and her showing him the planet's art while coping with his propensity to destroy things unintentionally.
  • The big lug can transform into either a six-wheeled armoured patrol vehicle or an SUV, and is more than able to use the extra bits (or kibble) left over from his transformation. As per the wise words of Bumblebee, "Bulkhead can turn his kibble into a chair, and that's awesome enough to earn him a spot in the Pantheon!" The Judges weren't convinced, so Optimus elaborated that not a lot of Cybertronians utilise their kibble as something useful and Bulkhead actually bothers to. Eventually, the Judges were convinced and had him ascended.
    • He was supposed to ascend at the same time as Wheeljack, a fellow Wrecker, but he conveniently forgot.
  • Optimus and Bumblebee were the first ones to greet him. He is surprised that they have other forms from their multiverse they can take and took a while to get used to their default G1 forms, but Bulkhead is a little puzzled on why Bumblebee has forms that muted his speech and spoke through the radio as a compensation even when Bee said it hasn't fazed him ever. As for the other Autobots, he's a little bummed that they don't assume their forms of his world but he later get used to it; he started to like Jazz better when he's having more fun dancing to music, was surprised Hot Rod is not that different last time he saw him and the same goes for Grimlock, only somewhat more stubborn. Then there's the Maximal Dinobot, who enjoys Shakespeare sonnets and while he's not for sophisticated culture, Bulkhead does tries to understand why Dinobot would enjoy them and Dinobot likewise aside from reducing his poetic talk, also watches Bulkhead's behaviour in battle in order to help minimize damage.
    • And of course, Bulkhead is obviously not pleased with seeing the Decepticons again, most of them old and a few being new with familiar forms. Either way, he'll not be playing nice to them ever and likewise, they don't like seeing him either. Another face Bulkhead doesn't like seeing is Lockdown, ever since he threaten his fellow Autobots the last time and Lockdown himself is determined to scrap Bulkhead and hang some part of him in his base. Bulkhead will also join in the fight against Unicron, who Bulkhead will admit is one scary dude to face and Unicron himself sees him as nothing more than another insect to stomp.
  • Like the others when he ascended, Bulkhead can access alternate forms from other universes on top of memories from them; he's somewhat weirded out that he started off as an Old Soldier in a previous world though he stopped questioning it later on. He also has a G1 incarnation, though he usually doesn't use that form a lot.
  • Bulkhead then meet up with fellow big guys of other teams like Toa Onua and Chewbacca, with Onua hoping to give Bulkhead pointers on minimizing collateral damage and Chewbacca joining in Bulkhead's fights. Gentle Giants like the Big Friendly Giant, Ferdinand and Clifford also appreciates Bulkhead's presence and understand his fears and concerns of accidentally destroying while going around, with Bulkhead enjoying playing with Ferdinand and Clifford (while hoping not to squish them) and the BFG helping him quell said fears and concerns. And finally, those who are robust yet strong like Edmond Honda and Big the Cat gets his appreciation and the two likewise can see he's not a bad guy, with Honda currently finding a way to accomodate Bulkhead into his hot springs even though Bulkhead politely turns a day in it down (cause he's a robot and all) and Big invites him over for fishing, an activity he can get behind.
  • Bulkhead is interested in Earth's art and culture ever since Sari has shown him a lot of stuff. Astral approaches him one day, hoping that another alien who had spent more time experiencing Earthly culture can show him even more stuff to enjoy; Bulkhead is more than happy to show him, and even more so when they both are smarties in some fields of knowledge.
  • The Junkers, Junkrat & Roadhog picked a fight with Bulkhead one day at his temple, hoping to both destroy him for parts and getting a good fight. Unfortunately for them, Bulkhead became pissed beyond belief and beaten them until they're totally incapacitated and their surroundings was more demolished than normal. Since then, both parties have a bone to pick with each other and Bulkhead voluntarily help the Master Builders Four fix the damages to make it up, with a lukewarm reception.
  • Later on, Bulkhead approached Gaige once the dust settled, and was surprised that he ascended at the same time as she did. They hanged out for a while discussing technology when Peni inserts herself into their conversation which then lasts for another hour, cementing Gaige and Peni's relationship with Bulkhead. It helps that they remind him of Sari and Niko, the latter of whom is currently serving as his Herald and is also in touch with the two. Gaige and Bulkhead even bonded over making collateral damage by accident and being geniuses at a second glance.
  • "Team Prime knows when to use force, and how much to use."

