  • Two twin androids created by Dr. Gero to kill Goku were activated prematurely to do his bidding, only to instantly turn on their creator and destroy him. They're actually cyborgs, converted from two human teenage runaways Dr. Gero kidnapped and experimented on years ago; while their memories were wiped so thoroughly their human names didn't matter anymore, the one thing they both knew aside from their loyalty to each other was they hated the shit out of the old man and wanted him gone.
  • In one timeline, these two Androids would go on a long-suffering rampage across the Earth, causing destruction and chaos, with even the Z Fighters ending up dead at their hands, leaving Vegeta and Bulma's son Trunks the only one capable of stopping them. With a time machine, Trunks travelled back in time to warn the Z-Fighters about this threat three years in advance. Thanks to a number of factors, the resulting changes in what's now considered the Dragon Ball multiverse's main timeline meant that 17 and 18 were both far stronger and far less murderous than they were "supposed" to be, enabling them to actually become good guys following the nightmarish conflict with a far more sadistic monster who it turned out Gero had converted them to be a Living Battery for: Cell.
  • After the conflict with Cell, Android 18 became drawn to Krillin because of the goodness he showed her, first going through with a promise to herself to rock his four-foot world and then eventually marrying him and bearing his child, who goes by the name Marron. Through a combination of 18 manipulating Mr. Satan into giving her two tournament winnings' worth of zeni as well as Krillin gaining a steady job as a West City police officer, she was finally able to get him out of Master Roshi's house where he'd been living since he was a child. Meanwhile, Android 17 became a park ranger in the wildlife preserve area of a gigantic royal nature park. He is an outstanding guard who does not hold back against poachers. It is an ideal job for him, as he loves to be on his own and is not big on cooperating with others; since he is so good at his job, he takes in a modestly high salary. He also married a zoologist; they have one child and two adopted children and live happily in an isolated house somewhere around the nature park.
  • Following the appointment of his new job, Android 17 went and met his sister and her husband Krillin, on one occasion, but did not talk about what he had been up to, as he had considered the new wholesome lifestyle he had been living somewhat embarrassing.
  • Ever since marrying a zoologist, 17 has become very fond of Kevin Richardson and the late Steve Irwin. But he doesn't plan on sleeping with any of the animals... or wrestling crocodiles.
  • Tarzan has great respect for Android 17 because of his no-nonsense attitude towards poachers as a park ranger.
  • Future Trunks vehemently opposed their ascension into the Pantheon, pointing out the mass destruction and chaos they cause in his timeline. They were given pardon on the condition that the Android 17 and 18 from Future Trunks' timeline and the main timeline were two separate people, and within the main timeline, the twins ultimately caused no real harm and even lived peaceful lives, fighting for good and protecting the innocent in their own ways. Trunks tolerated the decision but refused to support it in any way.
    • He later added the condition that Hell Fighter 17 be kept out of the Pantheon, to prevent Super 17 from being formed, which both of them agreed. Rumors persist that some scientists deities, both good and evil, still want to recreate the Super 17 form some other way, but none have approached 17 with any proposal thus far.
    • Hansel and Gretel once came after them to prove that they're the most powerful killer twins on the block. 17 and 18 were caught off guard and took a bit of time to regroup, but ultimately pushed back the psychotic kids. Future Trunks, who happened upon the scene and prepared to intervene if necessary, saw 17 and 18 let the kids live after that, proving to him that they were not the same as the killers of his future. He then tied up Hansel and Gretel once 17 and 18 were gone.
    • This was ultimately resolved when Trunks met 18 again with Krillin and child in Dragon Ball Super and realized that the cyborg twins were part of the change in the world caused by his timely intervention. From then on he fully recognized that mainline 17 and 18 were not the ones who destroyed his world and began to accept them, though he does keep an eye out to make sure they don't get replaced by their evil counterparts within the Pantheon.
  • Android 18 was questioned twice by members of the House of Love how she and Krillin ended up together. The first time, she told them that “Societal definitions of beauty are B.S anyway.” The second time, she got pissed and threatened to kill them all.
  • Android 17 initially despised several members of the House of Personal Appearance due to the constant teasing and ribbing he has been receiving from members of that house after discovering that Android 17 is a natural blonde and he dyed it black because people were mistaking him for his sister. Then he quickly got over it and told them don't hate.
  • Members of the House of Music are very wary of the Androids due to their great hatred of Country Music and a strong indication that they would destroy every form of it.
  • Android 18 is greatly admired within the ginger community for refusing to make "Soulless Machine" jokes when she sees that Gero had built 16, a "ginger android", claiming it to be beneath her. As for the two's relationship with 16 himself, one of their few times reconvening since ascending to in the Pantheon involved going to find him. They were pleased to discover him alive and well in the House of Combat and spent the day hanging out with him there. Despite their separate lives, both continue to enjoy his company, as he spends a lot of time helping 17 as a park ranger and 18 occasionally comes through his area to see him.
  • Android 17 was originally asked to join the Toku Base House by many of its members after hearing he had become a "Ranger". Stating he would perfect a Ranger due to looking young, handsome and strong, but declined and later explained the specificity of the kind of "ranger" he was. Many members of Toku Base House were left red faced in embarrassment after this blunder of misinformation.
  • Nathan Drake, Indiana Jones and Lara Croft have often queried Android 17 and 18 as to whether they are descendants of treasure hunters or a wealthy family from centuries back due to their real names, Lapis and Lazuli, being based on gemstones. They have continuously given the same response of “no”, but the three of them refuse to believe them as they are convinced they are hiding a great bounty and their names are a clue to it. The truth is they don't know the answer to that question, as they can barely remember anything about their human lives thanks to Dr. Gero's experiments; 17 just enjoys messing with the treasure hunters.
  • One day while he was doing his rounds in the Bestiary, Android 17 was surprised to find that Crash Bandicoot, a former follower of his, had ascended. The two's catch-up session was cut short when Cell arrived to try and absorb 17, but 17 and Crash worked together to send him packing.
  • Android 17 gave Aghanim's Scepter a whirl. To 18's shock, the scepter transformed him into Super 17. To hers and Krillin's relief, becoming Super 17 with the scepter doesn't seem to affect 17's personality (most likely since it filled the gaps in his power structure without inserting an evil clone). That being said, he made sure to pay Cell back personally for absorbing him and 18. On a positive note, since he has a way to go Super on his own in full control whenever he wants, any curious scientists would have no leverage in getting him to agree with their plans.
    • Around the same time, Son Goku, who Dr. Gero converted the twins to destroy, had unlocked his own super state from the GT timeline as well thanks to the influence of Sun Wukong. Not one to pass up a blatant opportunity, 17 went to challenge Goku to a fight in these two forms, with each declaring himself the Ultimate Android and the Ultimate Saiyan respectively. Like the GT version, the fight was intense, and 17 took advantage of his Super form's absorption skill to surpass Goku in power; however, this battle was held under friendly intentions and Goku picked up on 17's trick earlier, so there was no kamikaze attempt. Instead, they went Good Old Fisticuffs until Chichi announced that dinner was ready, then called it a draw.
  • Many deities hate Dr. Gero because of how he treated them. At least one of said deities, Commander Epsilon, promised to have their back because of this. They appreciate it for the most part but don't want to become charity cases.
  • Eventually Goku recruited Android 17 to reunite with his sister and her allies in the mortal world to take part in the new Dragon Ball multiverse tournament hosted by Zen'o. Contrary to a previous concept of what this tournament would look like, the various sources of competitors would be actual alternate universes instead of simply divergent timelines. By this time he's finally communicated to his sister what it is he does now and proudly wears his park ranger uniform, taking the job itself very seriously and appreciating its healthy yet modest paycheck. He's also trained himself and gotten much stronger even without the Super 17 form, capable of matching a suppressed Super Saiyan Blue now as Goku finds out during their brief sparring bout.
    • He initially refused to abandon his post for the tournament because the poachers' persistence in hunting down a rare animal on the island makes them a constant threat and he couldn't guarantee they wouldn't attack and raze the entire island while the tournament is taking place, even if it is just two hours. However, after Goku helped him recover the island's animals against a massive attack from space poachers and told him about the winning universe's prize, a wish on the Super Dragon Balls, 17 accepted with plans to acquire a luxury cruise ship to travel the Earth with his family. That said, he can finally be confirmed as a friend of Goku's, much like many others who Goku first met as enemies, and openly acknowledges Krillin as his "brother".
