    The Crimson King 
The Crimson King, God of Sigil Spamming (Ram Abbalah, Lord of Discordia, Lord of Chaos, Lord of the Spiders, The Red King. True name: Los')

  • Allies: The Lich, the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, Azathoth, Melkor, Dis, Ungoliant, Giygas
  • Headbutting Vilains with: Amatsu-Mikaboshi, and Nekron, surprisingly enough.
  • On speaking terms with: Shelob
  • Enemies: Roland Deschain, Cosmos, Lucifer, YHVH, King Arthur and all associated with him, both his Gender Flips, Discord, Billy, Spawn, Eliphas, Arachne, Muffet, The Imperium of Mankind, the other Adventure Time deities, The Life Entity
  • Opposed by: Amara, Sheogoroth
  • Commonality Connection with: Sauron
  • Unsure about: SCP-682, Don Thousand
  • No apparent relation: Diavolo
  • There is an overarching evil in the Stephen King multiverse, a maniac Humanoid Abomination who has origins in both the physical world and the Prim. Los', or as he is much more well known by the Crimson King is this overarching evil, a mad were-spider representing chaos. His presence is noticed with the Crimson Eye present, and he seeks to topple the Dark Tower and rule over the chaos of the Prim.
  • Has murky origins. There are some who believe he is a relative of Pennywise, given he can cast the Deadlights and turn into a were-spider. It's unclear if they are, however. He does feel some familiarity with Ungoliant, however, as they are monstrous forces supposedly from the Primordial Chaos with spider association. He is interested in Shelob as well.
  • A more definitive origin is that he is the spawn of the Crimson Queen, a monstrous insectile succubus from the Prim, and Arthur Eld, the Mid-World version of King Arthur. Those from Arthurian myths are very disturbed by this, and any remotely benevolent spider-deities like Arachne and Muffet are disgusted by him. Billy was absolutely terrified by him.
  • Seeks to bring about "Discordia" by toppling the Dark Tower and the multiverse it created. As such, Cosmos considers him a mortal foe for seeking the end of all things, and YHVH the same along with being a force of chaos. The Imperium of Mankind agrees with that assessment. Lucifer has made it clear that he doesn't represent the kind of chaos the Grand United Alliance of Chaos does, instead seeing him as the spawn of pure madness.
  • Other forces of chaos are on bad terms with him. While the Crimson King thought Amara would side with him, she doesn't exactly like the reminder of the evil of primordial forces and thinks he's a batshit crazy caligula. Discord thinks what he's doing is completely insane. Amatsu-Mikaboshi, the Chaos King agrees with his methods, but prefers to be alone in the chaos and is only using him. And while Don Thousand's chaotic world along with spreading chaos might be something the Crimson King likes, he is not sure what to think of it as is.
  • Melkor looked upon the Crimson King and wondered if Sauron had finally come across his line of thinking. They share a lot of similarities, but while Sauron's goal is order, the Crimson King has his line of thinking. And to the terror of pantheon, they ended up siding with one another in their joint goal of destroying all creation. So long as he doesn't try to pull a fast one like Ungoliant did.
  • Sides with the Grand United Alliance of Destruction. Nekron has some reservations about him. While he does seek the extinction of all life, he envisions himself as a force of order to the chaos of life and isn't sure if he likes the idea of the Prim and Dark Tower falling-he wants a void to rule over. For the time, the Crimson King is a useful pawn as long as he doesn't try to overthrow him.
  • The Lich had a much more positive opinion on the Crimson King. The Lich is believed to champion the Primordial Chaos as the last scholar of Golb and knows what came before time and nothing. He believes the Crimson King to be a kindred spirit and the Prim part of an expanse of that ancient chaos. This has gotten Los' the contempt of the other Adventure Time deities. The Lich believes he may be a scholar of Golb that was lost and forgotten.
  • The degrading of the world has reduced to an insane screeching wretch, killing his court and himself. He became an undead creature that was swiftly dealt with, all that's left was his creepy red eyes, forever powerless. However his true form remains imprisoned in the Dark Tower, so he is likely much stronger than he seems.