    Lucius the Eternal 
Lucius The Eternal, God of Clones through Conversion (Champion of Slaanesh, Luscious Lucius, Captain of the Emperor's Children 13th Company, Soulthief, Fulgrim's Champion, Blades of Aeon, Scion of Chemos, The Sickest Fuck in the Galaxy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lucius_the_eternal_6th_ed.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His eternally screaming armor and The Lash of Torment
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Master Swordsman, Whip It Good, Delighting In The Elegance Of Combat, Covered in Scars, Used To Look MUCH Better, Psychopathic Manchild, Returning After He's Killed And Turning His Killer Into Clone Of Himself, The Screaming Faces On His Armor Are Those Who Killed Him, Loves Causing And Receiving Pain, Slasher Smile, Put the "Laughter" in "Slaughter", Creepy Long Tongue, Not A Hair On His Head, The Dreaded
  • Domains: Sadomasochism, Chaos, Immortality, Insanity, Conversion
  • Heralds: The vast majority of The Emperor's Children
  • Allies: Slaanesh (His superior), Abaddon The Despoiler, AM, Slan, Sergei, Molag Bal
  • Rivals: Agent Smith, Mongul
  • Enemies: The Imperium of Mankind, The Houses of Love and Combat, Fused Zamasu, Kenshiro, Vegeta, Akeno Himejima, Issei Hyodo, Judge Claude Frollo, Gabriel Belmont, Zero
  • One day, Slaanesh was becoming rather jealous of how Khorne and Nurgle had managed to ascend their respective mortal Champions to godhood in order to further the influence of Chaos within the Pantheon. That was when The God of Excess decided to bring for his/her/its favorite Space Marine into the fold, knowing what torment now awaited the forces of good. But Slaanesh decided to make this ascension...peculiar.
  • Making Lucius The Eternal appear in the Pantheon, Slaanesh directed him towards the House of Love to start a night of debauchery, leading to the deaths of many visitors. A lone god managed to defeat Lucius in single combat and even slay him, but that was when things started to take a turn for the worst. In the coming days, this god started to turn bald, scars appeared all over his body, his tongue reached unnatural lengths and his body started to contort into a familiar shape. Before anything could be done, the god had become Lucius The Eternal, granting the champion of Slaanesh proper Godhood.
  • Ever since the fate of the last person who became Lucius, the Pantheon had discovered how this resurrection process works. Whenever someone feels even a sliver of pride for having defeated him, they will become him, even if the corpse of the previous Lucius is still around. It is why it has been decided that if Lucius ever has to be killed in a more permanent matter, the act should be done by either an Overdeity who could do it without a second thought or by a god who is incapable of emotion. So far, none have been willing to take the risk.
  • Because of the condition of his resurrection, nobody in the House of Combat wants Lucius anywhere near them. This upsets the Champion of Slaanesh greatly, since he lives for a Worthy Opponent to fight. It's been speculated that Kenshiro, who's overall disgusted by the depravity the forces of Chaos, might be able to off Lucius without any pride or joy, simply desiring someone as awful as Lucius to be dead. However the Chaos Space Marine countered by arguing he would feel a sense of pride in the form of the Catharsis Factor. Just to be safe, Kenshiro's trying to train himself to better fight as The Stoic and avoid such a calamity.
  • Those screaming faces on his mask? People who killed him and are now stuck in an embrace of anguish and ecstasy. It's the primary reason why he's The Dreaded among the House of Combat. It's also why AM is so invested in Lucius. Lucius sees him more of Khorne's machine, given his absolute hatred for everything, but has enough of Slaanesh's traits(namely overwhelming sadism) to tolerate.
  • The House of Love, for the most part, has a negative view on anything Slaaanesh considers to be "love", though Lucius is more interested in being a Combat Aestheticist over sex. Not that he doesn't appreciate mixing a bit of both. Sergei was interested in working with Lucius given their similar views on the matter of lust and combat. He thought Hisoka might be interested, but he wasn't because he disagrees with his views. At best, he sees people as prey worth sparing for so he could kill them when they reach their highest potential and will ally with them for his benefits. At worst, he will kill you because they’re either boring, weak, and now their highest potential that he wants to kill them.
  • He has a creepy interest in Akeno Himejima due to her view of Sex Is Violence and Issei Hyodo for for his powers of perversion, due to what they could do for Slaanesh. Unsurprisingly they want nothing to do with him. Frollo, in denial of his lust, thought Lucius was a demon from hell sent to tempt him.