    • Speaking of which, other points of the conversation reveal that 17 believes that he owes Krillin his life and that he could hear Goku's voice from inside Cell (which is how he recognized it when Goku was calling for the Earthlings' energy against Kid Buu). The latter is particularly enlightening as well as horrifying, as it would mean that within Cell, 17 and 18 were held prisoner in a state of suspended or paralyzed minimal consciousness, and could at least hear everything that was going on through that entire saga. This served to clear up several questions about their relationship to Krillin, their reformed attitudes, 17's park ranger occupation, and even what was going through the mind of GT-era Super 17, solidifying the credibility of the twins' turn to good.
  • Both are grateful to the Supreme Kai of Time for allowing their present selves to exist by not undoing Trunks' changes to the future. They're also both sympathetic to Sailor Saturn and SCP-191, who each have a similar experience of being turned into a cyborg by a mad scientist. They're also good with the robot with a heart named Labrys, who herself was subjected to horrible trials at the hands of amoral researchers, as well as the combat cyborg 2B, who they know wouldn't want to be a "soulless machine" like Dr. Gero attempted to make them.
  • Despite 17 becoming much more focused due to his ranger duties and 18 generally being a serious person, both played along when the love-obsessed Magical Girl leader of the Universe 2 team accused them of being evil during the Tournament of Power. 18 even acknowledged the Pantheon by calling herself a goddess when she defeated Ribrianne by turning The Power of Love against her. This instantly caused Kamina to decide she was awesome and Sanji to declare that if she wasn't married he would ask her out the minute she returned. (Nami took care to add "and strong enough to clobber [him] for hitting on her like a joker" just to make sure he dropped the idea.)
    • When Sanji did compliment her, he made sure to pay respect to both her brother and her husband in the process, treating all three of them to a fine meal. She took it gracefully as a result.
    • The Magical Girl Sisterhood was initially uncertain of how to take to the Androids after seeing their battle with Universe 2, but upon watching how 18's victory over Ribrianne was empowered by love and learning that they considered Brianne and her friends to be kinda cool in the end, 17 and 18 became allies to the Sisterhood. Sailor Moon, Tuxedo Mask, Mami Tomoe, and Nanoha particularly took a shine to them after watching 18 sacrifice her place in the tournament to save 17 from elimination, and 17 detonate himself so that Goku and Vegeta could partially heal their wounds and stay in the fight, and moreover, actually survive that to become the champion of the Tournament of Power and wish for all the erased universes to be restored, saving the entire multiverse.
    • Many of 17's grandest efforts, including his self-detonation, took place against a Grey-type superhero named Jiren, whose tragic background had left him so obsessed with strength that he didn't even care for his own teammates. Upon returning to the Pantheon, 17 remembered that someone just like Jiren already existed in the Pantheon. Shortly after the twins reunited following 17's post-tournament cruise with his family, they found that Jiren had indeed become Vergil's High Priest, the two no doubt using each other for their own ends. The twins' reaction to Jiren's ascension was rather dull, having considered it inevitable after his showing in the tournament. They are relieved that the influence of Top and Goku has gotten him to mellow out some, though.
    • One who seems to have taken particular interest in 17 is Mule, the God of Destruction of Universe 3. Mule is very into robotics and engineering, and 17 is a human augmented by technology whose barrier enabled him to overpower Universe 3's giant trump card. Between this and the Super 17 form, he wants to study 17's power, but being a decent creature as well as grateful for his return to existence, he wants to be as non-intrusive as possible about it.
  • Despite being professional enough to not confront him during the Tournament of Power, 18 has a deep grudge against Frieza stemming from when he killed Krillin. Were it not for the Dragon Balls, she would've never met her husband because of him. It doesn't help that Krillin is obviously still spooked by Frieza; when the monster returned, he had her stay behind despite being stronger than him specifically to protect their daughter Marron even before finding out anything about Frieza's massive gains in strength.
  • The "God of Control" makes no sense to the twins, especially 17. Their entire history with Dr. Gero from the moment he kidnapped them as teenage runaways to 17's violent murdering of the old man is a case study in rejecting control by others, so why Yaldabaoth would think humanity in general wants to be dominated by social control is anyone's guess. 17 has gone so far as to meet the Phantom Thieves and affirm his support for them… so long as they don't steal any of the animals that he and 16 care for. They reciprocate the support, and to no one's surprise, hope to meet 18 someday.
  • Both 17 and 18 were very happy to see their compatriot Android 21, who they helped after being taken to her base by her rebuilt version of 16, revived and ascended in the Pantheon after her sacrifice to stop her evil hunger-obsessed self from eating everyone. 17 and Ren Amamiya have conversed about her situation, wondering if her hunger side could possibly be treated like the Shadows of Ren's world.
  • MVP chants have been following 17 everywhere since he returned from his family's global cruise. Even the Immortal God-Emperor of Mankind has chimed in to give him a trophy for his victory and virtue. The Truth even complimented 17, noting the similarity between how he passed the Zen'os' test of character and Truth's own encounters with Edward Elric.
  • As 18 revealed, 17 seems to miss the full range of human emotion that he used to have as Lapis before the experiments. This is part of why he still values the Super 17 form in the Pantheon (as long as he's the one in control). It's not really a shortcut to strength anymore since he's learned how to maximize the power of his android tech without it, but it does adjust his parameters for a more fierce offensive approach as well as allow him to cut loose moreso than usual.
  • They also have a place in the House of Power.

  • Long ago, there used to be woman called Mildred Avalonne, Goddess of Heartless Angels due of her plans to re-merge Material and Elemental Worlds together to return the world back to its former state, not caring how many people would die, and then become an Archangel to rule the new world. However, as time went on, her motivation was revealed to reunite with her older twin sister, Angelia, and she started to become nicer, she was thrown back to the Spirit Plane and her former trope was given to the Light of Destruction.
    • As time went on, however, Angelia was rather eager to ascend and get back at the Light. Mildred eventually went with it, maybe thinking that she might bet a second chance to redeem herself. Their ascension came forth when Angelia with the help of her sister dropped a giant meteor on the Light.
  • Both of the sisters hate Lord Tirek, since their existence depends of them having ether to stay on material world, or else they will perish completely.
  • Both of them were happy to see Fiona to ascend, though Angelia does admit to her it was because it means she can tease her yet more.
    • Despite her bullying of Fiona, Angelia does care for her and wants to help her become human again. Not that she'd ever tell Fiona that. And of course, Mildred is determent on actually helping out for what she did to "trick" her
  • Edward Elric refuses to be seen with Angelia, even though he is a Big Little Brother. Naturally, Angelia loves to tease him about that.
  • For whatever reason, Angelia can sometimes seen coloured like Ika Musume. The two of them seem to plan on doing some kind of invasion, though no one is sure who is who's boss.
  • No one is sure what Angelia's plush doll (named Merlin) is. Only thing she really says that he helps her out somewhat and he makes for a nice pillow.
  • Angelia seems to have taken a liking to Reisuke's hand puppets and Sora Shiun'in's plushies and often plays with them. Though in the latter case, they also seem to like to fight a lot(since his plush dolls are actually his summons). Of course, she will often beat him if she is with Mildred.
  • No matter how she might sound like, Angelia is not some rabbit-like creature, much for the surprise of Nozomi Yumehara and Karen Minazuki
  • Due of her long absence and her development, she had a lot of things to do. First, she contacted Yukari and said that she has no intentions to tear down the boundaries what separate the material and spiritual planes. Second, she contacted Flonne and said that she does feel love forwards Angelia and Fiona. Third, she contacted Oichi and apologised due of being this "false light" she once was. And fourth, she apologized to Sora due of the time she overthrew him.
    • However, Angelia still doesn't trust Yukari, no matter what Mildred says.
  • Even though she became an Arcana herself, Mildred still seemed to have regained the powers of the other Arcanas she had as an Archangel. Some gods wonder due the fact that there now exists 24 Arcanas (including Mildred herself, not including Ragnarok) instead of the original 11 if she has access to even more powers. And that is horrifying to imagine.
  • Eliphas actually started gushing (well, as much as someone like him would) due of Mildred's ascension due of her progress of becoming an Ethereal is closest as she could get to a Rank-Up. She, on the other hand, tries to avoid him if possible, not knowing how he would react due of her going bit "chaotic" with her actions, even if both of them tried to evolve their people to a higher state. Angelia thinks he's some weirdo.