  • The decay of power, mind and self is something that Dis felt a deep kinship. The Crimson King is as much an opposition to existence as he is Satanic Archetype. He felt his madness and chaotic powers in the Blind Idiot God as well, believing that it might have a role in the Prim's existence. And he felt a familiarity with Giygas due to how they have both devolved into insane forces of destruction.
  • He might have some connection with SCP-682, as 682 is an Eldritch Abomination amicable to known life. 682 doesn't care for him but seems to tolerate him. This might suggest that SCP-682's origins are related to the Primordial Chaos predating creation, or it could just mean the Crimson King is so eldritch he doesn't trigger the Hard-To-Destroy-Reptile's Berserk Button. It helps that they both want to terminate the living as we know it.
  • Despite being another insane deity of chaos in the Pantheon's ranks, Sheogorath isn't at all fond of him either. Besides having fought against Mehrunes Dagon and his forces who have similar goals when he was once mortal and having his own realm to look after, he finds the Crimson King's motivations to destroy the Dark Tower surprisingly despondent for such an insane god.

  • Mothra is among the most significant kaiju that Godzilla has encountered and while the two have gotten into conflict multiple times, they are also capable of working together under the right circumstances. Mothra's presence can easily be determined via the arrival of a mysterious egg and a pair of small fairies known as the Shobjin are affiliated with Mothra. A Mothra larvae hatches after some time, which is then followed by a large cocoon appearing in some area. After enough time has passed, an adult Mothra emerges from the cocoon and engages in battle against an enemy. Although these battles end with the threat defeated, the adult Mothra perishes during that conflict. In the aftermath of all this, another egg is discovered, proving that even if one Mothra dies, another will eventually carry on the legacy of its parents.
  • A group of explorers managed to find a giant egg during one of their expeditions, prompting some questions as to where it came from. They decided to leave the egg alone for the time being so that they can get someone to explain what's going on, but by the time they returned, the egg hatched and a larvae emerged. The group was also introduced to a couple of diminutive fairies who stated that they were associated with the egg and creature, known as Mothra. During that time, some giant malevolent creatures attacked the area where the larvae was at and after a nasty battle, the creature wrapped itself in silk, presumably to rest. The explorers left the area again, suspecting that something will emerge from that cocoon at some point. Their suspicions were later proven true when those same monsters attacked a large city, with Godzilla trying to fend off those threats. Just as things started to get dire with Godzilla taking significant damage, the fully-grown Mothra swooped onto the scene and attacked Godzilla's enemies. The battle grew more intense and while Mothra put up a good fight, it was finished off by one of the monsters, but that threat was weakened enough for Godzilla to land the finishing attack on it. A few days following the incident, reports of an egg identical to the one the explorers found previously surfaced, leading many to surmise that it wouldn't be the last of Mothra.
  • Despite the whole Death Is Cheap principle that's prevalent across the Pantheon, Mothra isn't a deity that really falls into that rule. Given how there's a new Mothra egg that shows up whenever the current Mothra dies, the House of Life and Vitality did mention that not only have they never seen a Mothra resurface at that house, but that they've never seen any additional eggs show up there. It's mostly been reported that any additional Mothra eggs that have appeared tend to be in more nature-based settings.
  • While it is the giant butterfly that's prevalent in the world of Godzilla, it's not the only one that's flying around making sure threats are in check. Mothra Leo, who is the son of a previous Mothra and has access to a wide selection of powers, learned about the arrival of regular Mothra and set out to meet her. Although it's safe to say that the Mothra in the Pantheon isn't the same as the one that gave birth to him, Mothra Leo was more than willing to team up with her whenever there's something threatening the world.
    • Things are a lot more contentious between the Mothra lineage and Battra, who is a darker counterpart of Mothra that is much more extreme in trying to keep nature in balance. A previous Mothra was able to reason with Battra and defeat Godzilla at one point, though if Battra were to work with the Mothra line again, it's likely only to happen if there's something dangerous that both can't ignore (which may or may not include Godzilla on one of his bad days).
  • Given their interest in insects, Sig and Agitha were among those who wanted to meet up with Mothra in earnest. It came as a bit of a surprise to them that Mothra was worshipped as a goddess of sorts back in its homeworld. While they don't have a lot of time in their hands to get involved with Mothra's actions, Sig and Agitha are more than willing to provide Mothra their support no matter how small that support might be and are grateful for what Mothra does.