  • It is not known what would happen if Lucius was killed in pride by someone with Complete Immortality, but it's assumed that if they can't overpower his spirit they'll become another face on his armor. Zamasu was disgusted to see such a sinful being representing Chaos having a form of immortality, all while ignoring his own evil. No-one wants him to try and kill him because if Lucius succeeds at taking him over, all hell might break loose if Infinite Zamasu is something he inherits.
  • Due to the similar yet opposite methods of revival Lucius and the Mage of the Beginning have, they avoid each other like the plague. Because of the nature of his revival, he's avoided by the House of Pride, particularly Vegeta of whom Lucius considers a Worthy Opponent. Vegeta is simply too disgusted to reciprocate that feeling. Agent Smith was somewhat of an exception, being that he has his own method of Clone by Conversion and was interested in Lucius'. However the Scion of Chemo was quick to remind Smith that his assimilation only works in the Matrix.
  • Lucius' resurrection still requires his soul, so soul-killing methods are the only certain way to make sure he doesn't possess you. Gabriel Belmont's Vampire Killer, as it can kill souls, makes him rather vulnerable to him. He is also vulnerable to Zero since there's nothing suggesting he can take over robots and Zero is skilled at close quarter battles.
  • In his spare time, he tends to make Youtube videos in the Warp, pranking anything that comes along. Of course, being who he is, his " Bomb-ass pranks" involves sexual harassment, stalking, force-feedings and a whole bunch of other messed up activities that gets him off. At least the pranks are real, though.
  • As a champion of Slaanesh, most think he's a serious Memetic Molester and Lucius will make jokes about penetrating the "rear armor" of anything and anyone with his Rod of Torment....while shouting OH YEAH like the Kool Aid Man. As an ally of Slaanesh, Molag Bal was fond of him and his depravity, seeking him as a champion. The Prince was at one point accused of granting The Eternal some of his servants to help him. The Daedric Prince himself did not bother to deny said rumors but instead went ahead to say something along the lines of "Why should I stop there?"
  • To this day, he keeps claiming that there is nothing that can make you more beautiful and perfect than giving yourself to Slaanesh. But considering how his fall to Chaos led from him to going from this to this, many question his definition of "Beautiful and Perfect."

T-1000 Advanced Prototype, God of Voluntary Shapeshifting

  • Opposed by: The House of Justice
  • In the War of the Machines, SKYNET has sought to create the ultimate Infiltrator unit; someone who can perfectly imitate a human. The T-600 models were a start, but their rubber skin gave them away. The T-800 having actual human skin was a start, but they were still limited in power and could be reporgrammed. Thus, the T-1000 Advanced Prototype was created, capable of forming knives and stabbing weapons, being nigh-indestructible and a master of Voluntary Shapeshifting. To better hunt down all mankind, SKYNET has petitioned and ascended the T-1000.
  • His preferred normal form is that of a non-descript police officer. When he was reborn in the pantheon, he was Naked on Arrival and decided to steal equipment from the House of Justice. They managed to kick him out and have warned him not to enter again, with dogs guarding the entry. The Dark Judges don't mind however, in hopes he might contribute to the extinction of humanity. It's worth noting that the T-1000 isn't the most loyal of models; he's nigh-impossible to reprogram, has a limited range of emotions and a will of his own. He's been designed with a sadistic tendency towards humans and conceited since of superiority against them, in hopes of keeping him loyal against his own will. The T-1000 hasn't entertained thoughts of turning against SKYNET yet, but would like to remind them that he is no slave.
  • With his entry, the T-1000 has been surveying the robots in the pantheon for potential allies. So far he's become a good friend to Metal Sonic, Lumine and Bender. He admires their willfulness and desire to dominate/destroy humans, especially the first two(that, and they're mimicking robots like himself). As for Bender, while he thinks he's being lazy on the "kill all humans" front, he does like his in-your-face attitude and often drinks with him. Then there's the Sentinel, who he feels is oddly similar to his fellow Terminators and has gotten him "employed."
  • Though the House of Shape is his home, it is the sub-house of Disguises he has the most fondness for. He bonded with SA-X, and is trying to understand how Octo-Dad's Paper-Thin Disguise works. He has run afoul of fellow shapeshifting robot Axl, whom he considers an inferior model. Has a fondness for the House of Hunters, and will sometimes earn some money working for them. He's also really impressed by how much of an Implacable Man Pyramid Head is.