  • Apparently Mildred became friends with Lelouch due of both of them doing rather questionable acts for the sake of their sisters, even if Mildred doesn't look back at those events fondly and wishes to atone for them, even if it takes the eternity she was granted as a spirit.
    • However, at the same time, she really doesn't like Homura as her actions sort of reminds her of herself, if they were purely selfish. Unless Homura realizes that what she did is wrong and tries to atone for her actions, she isn't going to let it simply slide.

    Abel 
Abel, God of Envied Successful Siblings (The First Martyr, Hābīl, Infernal Guinea Pig, Bree Garland, SCP-076-2, Able)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abel_001_2.jpg
Abel as depicted in DC Vertigo
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The stone used to bludgeon him
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (usually)
  • Portfolio: Public Domain Character, The Original Abel, First Being To Be Killed In Biblical Lore, considered Too Good for This Sinful Earth, Rightly Self-Righteous, Prefers Meat Sacrifices, Responsible Sibling To Cain's Foolish Sibling, Successful Sibling Syndrome
  • Domains: Shepherds, Religious Figures, Meat, Sources of Envy, Death, Victims
  • Worships: God (includes The Alpha and Omega, God(God, the Devil and Bob), The Love That Moves The Stars)
  • Interests: Those of the Abrahamic faith
  • Allies: Kazuya Minegishi (his reincarnation), Mufasa, Yu Narukami, Dream of the Endless, The Cryptkeeper, Steve Irwin, Jonathan Joestar, Kenny McCormick, Luigi, Carl and Ada Clover, Lina and Rylai, Switzerland
  • On speaking terms with: SCP-073 (Alternate Self of Cain)
  • Enemies: Cain (usually), Vandal Savage, The SCP Foundation, Scar, YHVH, Lucifer(Supernatural), Shinji Matou, Dio Brando, Oryx
  • Opposes: Swim Swim, Kane, Naoya and those who've committed fratricide
  • Annoyed by: Lord Byron
  • According to the The Bible, the first children born were Cain and Abel. Cain was a farmer and Abel a shepherd. Abel was favored over Cain by God with his sacrifices, giving meat compared to Cain's vegetables. This would lead to Cain's jealously for his brother reaching a boiling point, bludgeoning Abel to death with a rock. Thus Abel is thought to be the first person to die, and the first murder victim.
  • With very rare exceptions, he does not get along with Cain since he murdered him. The fact they share the same sub-house has make this even worse. He certainly doesn't get along with Vandal Savage, who may or may not be Cain and is as murderous as the worst of his brother. Kane and Naoya don't want to restart antagonism towards him, but he doesn't trust them either. SCP-073, having become a much nicer person since killing Abel, took the effort to bury the hatchet with Abel.
  • The only time Cain and Abel really get along is in 70's DC Comics' horror comics, serving as dual horror hosts. But even then, Cain devolves into constantly murdering Abel in the Dreaming, though only because it's in Cain's nature. He does not take someone else killing Cain kindly. That incarnation has come to sympathize with Kenny as they keep getting killed. The Cryptkeeper, a fellow Horror Host, is able to get them to behave for a bit.
  • Because of how he died, Abel is opposed to those who murdered or seek to murder their sibling. While he might have sympathy if the reason they were very reluctant to do so or it was an act of self-defense, he has no mercy for those like Scar. Also, while Shinji Matou never killed his adoptive sister, he did horribly abuse and rape her which gets him on Abel's shit list. Dio is high on Abel's shit list due to his aggressive relationship with his adoptive brother Jonathan Joestar, topped by not just killing him but also hijacking his body. Add to all the other awful things he did, of course.
  • Regarding fratricide, he's disgusted and disturbed by Oryx and the Hive Gods, as they're frequent practitioners in family betrayal and murder as a form of love. Even being expected practice throughout the Hive, none of the deaths they inflict on each are "true" because of Resurrective Immortality, and that it helps them grow stronger in accordance to their philosophy, Abel doesn't forgive it one bit. It's still utterly alien to hear that Oryx laughed with his sister after she blew up an entire moon just to get to him, and also went hellbent on wiping humanity from the face of existence when they slayed his son.
  • Sympathetic towards Jonathan Joestar towards the shit that Dio put him through, and Mufasa due to his brother murdering him. In contrast to those guilty of fratricide, Abel respects siblings that get along and want to look out for each other, such as Switzerland, Yu Narukami and the Clover siblings. Abel's proud to see that Lina and Rylai still love each other dearly despite their rivalry, and while under his brother's shadow Luigi remains devoted to Mario.
  • Prefers meat when at the pantheon's cafeteria, and good at shepherding livestock. He likes Steve Irwin as he's a kind soul who knows how to treat animals well. Believed to be the first martyr by some of Christian tradition, Jesus considered him "righteous". As such, he doesn't care for Swim Swim since unlike him she had what was coming to her when she was killed.
  • The Jews, Christians and Muslims in the pantheon have asked him if he knows what's with the multiple incarnations of God in the pantheon and why He preferred his sacrifice of meat over Cain's sacrifice of vegetables. Abel hasn't figured out that for himself, but believes the reason his sacrifice was preferred has to do with one of the following; it was a Secret Test of Character for Cain that he failed at, God disliked Cain's thoughts of envy or Abel put more effort and more of his supply into the sacrifice.
  • In the Dreaming, Abel has immortality which only allows Cain to kill him daily. Marvel Comics has him living with Cain in Cleveland's Boarding House of Mystery, brain-damaged because of "an unfortunate accident in their adolescence". They let Howard the Duck and Beverly stay when they have no money. Devil Survivor has it that he was reincarnated as Kazuya Minegishi. It turns out that YHVH planned for Cain to kill Abel to make him a martyr. This and His later actions didn't sit well with Abel.
  • Usually seen as the victim and Cain the unwarranted aggressor. Mormonism is even of the belief that the priesthood among the ancients was passed down from him, and he was ordained by his father Adam. The extra-biblical Book of Enoch his soul was appointed the chief of martyrs, crying for vengeance and the destruction of the seed of Cain. The Testament of Abraham raised him to the position of the judge of souls. The Coptic Book of Adam and Eve and the Syriac Cave of Treasures, state his body was placed in the Cave of Treasures, before which his parents and descendants offered their prayers. The Sethite line of the Generations of Adam swear by Abel's blood to segregate themselves from the unrighteous. How they'd react to Sam and Dean Winchester being both his and Cain's descendants remains to be seen.
  • Some find Abel less sympathetic; Lord Byron argues Abel was symbolic of a sanguine temperament, and Cain killed him for his hypocrisy and sanctimony. Naturally, Abel doesn't care for Byron's assessment. Supernatural stipulates it was because he was talking to Lucifer and Cain wanted to avoid his brother being corrupted, sending him to Heaven. Seeing what that incarnation of Lucifer would go on to do, it was a good call.
  • Lucifer (2016) posits that Abel was a Casanova Wannabe and an Asshole Victim; they both tried to kill each other, Cain was just the better fighter. His soul went to an Ironic Hell of partying and trying to get laid, only for Cain to kill him, which would endlessly repeat. He managed to get a body and ultimately reconciled with Cain, before dying shortly afterwards and going to Heaven. At least it's better than Abel's SCP incarnation, a respawning Humanoid Abomination known as SCP-076-2 or Able who's mind is full of violence and tries to kill everyone he can. He looks a lot like Gilgamesh in this form.

    Byakuya Kuchiki

  • The captain of Soul Society's Court Guard Squad 6, Byakuya Kuchiki is very serious about two things: keeping the law, and protecting his younger sister Rukia. He will rarely break either of these priorities, and only if doing so involves keeping the other. For this reason, he has earned this seat.
  • A very stoic and serious man, Byakuya can get on people's nerves with how stern he is, especially when heroic types like Ichigo don't immediately see or agree with something that he does, but it's usually quite clear that his heart is in the right place.
    • Speaking of Ichigo, he once encountered friendly god Gentaro Kisaragi and was taken aback since he looked similar to Ichigo somehow. Gentaro however, just announced that Byakuya was now his friend after a battle. Byakuya has also felt pity for the shit Gentaro went through in Limbo and wished he was there sooner to get the boy out of that hell he had been through.