    • Nausicaä was another deity fond of bugs that took an interest in in Mothra, though that ended up being to a much greater degree than Sig and Agitha after learning about Mothra's role as being a protector of Earth. Having been used to industrial problems that threatened nature's serenity, Nausicaä is more than willing to go along with Mothra whenever the butterfly is busy fighting against monsters that threaten the harmony of nature. Mothra has also become protective of Nausicaä given her devotion and resolve.
  • Although a guardian of Earth, it soon became clear that Mothra wasn't the only one that had that duty in the Pantheon. There were a multitude of Earth protectors in the Pantheon that wanted to meet Mothra and gain a powerful ally to help out with their goals. Captain Planet was able to secure an alliance with Mothra for many of the same reasons that he was able to become friends with Mothra Leo.
    • Despite sharing similar goals when it comes to Earth's protection, the methods of some deities in making sure nature is thriving has proven questionable in Mothra's view. Viridi, who has gotten along with Battra, was among those that Mothra is mixed about and their encounter ended up being rather tense. San, who has been making an effort to try and get Battra to limit his attacks on those that truly threatened the environment, was with Viridi during the latter's meeting with Mothra. San explained to Mothra about herself and Viridi and although the butterfly was much more understanding about San's plight and how she got better thanks to Ashitaka, Mothra is still wary about Viridi in the long run.
  • One of the missions that Susan Murphy and her monster friends took part in involved helping out Mothra Leo fend off some dangerous monsters that the butterfly was struggling with. As much as Susan and friends put in the effort to help out, it wasn't enough to fend off the threats. The team was surprised to see another giant butterfly show up and help them out when they and Mothra Leo were in danger. After the monsters were taken care of, Insectosaurus took a lot of interest in the regular Mothra and the team learned a lot about it, especially Mothra's role in protecting Earth. Susan and co. are more than thankful to have someone like Mothra to help out in addition to Mothra Leo.
  • The Mothra lineage has long been used to fighting an assortment of giant monsters that threatened the planet in more ways than one. Not only does the Pantheon house such threats, but Mothra also has to go against an assortment of others that are willing to destroy Earth out of malice. Villainous pyromancers such as Ragnaros and The Firebird (with the latter being a major source of fear for Mothra) have proven exceptionally problematic as not only is their capacity to spread destructive fire great, but their powers can potentially take care of Mothra at a much quicker rate than normal.
  • Albert Wesker has been someone who has been looking at the DNA of various creatures so that he can improve his various experiments and try and take over the world. Hearing about Mothra's strength motivated him greatly to pursue methods in trying to extract DNA from the creature, especially after learning about how Mothra's DNA is apparently valuable. Given how powerful the kaiju is and how resistant it will be against anyone trying to target it, Wesker is more than willing to bide his time to make sure his plan of getting his hands on Mothra's DNA works out. Wesker has also told Birkin about this, with the latter having apparently stored a poisonous moth in his lab back then and Birkin is considering looking further into Mothra's capabilities with Wesker's help.
  • Learning about The Radiance, a moth-like creature that uses mind-control on its victims and is capable of unleashing a plague that can kill a large number of beings and bring about environmental ruin, was something that upset Mothra significantly. What caused Mothra to become enraged was learning that The Radiance tried to take control of Mothra Leo and Battra at one point just to try and get some powerful beings on her side. Mothra opted to fight back against The Radiance for what it did, with the latter being prepared to brainwash Mothra and have it join The Radiance's Hive Mind. However, Mothra Leo, Battra, and Zeratul arrived just in time to make sure that Mothra didn't fall victim to The Radiance and the four were able to defeat The Radiance. The Radiance is one of the handful of enemies that Mothra, Mothra Leo, and Battra are willing to fight against together given how dangerous The Radiance is to the Pantheon and themselves.
  • It can also be found in Insects, where some of the Mothra eggs are usually found. It's apparently not the only place in the Pantheon where said eggs can be found.