  • Having ascended, he expected John Connor to be in the pantheon. Though he hasn't ascended prior to the T-1000, his parents did. With the T-800 also in the pantheon, he hopes to get back at them for foiling the second attempt to terminate John Connor. Tried to invade the House of Time and Space, only to run afoul of Future Trunks. The T-1000 is wondering whether he and Android 16 are related to Kyle Reese and the T-800.
  • As he seeks to destroy all humanity, he's gotten an alliance of convenience with Black Hand. The T-1000 isn't a living being, so Nekron's herald sees no issue with him.
  • Has been updated on the existence of more advanced Infiltrator units. He's impressed by the T-1001 for both being a better shapeshifter and ability to assume non-humanoid forms, while applauding her more independent nature. He's not as impressed as the T-X however; sure, she's got advanced technological weapons at her disposal, but the T-1000 believes his more simple versatility is the best for their job.
  • Was intrigued with Beast Boy's ability to transform into animals, and is currently seeking to kidnap and experiment on him in hopes of being the basis for a new model of Infiltrator Unit.
  • Despite his versatility, the T-1000 has some major weaknesses. As living metal, he has no way to defend himself against strong acids (as another T-1000 learned fatally) or immense heat; the former of which killed a fellow model, the latter of which ended his own existence in panicked shapeshifting. Though most in the Houses of Fire & Heat and Toxicity aren't strong enough, Syzoth, Alexstrasza and Ragnaros are. He's currently trying to terminate Syzoth, but isn't willing to antagonize Alextrasza or Ragnros. He can't self-terminate, after all.
  • Though extreme cold can't kill him, it will put him out of commission until he can be heated up. Even then, it causes his disguise to glitch out and make his job a lot harder. He considers putting Kuai Liang on his termination list because of this, though knows its foolhardy to go against Kaldr. Avoids Magneto like the plague; he's seen what the Master of Magnetism did to Wolverine, and if anything he'd be dominated far worse. He also realizes it's a poor idea to fight Ellen Ripley unless absolutely necessary, as she'll put everything in her power to annihilate him.
  • Should be worth noting that he's only able to disguise himself in humanoid form, since he can't change his mass. Not that he really cares, since most of the gods in the pantheon have that shape anyway.
  • Considers Alex Mercer a rival in the field of Kill and Replace shape-shifting, envying his ability to ignore the conservation of mass.
  • As humanoid liquid metal, the T-1000 is almost impossible to take out with physical attacks. Key word, "almost"; he believed this trait would make him immune to Saitama's punches, only to be proven horribly mistaken. He has sworn revenge of Saitama for this humiliation.
  • The T-1000 has a crush on fellow slime assassin Melona, though it's probably not going to go anywhere. Melona wonders why he doesn't shapeshift more often into a total hunk, but the T-1000 has stated "I prefer my disguises with more subtlety."
  • Sounds like Sokka's sword master, who once said that your sword is part of yourself.
  • For some reason, Mulder and Scully seem to recognize the T-1000 and at times will even ask for help during their investigation. The android usually politely dismisses the requests.

Lesser Gods

  • Lesser God (referred to as male, Quasideity in his true form)
  • Symbol: An ouroboros with a Sickly Green Glow. Alternatively, his true form
  • Theme: Mortal Sin
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, bordering on Stupid Evil
  • Portfolio: Homunculi, Extreme Androngyny, Using his Shapeshifting to Torture His Opponents, Ax-Crazy, The Brute, Sadism, Boisterous Weakling, Eldritch Abomination, Psychopathic Manchild, Hybrid Monster, Clipped-Wing Angel forms, Making Dog-Kicking and -raping a Hobby, Faux Affably Evil, The Sociopath, Dirty Coward, Loves to Gloat About His Actions, Starting the Ishvalan Civil War by Killing a Child, Extremely Jealous of Humans Because of a Desire to Be Like Them, Took His Own Life to Not be Pitied by Humans
  • Domains: Madness, Hatred, Shape, Envy
  • High Priest: Double Trouble
  • Superiors: Father and Dante (Fullmetal Alchemist)
  • Allies:
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Esdeath, Team Rocket, Zaheer, Raven Darkholme/Mystique
  • Enemies:
  • Fears: Any fire-wielding gods
  • Envy the Jealous was the fourth homunculus created by Father, serving as his chief spy and instigator. It was by Envy's hand that the Ishvalan Civil War started, along with being the one who murdered Maes Hughes. Much like Pride, Envy laid low before showing his true form to the Pantheon during the Team Rainbow Rocket crisis. Many have become paranoid if the people they were talking to were the real thing or Envy in disguise.