  • Is known to quickly turn battles in his favor by approaching them head-on and then slipping behind them before they get a chance to turn around. The larger the opponent he uses this on, the better it works for Byakuya.
  • The truth is Byakuya is not Rukia's biological brother, but her brother-in-law. His late wife Hisana was actually Rukia's sister, who abandoned her in order to survive in Soul Society as a child and deeply regretted it. After searching for Rukia practically every day of their marriage, she fell ill and, on her deathbed, asked him to find Rukia and look after her as a brother. One word of advice? Do not mess with his sister. Those cherry blossom blades of his are no joke.
  • Is good friends with Itachi Uchiha, who was once his follower. The two held a bit of respect for each other. They understand the plight of looking out for their society's justice while trying to protect or strengthen a sibling. His visits to The Fallen also help keep both men from resorting back to certain desperate measures because they can see that part of themselves in each other and temper it quickly.
  • Like many protective siblings, Byakuya was initially angry with BROKEN Matt Hardy once he first started making life hell for Jeff and even broke Jeff down into his slave Brother Nero, not to mention with his role in the Limbo incident (the act of sending three already traumatized girls into a death world was cruel, never mind that this action helped save the Pantheon). But when Matt regained his appreciation for his brother and started to rebuild his relationship with Jeff as well as truly live up to his claim to fight against evil, the issues were resolved. Although he's still keeping an eye out due to Matt's "alliance" with Bray Wyatt as of late.
  • The assault on the Vandenreich left him massively depowered. However, thanks to Yu Narukami forming a Social Link on him, Byakuya felt assured to entrust that Yu could protect his home when he's recovering.
    • After said recovery and some special training, Byakuya returned and took back his position, proceeding to show off exactly what he could do now. His only regret was that As Nodt was already disposed of before he could make that happen. He felt better when he found out that it was Rukia who defeated him.
  • Holds those who try to kill their younger brothers or dependent family members, like Raditz, Scar the lion, and Ragyo Kiryuin, in full contempt as traitors and mental weaklings (Matt redeemed himself and Itachi was trying to make Sasuke stronger, hence those exceptions). Those who look out for them, like Raoh and Satsuki, gain his appreciation and respect instead. He's also gotten respect from younger brothers like Luffy and the Ishvalan Scar who know what it's like to have a good brother watching their back.
  • As for the Fire siblings Zuko and Azula both trying to change each other for what they think is the better, he is obviously supporting Zuko's cause. Both because Zuko is the older brother and because Zuko's direction is the one that doesn't tend to go for wars of conquest.
  • Is not a fan of how easily the Sons of Sparda and the Brothers of Destruction come to blows against each other despite clearly being able to coexist. Seeing both sets of brothers finally start to straighten out the issues that had long stood between them pleases him.

    Cain 
Cain, God of Fratricide (The First Murderer, "My Brother's Keeper", Qābīl, Master Mahan, Caine, Kane, Kapaneus, Father of Murder, First Son, Sire of All Vampires, Marcus Pierce, The Sinnerman)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cain1.png
Cain as portrayed in Supernatural.
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Mark of Cain
  • Alignment: Up for interpretation; usually seen as a Neutral Evil or True Neutral if remorseful
  • Portfolio: The Original Cain, Public Domain Character, Sibling Murder Out Of Jealousy, Planted Vegetables For Sacrifices, Rather Than Meat, Green-Eyed Monster, Red Right Hand, Biblical Villains, May Have Regretted His Murder, Walking the Earth
  • Domains: Murder, Anger, Jealousy, Family Betrayal, Vegetation, Curses
  • High Priest: Romulus
  • Special relationship with: SCP-073, Naoya, Kane(Command and Conquer) (alternate selves), Vandal Savage, Vampirella (his daughter)
  • Sought out by: Iroque, the Grand United Alliance of Good and Grand United Alliance of Evil, others who've committed fratricide like Scar
  • Interested in: Set
  • Complicated relationship with: Lucifer Morningstar
  • Allies: Lilith, Lucifer(SMT), The Cryptkeeper
  • On speaking terms with: Kyoichiro Kuroi
  • Enemies: YHVH, The Spectre, Sam and Dean Winchester (his descendants), Lucifer(Supernatural), Merged Zamasu, Switzerland, Lina and Rylai, Mufasa
  • Opposes: Versions of God (sometimes enemies, sometimes OK with), The Van Helsings
  • Opposed by: The Heroic Protectors of Family, victims of fratricide, the sub-house of Siblings
  • Under watch by: Deities who believe in the Abrahamic faith
  • Brothers are meant to love each other, but often can find themselves in a rivalry. And sometimes this can get deadly. Cain and Abel were the first children of Adam and Eve, and thus the first children according to The Bible. Abel's sacrifice of meat was preferred by God to Cain's sacrifice of vegetation. Filled with jealousy, Cain slew his brother Abel with a rock. Thus he was cursed, becoming the first murderer and first to commit fratricide.
  • It's a matter of theological debate on whether there were other motives for his murder, and why God rebuked his sacrifice in the first place. Some belief has envy over a woman they both love as a motive, and that he needed Satan to help him commit the first murder since it had never been done. Naoya states that it was because YHVH made him to create the first martyr. Supernatural states it was to prevent his brother from being corrupted by Lucifer. Perhaps it was over a piece of Eden, and he is the founder of the Templar Order.
  • As a consequence of being a Public Domain Character, there were already multiple versions of Cain in the pantheon. When asked who was the closest to the truth, Cain said that they are all incarnations of the original, representing the different sides of his personality. Vandal Savage represents his ferocious and murderous nature, SCP-073 his guilt and desire to be better, Kane his God-given cunning and Naoya his resentment and hatred towards God for his Mark and curse. Naoya seems to relate to him the most.
  • Upon further inspection(or more accurately, a retcon), Vandal Savage wasn't Cain, but someone who Cain transferred the Mark to. Sort of, it's complicated; he was reborn as/possessed by Cain after cultists of the Religion of Crime plunged the Spear of Destiny into him. He went on a path of revenge to the Spectre for punishing Cain in the past, but ended up getting it branded to him. Vandal's tried to pass it on to the Question.
  • As expected for the iconic fratricider, he's the member nobody likes in his own sub-house. Switzerland took the most offense to his entry. Lina and Rylai did as well, since despite their rivalry for one another they truly love each other and would never try to kill each other. Depending on his mood, Cain expects to be given shit from them and may feel he deserves it.
  • Victims of fratricide oppose Cain. Those who commit fratricide are intrigued by him, particularly Scar. Cain himself is interested in Set, having said to have murdered his brother in Egyptian mythology before The Bible was written. Most of the House of FAITH doesn't care for him, either. Lucifer was intrigued by Cain, who the first murderer finds interesting enough to partner. Mainly because of Lilith's allegiance and his feelings of being an arch-sinner, not any real ideological views or anything.
  • Some extracanonical sources state that Cain is actually the son of a Fallen Angel, perhaps even the scion of Satan himself. More accepted(though not truly canonical) is the belief that The Descendants of Cain were cursed for their progenitor's sins in some way. He is known as the father of Vampirella, and it's said that Lilith, his father's first mate, is his lover. The identity of his wife and Enoch's mother is up for dispute, but generally believed to be his sister.
  • One of the classic Biblical villains, sources vary on whether Cain tried to make up for his actions, regretted things or kept on his evil ways. He did end up founding a city with his son Enoch. The GUAG wishes to bring out his desire for redemption, while the GUAE wants to make him a mascot for fratricide. As the Cain in the pantheon is a Composite Character of the Biblical original and many other versions, his views on this are skewed.
  • Sometimes found talking to Kyoichiro Kuroi on regret and shame for their actions, whenever he's feeling in a remorseful mood. Iroque wants to help Cain come to terms and fully atone for his behavior, knowing what it's like to murder and wanting the best to come from him. Cain likes that someone wants to help him, but wary due to how she has a habit of brainwashing people to good. The Indigo Tribe has tried to dissuade those fears by stating that they only do this to those naturally incapable of compassion, and Cain isn't such a figure.
  • Was cursed by God so he could never farm the land, and if someone harms him he will be avenged seven-fold. The Mark of Cain makes sure people know this. This is likely to avoid a Cycle of Revenge, and is often interpreted as immortality as a punishment. Cain has tried to do something in the House of Plants, but to no avail. The Darkness has it that he was either killed in a collapse he built with his sister-wife, or more likely went on to atone and opposed the Darkness, allying with The Angelus only for her to use her light powers to burn him to ashes. Jackie Estado has his ashes.