  • A primordial goddess of light, the Radiance had gifted bug kind with the unity of mind but at the cost of their individuality. Along came the Pale King, who, in addition to freeing bug kind from the Radiance's control, went out of his way to ensure that the Radiance was forgotten by her former subjects. The Radiance, angered by this turn of events, responded by unleashing a plague upon the denizens of Hallownest that left them as mindless husks as punishment for turning their backs on her. In an attempt to protect Hallownest from the plague, the Pale King created Vessels made entirely out of void, and successfully sealed her in one of the said Vessels. Now, however, the Pale King and the Vessels are no longer around to stop her. Now, the light will no longer be forgotten.
  • Before she was revealed to the Pantheon, the House of Insects had gone dark, and all communications between the house and the rest of the pantheon had come to an abrupt end. Nobody knew why communications ceased completely nor did they know what exactly happened to the house. When a scout team consisting Agitha, Shino Aburame and Sig]] was sent to investigate, they found the entire house in ruins, bug deities driven into a hateful frenzy, and large orange boils that had overtaken sizeable chunks of the house. At the center of it all was Volcarona, its normally peaceful blue eyes now colored an orange hue and its white fur covered in cysts. While he denies it to this day, Agitha and Sig assert that the sight of the heavily-infected Volcarona had left Shino screaming in horror.
    • Wanting to understand what kind of tragedy had befallen the house, the team had Volcarona transported to the House of Health and Diseases in hopes of finding out what kind of plague was causing such devastation. Several diagnostics later, it was revealed that at the center of Volcarona's mind was a few platforms adrift in a sunlit sky. Before anything could be done, the sun, having grown wings, immediately teleported out of Volcarona's mind and back into the House of Insects, revealing itself as the Radiance in the process.
    • Realizing that they wouldn't be able to rid the Pantheon of the Radiance, the scout team, having recruited Zeratul after learning of the Radiance's weakness to the Void, began taking measures to limit the Radiance's influence by trapping her in a nearby, void-enshrouded temple and having the Dream Weavers of the Pantheon heal Volcarona and any other insects that the Radiance had infected. While the Radiance was here to stay, at least she would not be able to terrify the Pantheon's resident insects as easily as she could before.
  • Having created an infection that effectively toppled the Kingdom of Hallownest via invading it's inhabitants dreams, the Radiance managed to pique the interest of many a disease-ridden deity within the Pantheon. This summarily resulted in an unspoken arms race over who can subdue and contain her first between the likes of Albert Wesker, who wishes to obtain a sample of the infection in order to strengthen the Uroboros virus, and Ruvik, who believes that the Radiance's Dream Walker abilities could enhance his control over the STEM system by tenfold.
    • Nurgle and his followers, for the most part, consider her a welcome addition to the Pantheon, but have found themselves confused over the Radiance's desire to punish her former subjects with her infection. After all, why would she bless said subjects with such a wonderful plague if she was so intent on punishing them for their disobedience?
    • Many a good Dream Weaver within the Pantheon are repulsed by the Radiance. Ysera is reminded far too much of how she herself was corrupted by the Emerald Nightmare whenever she thinks of the Radiance, Haruto Tsukishiro finds the Radiance's dream-induced infections to be beyond the pale, Princess Luna fears that the Radiance may not be content with controlling the minds of bugs and may try to move onto ponies next. In stark contrast, Dream Weavers such as Freddy Krueger and Antasma love having the Radiance around, and believing that her presence can help expand their influence across the Pantheon's dreams.
  • Many had predicted that she would naturally gravitate towards Galeem, given that they are both horrifyingly evil deities of light. Which made it all the more surprising when the Radiance became engaged in a bitter mutual rivalry with Galeem, with the Radiance under the assumption that something like Galeem will cause people to forget about her and Galeem finding the Radiance's infection too disorderly for his liking. The only reason the Radiance hasn't thrown her lot in with Dharkon yes is that he keeps attacking her under the mistaken belief that she is one of Galeem's allies.
    • Unsurprisingly, this rivalry extends to Galeem's ally, Zamasu. Unlike Galeem, however, the rivalry between the Radiance and Zamasu is more one-sided on the Radiance's part as Zamasu, who had just discovered that the Radiance was only able to have her vengeance on her former subjects because of a lone statue that a few unfortunate miners had dug up, considers her to be just as weak as the deities he had slain in his own universe.