  • Even in the Pantheon, nobody knows what Envy's true gender is. The only known hint is an alternate universe version of him that turned out to be the Elrics' eldest brother, but he himself doesn't acknowledge this version of himself (partially out of jealousy). For simplicity's sake, he's referred to as a male.
  • Upon appearing in his true form, Envy went to the House of War to taunt Roy Mustang about his arrival in the Pantheon. Mustang replied accordingly, and Envy hightailed it out of there.
  • Both Edward and Alphonse Elric were shocked by Envy's ascension, and have taken the time to alert their allies about it. Among the first to be informed were the deities of the Avatar universe. Avatar Aang was horrified to learn how Envy murdered a child to launch a bloody civil war, going so far as to compare him with Fire Lord Ozai in terms of sheer cruelty. His views are echoed by his friends, Katara and Sokka especially since they know what war can do to the innocent, and Zuko intends on sending the homunculus back as a fried corpse.
    • As for Korra and her friends, they are wary of the new shapeshifter, especially since Greed gave the low down to Lin and Tenzin. They were on the lookout for Envy, only to discover him one day lying on the ground, his body twitching uncontrollably. Later on, it was discovered that Envy had encountered Asami Sato and after initially mistaking her for Lust, decided to attack…with disastrous results (she had her gloves on the entire time). That said, the attack has made Republic City a much more dangerous place to traverse at night, but Korra's just glad Asami wasn't injured.
    • When Envy found Zaheer, he praised the Airbender for assassinating the Earth Queen, and causing the Earth Kingdom to dissolve into chaos. But it all went downhill from there. Zaheer has nothing but contempt toward the homunculi, considering them just as bad as the other forms of government.
    Zaheer: "When the rest of the Pantheon has fallen, The Red Lotus will be coming for you and your Father."
  • Upon actually finding Lust and Gluttony, Envy was more than happy to reunite with them. The trio have since resumed their old method of operations, with Lust taking the lead and Envy and Gluttony providing support via espionage and brute force. On occasion, they team up with Jessie, James and Meowth to provide them with tips and tricks on how to be better criminals. Though Envy despises the Team Rocket trio, he does find it amusing when they go blasting off into the sky.
    • The same cannot be said for Greed. Both homunculi have been seen trading insults to one another, but almost always, Greed wins the verbal war. It may be helped by the fact that Greed knows where Envy's "sweet buttons" are.
  • His relationship with Dante is... complicated. In the universe Dante originally came from, Envy was the homunculus of her deceased son with Hohenheim of Light. To put it simply, Envy was disgusted by the fact he was once human, and while he's willing to take orders from her, he's made it clear that FATHER is the one in charge, not her. To that, all Dante did was smile.
    Dante: "Be careful of what you say, Envy. You may not have the weaknesses of my world, but one word is all it can take to put you out of your pathetic existence."
  • Both Terumi and Nui are fond of the guy, mostly because of his absolute sadism, but also because of his use of disguises to fuck others over, which they've also used themselves. They eventually made him an honorary member of Trollkaiger as a result.
  • Upon his ascension, Envy declared his allegiance to Millennium. This greatly pleases the Major, as both of them are war-mongering deities who are in it For the Evulz. Envy has ventured to the Hellsing manor to defeat its main trio but each time ended with disastrous results.
    • Alucard: The fellow shape-shifter educates Envy on how a real shapeshifter does battle. Needless to say, Envy ran off screaming and crying before being consumed by the Baskerville hellhound.
    • Seras Victoria: Gets his head scraped along the wall like a cheese-grater by an enraged Seras after shapeshifting into Pip Bernadotte to taunt her.
    • Integra Hellsing: Gets pelted with bullets until he can no longer regenerate from his wounds.
  • In the rare occasion that Envy wants to fight seriously, he transforms into a monstrous green creature, much bigger than he normally is. In reality, it's a much easier target to hit, and Envy mostly relies on throwing his weight around to do damage, so he tries to keep that a secret.
  • Upon the discovery that he was the one who instigated the Ishval War, Envy has been banned from the House of Children, and his shapeshifting powers are put under heavy watch if he ever goes near it. That being said, the homunculus gets along with other ruthless war mongers such as Sundowner, Millennium and Gregor Clegane.