  • The House of Vengeance is warned of his curse, which they took as some sort of message against them. The Spectre is enraged that he cannot judge Cain because of his Mark. Cain usually doesn't care for any version of God, but on his better days he does at least appreciate the purpose of his punishment. Zamasu considers him yet another prime example on why Humans Are Bastards, and Cain doesn't think he has any room to talk as he has committed the grievous sins of genocide and deicide.
  • Perhaps his most powerful incarnation lays in the Dreaming, or more accurately he represents murder and Abel the murder victim(or they are the living embodiments of the old Cain and Abel story). He doesn't take kindly to others who would hurt his brother, and on some level truly loves him. He just can't deny his nature to kill his brother. In the 1970s, they were at least civil to serve as horror hosts. As such, Cain seems to behave himself in the presence of the Cryptkeeper.
  • Usually seen as the aggressor in his relationship with Abel. Despite(or maybe because) of this, in the SCP Foundation Abel (well, Able) is the mass-murderer, and in some universes he had a more understandable reason to kill Abel. With SCP-076-2/Able, it's believed he died because of the Attack Reflector power Cain had, or that being murdered filled him with the vengeance and hatred that drives him to be an Omnicidal Maniac. In Marvel, he lives with Abel in the Boarding House of Mystery in Cleveland that he owns. Abel's mentally disabled because of "an unfortunate accident in their adolescence". They let Howard the Duck and Beverly stay when they had no money, but the other Marvel deities would rather keep an eye on him.
  • Some incarnations have this making his the first vampire, such as Vampire: The Masquerade or the DC Universe. In the latter, he fed on Lilith and made her his first bride. Etrigan cursed him that if he fed on an truly innocent soul he'd be cursed to spend his days locked in a vacuum of nothingness, eternally. This happened by accident in the 16th century, which led him to be sealed away within the House of Mystery in the Dreaming in the first place. This was set up by the Order of the Van Helsings, so he doesn't care for Integra or her friends. Superman doesn't care for the fact that his Marcus Pierce incarnation bears a resemblance to him.
  • As Caine, the first vampire, his powers are practically limitless. Attempting to fight him means, quite simply, you lose. He also insists he didn't kill Abel but sacrificed him as Abel was "the first part of all my joy". If he's telling the truth, lying or has come to believe the lie is unknown. Also, despite the world of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines going through simultaneous apocalypses and somehow managing to limp on, this may or may not stop him from having driven a cab in Los Angeles.
  • Some sects of Mormonism believe that Cain became Bigfoot/Sasquatch. Yes, really. It comes from a claim of one of their first apostles, David W. Patten, who said he witnessed a shaggy, hair-covered Cain in 1835. Cain thinks he was drunk, or maybe he mistook him for one of his descendants. Along with vampires, he's also thought to be the ancestor of Grendel and his mother, alongside other monsters.
  • In one universe, Cain and Abel both tried to kill each other, Cain was just the better fighter. Abel wasn't that good anyway, a Casanova Wannabe who ended up in Hell. They did manage to reconcile and while a Death Seeker, he changed his mind after losing the Mark, ultimately being killed by Lucifer. While he's on bad terms with Lucifer Morningstar there, and it didn't help in the first place that he dated his mother Eve, his original incarnation doesn't have that antagonism.

    Carl and Ada Clover 
Carl and Ada Clover, Gods of the Brother Sister Team-Up (Ada: Deus Machina: Nirvana)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carl_and_ada_clover_cf.png
Carl (The boy) Ada (The robot)
Carl after Central Fiction 
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: Carl's Top Hat plus Ada herself on his Emblem.
  • Theme Song: Marionette Purple
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (once dipped into Neutral Good, but seem to have abandoned that stance)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domain: Family, Combat, Humanity
  • Allies: Litchi Faye-Ling, Bang Shishigami, Alice Margatroid, Jin Kazama, Makoto Nanaya, Agri and Moune, Zato-1, Mordred, Yoko Littner, Suigintou, Zenia Valov, Grey, Painwheel
  • Enemies: Relius Clover (their father), Yuuki Terumi
  • Pities and pitied by: Kosmo and Nova
  • Once went into hiding from Relius' wrath by being Alice Margatroid. However, he abruptly left and ended up ironically "helping" Relius in his attempt of a personal takeover of the Pantheon. However, once it was apparent Relius was backstabbed by Ocelot and Wesker, Carl revealed his true intentions and did not help Relius at all: He just wanted to protect Litchi (and Ocelot kinda 'convinced' to backstab). Right now, he serves as the one guarding Relius after his power loss until he 'cures' Ada and after that, Carl would arrange his fall to the Fallen. Thus was the tale of how Carl and Ada found their place in the Pantheon.
    • That being said, Carl was very apologetic that he had to beat up Bang Shishigami in process. After the fiasco, he went to apologize.
    • He also gave his apology to Alice for doing it. She forgave him and they still help each other. Alice is also hopeful that Ada can be turned back to normal so that she can use parts from Nirvana to finish up her Goliath Doll.
    • This act also won him the trust of Jin Kazama and offers him a spot in his 'Anti-Parental Abuse' group. Carl was more than happy to accept.
  • Carl was once, even before entering Alice's house, a…problem child, mercilessly killing people just for information all with a serene smile and politeness. He got better thanks to Litchi and Bang, and ever since, Carl has been quite protective of them (especially Litchi). He'll be the first in line to defend Litchi if someone ever snarks about her 'dark obsession'.
  • Carl 3:16 says: "Thou shalt not refer 'Ada' as 'Nirvana', word related to 'puppet' or say she's not his sister." Failure to comply will receive the punishment of being invited to a volleyball match between him and Ada…the guilty being the ball. (This is why we don't bother to put Ada's alias on the title).
    • Carl 3:17 says: "Thou shalt not harm Carl when he is defenseless. Failure to comply will receive major ass-kicking by Ada, even if Carl cannot control her."
  • Carl often visits the Academy now after missing out a lot of his education year and he could at least breath easy at the moment. He still surprises the chess club members with his chess competence.
  • When Alice started forming "The Grand Puppeteer Court" with Haruka and Uncle Howee, she assigned Carl as The Lancer. Carl didn't oppose to this idea, though he insisted that Ada should be an actual member of the group, so she was made The Big Gal.
  • Zenia Valov gets along with him, though refuses to tell precisely why to Carl. The reason is because Carl's past reminds her of her younger sister, to the point where her sister was "turned to a doll", which ends up being false.
  • As of late, something has terribly changed within Carl, he's much colder to others and has distanced himself from his friends, from even Bang and Litchi, to even the new friends he made before. He said that he has no more times for "games' when restoring his sister becomes his greatest justice, though he still says that he's not going to turn out like his father, even if people say he's walking to a similar path as him.
    • While he still is acting crude to others, the ascension of two new deities, Kosmo and Nova, had the chance to give his softer side a time to shine, seeing Kosmo as Not So Different from what he had to deal with when dealing with the repair of his sister. He has enlisted them to help him restore Ada should he get a list of everything he precisely needs to help rebuild her to see how far they would go.
  • Ada has indicated that she has some pity and fellow-feeling for Painwheel, both being young girls who were unwillingly roboticised and forced to live as weapons. Carl isn't so sure about her, recognizing how extremely dangerous Painwheel is, and in his change of mind thinks she might make a good pawn.

Lina and Rylai, Goddesses of Sister Rivalries (Lina: Slayer, Lina Inverse, Hellfire Bitch, Hell Bitch, Hellfire Hellbitch | Rylai: Crystal Maiden, Rylai Crestfall, Crystal Meltin')
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lina_rylai_pantheon.png
Top: Lina. Bottom: Rylai
  • Lesser Goddesses
  • Symbol: A small flame dancing on a frostbitten statue.
  • Alignment: True Neutral (Lina), Neutral Good (Rylai)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Family, Magic, War, Combat.
  • Followers: Brie and Nikki Bella, Kayle and Morgana (this one also counts as 'rivals' or sorts)
  • Allies: Sven, Azwraith, Jakiro, Thrall, Lina Inverse, Naga, Johnny Storm, Cygnus Hyoga
  • Rivals: The Champions of Runeterra
  • Even as they ascended, if they're not having something common to fight (like The Dire), they WILL one way or another bicker at each other. Indeed, their rivalries were known as 'the stuff of legends'.