  • He has approved of Griffith's actions in his home universe, and in doing so gained a dangerous enemy in the form of Guts. Their encounter was truly a sight to behold, not even his alternate form could save Envy from being killed by the Black Swordsman. Multiple times. Nowadays, he keeps his distance.
    • Also has formed a Villainous Friendship of sorts with Wyald, especially as the two are both psychopathic manchildren who constantly have a need for stimulation and kick and rape puppies whenever and wherever they can.
    • Similarly, while Envy's position in the High Command has made Night Raid wary of him, what truly put him on their shitlist was when he approved of the Wild Hunt's actions, even going as far as to consider them role models.
  • At one point, he decided to pick on Scorpion by shapeshifting as his family to taunt him. The revenant ninja was livid and unleashed his Toasty on him in retaliation. Envy has since stayed far away from Scorpion.
  • He mistook Stitches for some failed prototype homunculus after hearing that he was made out of several corpses, but after things got cleared up, the two got along well with each other. It helps that they have the same personality.
  • Many superheroes have come to be Envy's enemies, Spider-Man, in particular, due to how humble he is. Both the Flash and Wolverine are hostile towards the homunculus, considering their history with Reverse-Flash and Mystique respectively, and Batman has compared him to the Joker. The last comment Envy takes as a bit of a compliment.
    • Even though they've been seen working together, and both possessing similar shapeshifting capabilities, Mystique hates Envy due to being a mother herself, and hearing about the events of Ishval doesn't help much. Both the Joker and Reverse-Flash though think the homunculus is a great manipulator and psychological torturer, seeing a bit of themselves in there.
  • Has become mildly fascinated by Shang Tsung's ability to not only shapeshift, but also perfectly replicate his opponents fighting styles. The only thing stopping Envy from approaching the sorcerer is the fireballs he generates.
  • He struck it off well with Ramsay Bolton, due to their shared sadistic nature and interests in psychological torture. Envy has even joined in on occasion on some of Ramsay's hunts, usually disguising himself as one of the victims to confuse or torment his "companions".
  • Envy's sadism had caught the attention of Esdeath, and while she found it admirable, she got livid upon hearing of his shape-shifting powers, as a shapeshifter had killed her teammate Bols. After a one-sided battle, Esdeath found Envy to be a waste of her time. Envy has sworn to get back at her, but the Jaeger pays no mind to him. It does not help that Esdeath is a member of King Bradley's High Command, irking Envy even further.
  • He and Axl don't like each other. Partially because of their similar powers, and partially because they sound like one another. Envy has also found an enemy in the form of Eiji Hino/Kamen Rider OOO. When they first encountered one another, Eiji was reminded a lot of Uva, the Insect Greeed, both in terms of personality and for being a homunculus. To be compared to an insect sent Envy into a fit of rage. At the end of the day, both rider and homunculus ended in a draw, with Envy vowing revenge in their next battle. Eiji's looking forward to settling the score.
  • Was furious to learn of a universe where he and his fellow homunculi (minus Wrath) were resurrected as humans by Selim Bradley. Doubly so because Edward Elric grew in the six years following the Promise Day, making Envy the pipsqueak.
  • Really hates fire. It brings back some nasty memories.
  • With Envy's ascension, the only homunculus remaining is Sloth. Father has taken this into consideration, eventually making Sloth his herald as Dante had been previously... And now he is a god.
  • Also present in Mind Games.

    The Masked Mutant 
The Masked Mutant, God Of Getting Done In by His Shape-Shifting (Libby Zacks, Captain Bob)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maskedmutant.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Symbol: An issue of his comic book
  • Portfolio: Stepped out of a comic to threaten reality, Voluntary Shapeshifting, A Manipulative Bastard with a talent for deception, Blood Knight,Card-Carrying Villain because it's essentially his purpose to be, Views a 12 year old as his nemesis, Will distintegrate henchmen at the drop of a hat, Evil Is Petty and Hammy, Trouble shifting liquids because he can only form solids, Goaded into becoming acid due to his own impulsiveness, Evil Redhead (in his Libby form)
  • Allies: Judge Doom, Turbo, Slappy The Dummy, Envy The Jealous, Pride The Arrogant
  • Enemies: Deadpool, Buddy Baker, Adam West, Po the Panda, The Crimson Chin
  • Rivals: Zim
  • Heralds: Chinchilla, Root-Rot, Pinkie Flamingo
  • Within his own universe, this evil being was the star of a comic book popular among kids like young Skipper Matthews. One day, Skipper stumbled across the Mutant's lair and was soon strung along by a girl named "Libby" actually the villain in the form of a fellow comic fan. Just when it seemed he had his so called "greatest foe" cornered, the boy tricked the maniac into assuming a form he couldn't shift back from-Sulfuric Acid. Having finally reassembled himself, the Masked Mutant is eager for more worthy foes to challenge.