  • Lina is often considered the sexier, smarter sister, but Rylai is more sociable and friendly, contrasting the two each other. Of course, it doesn't mean Lina isn't friendless; she's just harder to approach.
    • That being said, there has been rumors that Rylai has been hanging out a lot with Sven. Both decidedly remain silent on the matter at hand, but they do make a fearsome team.
    • It is later found out that Lina also could be a potent ally with Sven. Naturally, this led into a bickering between the sisters on who gets to lane with Sven more… which ends up with Sven actually smacking them silly. The sisters agreed to not touch this subject again and agreed to shuffle for the sake of victory. This is after Sven apologized, revealing that they were just being smacked because Sven was in an Unstoppable Rage after times of abuse for laughs courtesy of Wraith King.
  • When Lina met the one she used to be named after, Lina Inverse, the former's actually impressed with her magical knowledge and respected her. Inverse thinks she's not doing bad to live up to the name 'Lina', but can't help but get jealous at her sexier body. Still, Inverse has some comfort in having more destructive power than the other Lina.
  • Rylai was approached by Thrall, claiming that she reminds him somewhat to an old friend, Jaina Proudmoore. Rylai ended up having to listen about a story from Thrall on how his friend started Jumping Off the Slippery Slope and hoped that Rylai don't end up the same. She assured him that she won't.
    • Thrall's presence is also one of the things that will make Lina cease any attempts of bullying or rivalling with Rylai, seeing that there's something she respects about this particular Orc.
  • Rylai is apparently a fan of Queen Elsa's song 'Let It Go', and occasionally put them on whenever she executes her Freezing Field (of course, Lina is rather annoyed at that and would burn the player if she's within the radius). She also seems insisting on having Sven dress up as a reindeer, much to his embarrassment.
  • Rylai was later involved in helping Thrall ascending Jaina Proudmoore. She realized that Jaina used to be her origin and Squees at her presence, considering her a role model. After comforting Jaina a bit about her doubts of possibly descending to madness again, they seem to share a bond like adoptive family.
    • Much like towards Thrall, Lina also wouldn't bully Rylai in front of Jaina out of respect. The two siblings STILL bicker at each other, but if Jaina found out, they're usually in for a big scolding.
  • They are not followers per se because of the things they represent in the Pantheon but in a distant lands, there are two similar individuals considered to be their 'incarnations': Pyromancer and Glacius. Lina grinned at this, because apparently Pyromancer is amongst the Legions/good guys, whereas Glacius is amongst the Hellbourne/bad guys, with her snarking that Rylai isn't THAT much of a 'nanny' she was famous for if she can't keep her incarnations in line.
  • With their arcana items, the sisters end up looking differently. Lina's eyes glows and her hair transform into fire, and her Dragon Slave spell will have a new look. Rylai starts floating and casts her spells with an aurora effect. In addition, Rylai will have a wolf puppy companion to accompany her. Of course, even Rylai can rib that with her Arcana, Lina ends up looking like a Bald Woman.
  • Though she usually is the one smarter and having the advantage, Lina didn't take it well if someone else bullied Rylai, as far as she's concerned, that right belonged only to her and her alone. This is why she has more beef than usual towards Lion the Demon Witch, because of at one point he utterly humiliated Rylai, aside of them competing about who has the deadlier burst blast: Her Laguna Blade or his Finger of Death.
  • "One little spark and before you know it, the whole world is burning."
  • "It's all fun and games until someone's frozen solid."

    Luxanna "Lux" Crownguard 
Luxanna Crownguard, Goddess of Heroic Little Sisters (Lux, Lady of Luminosity)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lux_originalloading.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A swirling ball of light (Lucent Singularity) in front of the flag of Demacia
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Innocence Mixed With Badassery, Squishy Wizard, Light Magic, Little Sisters Who Are Heroic On Her Own, Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold, Black Magic, Magical Girl, Final Spark, Child Soldier, Stepford Smiler, rather Annoying Laugh, Rumors Of Flat-Chestedness, "DEMACIAAA!!!"
  • Domain: Family, War, Light.
  • Allies: Champions of the state Demacia (especially Garen, Jarvan IV and Xin Zhao), Ezreal, Gnar, most Radiant champions, Marisa Kirisame, Noel Vermillion, Sora, Setsuna F. Seiei, Yu Narukami
  • Rivals: Defenders of the Ancients
  • Enemies: Champions of the state Noxus (in particular Draven), Lady Tremaine
  • Once she was a revered high priestess of Marisa Kirisame. Apparently, Lux was very content with it, until one night, she was abducted from Marisa's house against her will by something of a visage of her 'mother' to serve at the Pantheon. Once she arrived there, Lux received utter abuse by this figure... until one day she figured out on her own that this 'mother' was nothing but an illusion, it turns out her kidnapper was none other than Lady Tremaine, who was pissed that her daughters were banished and she had nothing else to abuse on mentally (the illusion was conjured by Maleficent). In Tranquil Fury, Lux blew the lady away with one Final Spark (and the yell "DEMACIAAA!!"), just in time as her rescuers, including Marisa and her brother Garen, arrive.
    • With Garen praising just how reliable she is just like how she was in the mortal realms, Marisa just smiled and said that she was just about to relay the message that Lux was to be ascended to the throne of Heroic Little Sisters. Thanks to the assurance of Garen that Lux will find new friends, finally Lux can have something to truly feel within her rather than before...
  • Once tried to wear something that bares her midriff. However, everyone instead derided that she looked silly with it, from that point on Lux has an aversion on midriff-baring outfits.
  • Somehow, she's able to bond well with Noel Vermillion due to their background as Child Soldier as well as apparently, Noel has a gut feeling that Lux is also... flat chested like her. She has since received an invitation to join the League of Flat Chest.
  • Being the little sister of Garen, Lux also apparently got into a rivalry with the younger brother of Garen's Noxian counterpart (Darius), Draven. It's an age-old relations, but Lux is determined to show that she is the better little sibling.
  • Apparently, she got a little bored because her friend Ezreal hasn't been in the Pantheon to share stories. So she wandered and bumped into Yu Narukami. They share stories and Lux became fascinated enough that they became friends, with Narukami often taking her to visit his little sister Nanako. Lux thinks that Nanako is adorable. Though in the end, Ezreal himself managed to make it to the Pantheon.
  • If you're wondering how did she became Marisa's star student, they first met when Marisa confronted her about her stealing her Final Spark move note . However, after Marisa saw how greatly Lux's Final Spark paled down in comparison to her own Final Spark, Marisa started laughing and promised that she will teach Lux how to properly pull off Final Spark.
  • When news has it that Lux has gained a stereotypical Magical Girl outfit, everyone gave out a collective "Took you long enough." or "About time."
  • There's always an ongoing rumor about her dating Ezreal. While Lux sees him as a really good friend, she hasn't confirmed on such rumors.
  • "Well, a "double rainbow" is a phenomenon of optics that displays a spectrum of light due to the sun shining on droplets of moisture in the atmosphere. Does that explain it?"

    Sarasa 
Sarasa, Goddess of Dead Sibling Impersonations (Tatara, The White Tiger, Byakko)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sarasa.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Byakko sword
  • Theme Song: "Endless Loop"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: My Sibling Will Live Through Me, Sweet Polly Oliver, Doomed Hometown, Rebel Leader, Magnetic Hero, white tiger motifs
  • Domains: Heroes, Fate, Revolution, Siblings
  • Heralds: Shuri, Shinbashi, Yato and many others
  • Allies: Yona, Miaka Yuuki, The Robed Figure, Nausicaä, Kenshiro, Lelouch vi Britannia, Switch (Sket Dan), Katniss Everdeen
  • Enemies: YHVH, Light Yagami, Charles zi Britannia, everyone in Tyrannical Figures
  • Respected by: Lucifer
  • Sarasa is a teenage girl who lived in the desert village Byakko in a future Japan that had been ravaged by catastrophic climate change at the end of the 20th century. Sarasa had a twin brother, Tatara, who was the subject of a prophecy claiming he was the child of destiny who would challenge the tyrannical regime ruling the country. One day, their village was raided by the Red King's forces and Tatara was killed. Sarasa, though grieving, saw her fellow villagers' despair and resolved to take on the identity of her brother so as to finish his task and bring hope to the oppressed people. She travelled through all of Japan to gather four swords named after The Four Gods that'd give her credibility as a resistance leader and along the way gathered many allies. She also had recurring meetings with a young man called Shuri who she fell in love with, not knowing he was the Red King. Eventually Sarasa amassed an army that allowed her to invade the capital city Kyoto and topple the monarchy once and for all and worked with everyone to turn Japan into a free and fair country.