  • Although initially envious of fellow Goosebumps deity Slappy given how much more attention he gets from their creator, the Mutant does have to credit the dummy for his more diabolical feats, especially in spite of his size. Together, the evil duo enjoy spreading chaos and fear with the Mutant's shape-changing and Slappy's knack for framing people.
  • He's excited to have some worthy heroes to challenge, especially compared to the bumbling cowardly buffoons of his home dimension. To Buddy Baker's dismay, he's attracted the Mutant's attention for his similar fourth-wall exploits and mimicry powers.
  • Do not bring up his humiliating defeat by a 12 year old comic fan. Deadpool enjoys riffing him for this, as well as being a dated 90s parody, and much to the Mutant's chagrin, keeps coming back no matter how he kills him.
  • Very few are willing to work with him given his lack of regard for his minions. However, he does get along with Judge Doom, a fellow shape-shifting madman who stepped out of sequential art. The Mutant especially admires his "Dip" which he'd love to use on Skipper/Elastic Boy should they cross paths again...
  • The Homunculi Pride and Envy have complimented the way he uses his shape-shifting to screw with humans, and in turn the Mutant is intriqued by the humanoids. He's also interested in how he can screw over Edward Elric and Colonel Mustang by impersonating their loved ones.
  • Zim was once challenged by the crazed Mutant, who recognized his voice and thought he was Elastic Boy in disguise. The ensuing fight ended in a draw, as both combatants were far too impulsive and caught up in their villain gloating to ensure a clear victory. Despite the situation being cleared up, the Mutant now sees the alien as competition in world domination. Fortunately, both are far too arrogant to really advance their plans efficiently.
  • The Crimson Chin, having few adventures of himself out of the comic book every once in a while has every reason to be enemies with the Masked Mutant such as assaulting real and innocent people and being no better than Nega-Chin. The Mutant himself for once thought he finally have an equal in comic book characters coming to life, and while disappointed it's not a fellow villain he still get to fight a hero for once.
  • Slappy introduced him to Po, who the Mutant took an immediate disliking to. It probably doesn't help that the panda reminds him of Skipper in certain ways.
  • Despite being an obvious X-Men homage and possibly a mutant himself, Magneto has no interest in working with or recruiting him. For all his grandiosity, the Masked Mutant is a petty Psychopathic Manchild who wastes all his resources trying to kill a twelve year old, and thus would give his Brotherhood a bad name.
  • For a comic character come to life, the Masked Mutant ironically has no known origin. Given he's aware of his true nature, it doesn't seem to bother him that much, and he speculates one was probably never written for him anyway.

    Natsumi 
Natsumi, Goddess of Empathic Shapeshifting (Witch)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/adult_natsumi.png
Click here to see her true form 
  • Lesser Goddess (Intermediate Goddess with Haniel)
  • Theme Song: "Bipolar Emotion"
  • Portfolio: Flying Broomstick, Uses an Idealized Female Form, Attractive Adult, Cute Child, Can Turn People Into Children, Master of Disguise, Still Beautiful in Her True Form
  • Alignment: True Neutral with Good tendencies
  • Domain: Shapeshifting, Love, Playfulness, Sarcasm, Self-loathing
  • Allies: Shido Itsuka, Tohka Yatogami, Origami Tobiichi, Kotori Itsuka, Yoshino Himekawa, Miku Izayoi, Mana Takamiya, Mayuri, Dark Magician Girl, Hermione Granger, Minerva McGonagall, Zatanna, Nine the Phantom, Betty Suarez, Billy Batson/Shazam, Kiki, Kagura, Merlin, Marisa Kirisame, Schierke
  • Enemies: Sir Isaac Ray Pelham Westcott, Lord Voldemort, Sauron, the Evil Queen, Mother Gothel, Mystique, Envy, Alessi, Shang Tsung
  • Natsumi was just a young girl who wanted to be accepted and praised by others, but she was always ignored and rejected. Upon becoming a Spirit, she finally got the chance to fulfill her dream and used her powers to attain a become a beautiful woman. When she met Shido Itsuka, she thought she had discovered her true form and attempted to ruin her life. Fortunately, Shido saved Natsumi when she was in danger and she allowed him to seal her powers, wanting to be accepted by people as her real self.