  • In the end Sarasa was pressured to kill Shuri as revenge for her village's destruction, but since they had fallen in love with each other in the course of their adventures, she just couldn't do it. Tired from the demands of being Tatara and just wanting to live a normal life, Sarasa finally cast off her brother's identity and departed with Shuri (who was no longer a king with the monarchy abolished) to parts unknown. The "parts unknown" turned out to be the Pantheon; Sarasa had been given godhood at the recommendation of the former holder of her trope, Switch of the Sket Dan, who felt a kinship with Sarasa, as he too adopted the identity of his brother for years out of guilt at his death. He was looking to join his friends under one temple and thought Sarasa was very worthy of replacing him.
  • Besides her soulmate Shuri, the other Heralds who are constantly at Sarasa's side, no matter what, are her pet owl Shinbashi and her horse Yato. Shinbashi was the runt of his litter; Sarasa adopted him and cared for him because she couldn't stand the thought of him dying. For that, Shinbashi does everything he's capable of to help Sarasa in her endeavors. As for Yato, he was a temperamental steed originally given to Sarasa's brother Tatara, but after his untimely death Yato went to her. He was reluctant to obey her at first, but as Sarasa proved herself and risked her life for him, Yato came to support her with all his being. Sarasa can also summon everyone who followed her in her desire for revolution, but most of the time they're left alone in their world to build their own lives.
  • She's not interested in getting involved in the Pantheon's eternal moral conflict. Her tenure as a Rebel Leader and fight to turn Japan into a free country was enough to last her a lifetime and she just wants to live peacefully right now. This is fairly disappointing to the rebel god Lelouch, who was impressed by her guile and leadership skills and thought she'd go places in the GUAG. He still greatly respects her nonetheless, and believes that together they'd be unstoppable. At any rate Sarasa and her Heralds will certainly fight to protect themselves and their friends, and if Sarasa sees some form of injustice occuring right in front of her, she's generally compelled to intervene.
  • Sarasa comes from a desertified region that got that way due to a rather ambiguous ecological apocalypse. One of her biggest dreams was to bring that place back to life by covering it with plants. As a result she is pretty fond of doing gardening around her temple's grounds. She feels strongly when she hears about other worlds that have been devastated in a similar manner to her own. The Robed Figure is a deity that comes from one such world, as Sarasa found out upon being told of it and visiting its temple, where she could appreciate its story (as the Robed Figure can't exactly communicate it to her directly). It proved to be a real Tear Jerker for her; Sarasa was especially moved by the Robed Figure's compassion in releasing all the Cloth Creatures. Consequently the Robed Figure is always welcome in Sarasa's temple. Sometimes it may even be seen chirping a song alongside Shinbashi.
    • Sarasa became friends with Nausicaä for similar reasons, given Nausicaä's world is undoubtedly worse, what with how barely any of it is habitable due to the toxic spores flying around. Like Sarasa, Nausicaä displayed a strong will to change the world around her and took pains to achieve her goal. Learning of how Nausicaä confronted the Ohm herd and managed to bring peace between them and the humans, Sarasa is convinced that Nausicaä is much stronger than her.
    • A similar ally that was a lot more unexpected was the Hokuto Shinken master Kenshiro, who recognized Sarasa's strength in surviving in a post-apocalyptic world while still striving to do good, something that's not easy to do under such conditions.
  • Obviously for someone who fought as hard as she did to depose the despots in her country, she hates any and all forms of tyrannical leadership. Those such as YHVH, Light Yagami and Lelouch's father Charles, who'd just kill anyone who disagrees with their vision of a perfect world, are almost enough to convince Sarasa to come out of retirement and take up arms again to make sure they can never achieve their goals. She in turn is a frequent target of assassination on their part, lest the tiger awaken from her sleep once more, so to speak.
  • As Sarasa is someone who was brave enough to take on a whole country's law and change it from the inside out, the top representative of the Chaos alignment, Lucifer, has always thought that Sarasa is supremely interesting. Not unlike Lelouch with the GUAG, he wishes she'd consider joining the GUAC so that together they can put an end to the suffocation of order and bring on a world where everyone is truly free to pursue their wishes. Sarasa doesn't necessarily see all order as being automatically bad though (only if it's the absolute kind that's reinforced by brutalizing the people it's supposed to protect), and actually thinks that Lucifer's ideal world would just result in another type of injustice where the strong abuse the meek. That's fine by Lucifer too (if disappointing), as he thinks Sarasa is strong enough to fight for her beliefs.
  • If someone could be considered a spiritual successor to Sarasa, that'd probably be Yona, a Fallen Princess who travels through her country to help her people and gathering forces to one day depose the man who killed her father. Sarasa and Yona have quite different origins, as Sarasa is a commoner, but their main goals of improving their countries into more humane societies are not at all different. They often train together to improve Yona's skills with weapons and to ensure Sarasa's don't fall on the wayside.
  • Sarasa's strong association with the White Tiger of The Four Gods drew the interest of Miaka Yuuki, who has her own connections to the Vermillion Bird due to being the Priestess of Suzaku. Miaka thought Sarasa might be the priestess of Byakko, but as Sarasa explained to her, the title was purely symbolic and wasn't given to her out of any divine connection to a god. That was actually a relief to Miaka, because the priestesses generally oppose each other in the race to awaken their god first (still, it's interesting to note that Tatara was also the name of the most famous Byakko guardian). Once that was cleared, Sarasa and Miaka bonded over their adventures and the burdens they had to carry, and Sarasa's grief for her brother reminded Miaka of her guardian Nuriko and the efforts his brother Roukou had to make to get over his death.
  • She and Shuri once had the poor luck of getting kidnapped and forced into a death race by a mad king when they were in Tokyo. To her dismay, deities who went through the same thing are a dime a dozen in the Pantheon, with special mention to Katniss Everdeen, who's both the goddess of the Deadly Game and also had to go through the same thing multiple times with her now-husband Peeta. Since Katniss also lived under the yoke of a tyrant known as President Snow and fought (albeit reluctantly) on the rebels' side, she and Sarasa get along well, though Katniss has even less desire to go back to the rebel lifestyle than Sarasa.

  • Conflicting Opinion: Austria, Hungary
  • Enemies: People who break into his house, all abusive parents and siblings, anyone who tries to harm his sister, and the entire GAUE. for harming his sister.
  • Was supposed to ascend into the Pantheon with Liechtenstein, but showed up a bit after her due to some paperwork mix-ups. His first response was to search the entire Pantheon for her, assuming that she was dead.
    • Due to this, he is on good terms with most of the other good elder brother gods in the Pantheon, even if they find him a bit extreme…
  • After finding out about his sister's friendship with Alphonse Elric, he was introduced to Edward Elric. The two get along well. It also helps that they sound exactly the same.
    • This is also why he gets along with Naoto Shirogane.
  • Was not glad to hear of Austria and Hungary's ascension into the Pantheon, as he still blames them for abandoning Liechtenstein. He does not care that they were probably forced into it.
    • Speaking of that, he was never in any sort of relationship with Austria and is NOT in a romantic relationship with his younger sister. Either one of the above questions has become his Berserk Button now.
  • Gets along surprisingly well with Nagisa Momoe, who shares his love of cheese.
  • During the events of Vienna Burning, he wasn't majorly affected, but someone blew up Liechtenstein. This led towards him going on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge against the entire GAUE for rendering his sister comatose, which caused him to be kidnapped by Tsukuyomi. However, he was able to escape with Fuyuhiko Kuzuryuu and Konaka Konoe. He now hates them.