  • Natsumi's adult form is actually a response to how she perceives the world after several visits on Earth in the past. Shido persuades her to grow out of it and stay true to herself, although she's not above using it to tease others or when she is forced into a battle.
  • Shido and the other Spirits welcomed Natsumi into the Pantheon with open arms. Natsumi deeply appreciates the Spirits' friendship, as they were the ones who accepted her as her real self and taught her that True Beauty Is on the Inside. Natsumi feels really attached to Kotori Itsuka and Yoshino for sharing the same age as her.
  • Natsumi's magic allows her to transform objects into whatever she desires. She can turn dangerous explosives into comical items and transform a person's body in order to remove injuries, although she admits this is just temporary and the person would still need medical aid. Both Hermione Granger and Minerva McGonagall find this power fascinating and think it must be an exotic form of Transfiguration.
  • Intimidated by the beauty of the Dark Magician Girl, to the point she mostly uses her adult form to talk to her. Fortunately, the Dark Magician Girl has been nothing but supportive for Natsumi in her attempts to become accepted in her true form. Natsumi also became friends with Betty Suarez, who had to endure countless insults in her work at a fashion magazine. She even offered to use her powers to enhance Betty's attractiveness, but Betty declined, because she never felt any need to change any part of herself. She loved herself, exactly as she was.
  • Supports Nine the Phantom on her path to redemption. At least Nine did what she did because she wanted to protect her sister, Natsumi attempted to ruin Shido's life just to secure her own loneliness. Nine, on her part, understands where Natsumi is coming from and urges her not to do the same mistakes she did.
  • Enemies with Isaac Westcott, as it was under his orders that Ellen Mira Mathers tried to kill her. Not too fond of Voldemort, either, as he says Natsumi's powers as a key to regaining his beautiful looks. He may hate looking like his Muggle father, but he does admit that obtaining Natsumi's powers could be useful in gathering more followers. Sauron also set his sights on Natsumi, for he too was interested in taking her shapeshifting powers for himself. She also tries to put as much distance from the Evil Queen as she is able, seeing the Evil Queen as the person she would have become had Shido not saved her. She also hates Mother Gothel for stealing Rapunzel from her parents and keeping her Locked inside a tower, bringing her bad memories of the time she kidnapped Shido's friends.
  • Became friends with Shazam, since he too had the ability to turn into an adult. He also warned her against using her adult form to buy beer. He did it once and it tasted terrible. Envy also hates Natsumi for having the same powers as him, but without any of the drawbacks. She has drawn unwanted attention from Mystique, who thought she could turn Natsumi to the dark side by preying on her insecurities and self-loathing. Fortunately, Natsumi was not fooled and rejected the evil mutant. Even so, Mystique remains undaunted and believes that sooner or later, Natsumi will come to her. Shang Tsung has also become one of Natsumi's most formidable opponents, as he thinks that absorbing Natsumi's soul would increase his power exponentially.
    • Thanks to Shazam, Natsumi also came to know another magical superhero in the form of Zatanna. Natsumi was intrigued to learn Zatanna used the cover of a stage magician to perform magic, while Zatanna was impressed by Natsumi's skills in non-verbal magic. Thanks to Zatanna, Natsumi also came to know Schierke, a fellow witch with green hair. While they both respect each other for their powers and skills, Schierke always comes off as the wiser and more serious of the two and thinks Natsumi needs to learn to take things more seriously; while Natsumi thinks Schierke needs to relax and have fun.
  • Befriended fellow broomstick-riding witches Kiki and Marisa Kirisame. They enjoy having races all over the Pantheon to see who has the fastest broomstick. She was also fascinated by Kagura's ability to switch between child and adult forms depending on how her power level. Kagura admits that the older she becomes, the less stable her power will become, so Natsumi has decided to help her remedy that. Natsumi also became friends with Merlin after discovering that much like her, she was actually a child and used magic to look like an adult. She also defeated Alessi when he attempted to use his Stand to de-age her. Not only did Natsumi proved to be as capable as a child as she was as an adult, but she was quickly able to instantly reverse Sethan's effects. Since then, Alessi has done his best to avoid her.