    Yun Lee and Yang Lee 
Yun Lee and Yang Lee, Gods of Sibling Yin-Yang (Yun: Soaring White Dragon | Yang: Spirited Blue Dragon)

  • Lesser Gods
  • Theme Songs: Crowded Street (Action Movie Edit fighting mooks, Drum & Bass Mix when chilling, Just Enough! in heated battle, Up to Snuff while sparring, Midnight Ver. at late hours)
  • Symbols: A Skateboard and In-Line Rollerblades.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolios:
  • Domains: Siblings, Kung Fu and Kempo, Family
  • Heralds: Hoimei and Shaomei (Yun and Yang's respective girlfriends), Lee (their uncle)
  • Allies:
  • Friendly Rivals: Kim Jae Hoon and Kim Dong Hwan, Ryu, Ken Masters, Asuka Kazama
  • Enemies: Gill, Urien, M. Bison
  • Yun and Yang Lee's ascension was made possible thanks to the efforts of Chun-Li, Fei Long and Gen. It had been Chun-Li herself who had delivered the news to the boys.
  • Their restaurant on the mortal realm, the Shinryuuken, serves as the twins' temple, but most of the time, they are seen either in Gen's temple, or racing through the Pantheon; Yun on his skateboard and Yang on his rollerblades.
  • Threaten the safety of either Hong Kong or Shanghai if you want to. Go ahead. See what happens. Better yet, ask Gill.
  • Their uncle was Lee, who had competed in the first World Warrior Tournament. The boys themselves are orphans who are godsons to eight underground bosses in their community, while their grandfather was their martial arts teacher.
  • Yun and Yang's love life is a tad complicated mess involving two sisters. Initially Yang was in love with the older sister, but she was all over Yun and pretty much pushed herself on him as his girlfriend, while the younger sister had the hots for Yang, but was too shy to tell him her feelings. Eventually Yang gave up on the older sister and reciprocated the younger sister's feelings. Nowadays
  • For the record, despite the last name, they are not related to Billy and Jimmy Lee.
  • Despite the fact that their godfathers are mob bosses, Kim Kaphwan is impressed with the twins and their desire to maintain order.
  • Notice that baseball cap that Yun wears? It's more than just a fashion statement. The cap's bill narrows his line of vision, which Yun uses to his advantage, of which Ryu points out during one their matches.
  • Yang once believed that he would always be second-best to his brother. Until he got a confidence boost from Cassandra Cage, of all people. She once thought that she was just a "second-rate Cage" living in the shadow of her parents, until the fiasco with Shinnok's amulet. Cassie simply tells him to be his own man. Yun has taken the advice to heart.
  • Every now and then, someone from the Mecha Division mistakes either one of them for Duo Maxwell and/or Trowa Barton. Master Asia once suggested teaching them so they could face Gundams with their bare hands, but they declined.

    Mokuba Kaiba 
Mokuba Kaiba, God of Big Brother Worship (Mokie [Only Seto gets away with calling him that])
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mokuba_kaiba_duli.png
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: His Card-Shaped Photo Pedant
  • Theme Song: His Duel Links theme
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: General: Big Brother Worship, Seto's Morality Pet, Undying Loyalty, Tag Along Kid
  • Domains: Siblings, Kidnappings
  • Allies: All ascended Yu-Gi-Oh! deities (but Yugi's friend group can be rocky at times), Princess Peach, Seth Rollins, Nanako Dojima, Coco Bandicoot, Tigger, Pacifica Elise Northwest, Beat, Twilight Sparkle, N
  • Enemies: All ascended Yu-Gi-Oh! villains, especially "Maximillion" Pegasus J. Crawford, The Child Abuse Supporters, Ghetsis Harmonia, Relius Clover
  • Additional Character Relationships: Seto Kaiba (older brother and his biggest Idol), Noah Kaiba (step-brother)
  • Conflicting Opinion: Little Kuriboh, Dean Ambrose
  • Due to the combined efforts of Noah Kaiba and Dean Ambrose, Noah being his step-brother and Ambrose being able to relate to him through both having troubled childhoods, Mokuba was able to properly ascend into the Pantheon. His first action was of course to find his older brother Seto, with them rarely being seen apart.
  • What startled most deities the most about Mokuba is how different he was in the beginning of the original story compared to the story most deities are familiar with. Originally, Mokuba was outright cruel and actually tried to kill Yugi and Jonouchi via a Russian Roulette dinner and wanted to cut-off Yugi's fingers if he lost at a game of Capsule Monster Chess. He cheated in both these instances, but what shocked deities the most was what when Seto subjected him to a virtual penalty game after he lost for the 3rd time in Death-T (which is a whole other story) and called him a loser. While Mokuba himself did get scorned, Seto got the wrath of the other older brothers in the pantheon (especially Yu Narukami). Thankfully, both of them are much better in the telling most are familiar with and Mokuba's forgiveness and idolization even after all of the that gave him the title.
  • Has some issues with LittleKuriboh, but it's less on how he treats him and more on how to treats Seto, as uncaring and treating him more as an annoyance.
  • Apparently puberty for him means thinking that he's a Pokemon. While that ended rather quickly, many Pokemon Deities will say he sounds like a lot of Pokemon and Trainers. He seems to get along well with the Pokemon Deities considering they're pretty similar to the figures from the Capsule Monster game he likes to play (albeit, they're living creatures). Venusaur and Tyranitar seem to have especially taken a liking to him considering he sounds like their pre-evolutions, Bulbasaur and Larvitar.
  • Considering his title of Big Brother Worship, he has become friends with other deities who also look up to their older brothers in high regards, however unsurprisingly most were female. Tigger seems to have taken a liking to him as he reminds him of his relationship with his friend Roo.
    • Out of all these gods, he gets along with Nanako Dojima quite well (in fact, she once had a temple in this very house) and is amazed at how she has so many people who love her. Of course, he was shocked to learn that, just like her "Big Bro", she carries along her own Persona which she demonstrated when the two were unexpectedly hit with a Heartless attack. And then he learned how she became skilled in using a scimitar, beheading a zombified version of his brother while the scimitar was set on fire (It's a Long Story), and stabbed someone's eye out in self-defense (Again, It's a Long Story).
  • Considering what kind of parent Gozaburo Kaiba was and what he did to Seto when they were younger, he is against all abusive parents in the Pantheon. Special mentions goes to Ghetsis for adopting N for his own needs and basically ignoring his adopted daughters, Athena and Concordia. Which reminds him of what Gozaburo did to Seto, him and Noah.
    • He's also been helping Seto with getting Pacifica Elise Northwest her family inheritance early. Considering what type of parents her are and what his and Seto's relatives did with their inheritance when their biological parents died, he feels like Pacifica is someone who deserves it than her parents.
  • He was nearly traumatized when he heard what happened to Seto during the The Friendship Asylum. Being brainwashed by Yugi (who was brainwashed at the time), who then used him as a puppet to trigger a Zombie Apocalypse for the goal of the Pantheon's destructionnote . The poor boy was left in tears that took the effort of all his new Pantheon friends and older brother to snap out off.
    • Afterward, he went to Princess Peach to thank her for helping his brother after the what happened. The two later bonded over the kidnapping experiences and when Mokuba had to save Seto in a video game (where the was a lookalike of him dressed as a princess and he dressed up like said princess), over tea and a chocolate parfait (his favorite).
  • Looks at BROKEN Matt Hardy in disgust; it's one thing to have a rivalry with his brother, but making his brother become his Obsolete Mule and then turning Jeff into "Brother Nero"?! That is absolutely wrong. It doesn't help that Mokuba was kidnapped in the final tale of what was the "Project" and he doesn't trust the elder Hardy at all even though BROKEN Matt's intentions were for good. He's sympathized with Jeff, but he's not willing to go dye his hair different colors… not yet, anyway.
  • Was horrified by Ambrose turning against his Shield brother Seth Rollins, who everyone thought he'd forgiven for his own prior betrayal, and even more shocked at everything Dean was saying on the wrestling shows regarding both The Universe promotion and The Shield's identity, not the least of which being revealing the truth about the names of The Shield members on the way to discarding his own and returning to his original name of Jon Moxley — things Rollins had never done even when he was serving The Authority. In fact, based on Seth's habit of alienating The Authority's members while using them to climb to the top, Mokuba deduced that he may have been even more of a hazard to the McMahon family's control project from the inside. This all seemed to indicate the inner guilt that Rollins had even before Seth realized it himself, a guilt that was completely lacking in Moxley. While Mokuba could understand Mox's disillusionment with things, he felt the man had crossed a line somewhere and so declared his support for Seth in the two's conflict. Impressed, Rollins took it upon himself to fill the void Moxley had seemingly left behind as Mokuba's Big Brother Mentor. Mox, for his part, says he's proud of Mokuba for being willing to take a position opposed from him.