    • In spite of all this, however, the Radiance had found a kindred spirit in Lumine, who is also a light-associated villain who sought to enslave/destroy his subjects. The fact that the Radiance greatly resembles Lumine's final form helps.
  • Wanting to ensnare powerful deities into her Hive Mind, the Radiance once tried to infect the likes of Mothra Leo]] and Battra. While she was successful for a brief moment, the two moths were thankfully broken from their waking comas by a nearby Zeratul. From that point onward, the two moths would find themselves teaming up to combat the Radiance whenever possible not only to avenge their previous infection but also to prevent the Radiance's plague from devastating the environment like it did with the Infected Crossroads.
  • Being from a Dark Souls-inspired Metroidvania, it was only natural when the Radiance made enemies with the Chosen Undead, the Bearer of the Curse, and the Ashen One. Still, the three Dark Souls protagonists have admitted that they love having the Radiance around, as having a light-associated deity around that they can beat up without rendering their efforts All for Nothing has proven to be extremely cathartic for them.
  • Also has a spot in the House of Insects.

Intermediate Gods

    Gawain 
Gawain, The God of Those Ruled by Three and Hour of Power (Sir Gawain, Saber, Knight of the Sun,The White Knight of the Round Table, Gawaine, Gawan, Gauvain, Gavan, Gwaine, Walwain, Walgan, Hawk of May, Hawk of the Plain)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/123_4.png
  • Intermediate God (Greater God during empowerement)
  • Symbol: Excalibur Galatine
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Being Powered by the Sun, Chivalrous Pervert, Lethal Chef, The Big Guy of the Round Table, Shining Knight, Atoning for His Action in the Past That He Blames on Himself, To Be Lawful or Good, The Abel to Mordred's Cain
  • Domains: Sun, Chivalry, Knighthood
  • Undying Loyalty: Artoria Pendragon and Arthur Pendragon (More the former then the latter)
  • Allies: Merlin, Lancelot du Lac, Knuckles the Echidna, Sain, Vita, Signum, Zidane Tribal, Verod Rath, Angelo, Ky Kiske, Reinhardt Wilhelm, Cecil Harvey
  • Enemies: Arthas Menethil, The Killer Rabbit, Nightmare, Deathwing
  • Rival: Shirou Emiya
  • Annoyed: The Black Knight
  • Other: Mordred, EMIYA, Nero Claudius
  • Blessed with Numeral of The Saint, Gawain's strength triple during three hours between 9AM and 12PM and 3PM and 6pm. It's during these times that the sun is in the right position to empower him.
  • When Gawain ascended to the Pantheon, he was confuse when he found there were two Kings of Britain. But despite that, he is shown loyalty to both of them. Though, if he did have to choose between the two as his "King", he would choose Artoria.
  • Because of his Undying Loyalty to his King, some have criticized Gawain's devotion. This is because he is so keen of serving the "perfect" King, he fails to realize the pain they went through. There's also the instant of an alternate Gawain who served a much Knight Templar version without question. Even when she tried to kill him for failing. Though, there are some who are a bit understanding of his situation since he blames himself for Camelot's fall for not being the "perfect" knight and wanting to atone for his action.
    • Still trying to atone, Gawain has joined the GUAG Sacred Knights to serve as a righteous knight. The only complaint he would have is that his King wasn't made its leader.
  • If people want to know why Artoria is such a glutton, blame this guy. Artoria had to deal with Gawain's bad cooking during her time as King. He learned about his bad cooking when he tried to feed his King and she refuse to eat it. He then learned that she prefer the cooking done by Shirou Emiya. After that, Gawain has look to Shirou as a rival in cooking. Though, it might also stem of him trying to figure if he is worthy of courting Artoria.
  • There are many in the Pantheon who are surprise or confuse that Gawain is in speaking terms with Lancelot since the latter killed his brother Gaheris and sister Gareth. However, the reason why is because he forgave the Knight of the Lake before he died and thought his revenge of against him was the cause of the fall of Camelot which many will say it was.
  • Like most knights of his era, Gawain is a known lady's man and will flirt with any of the pretty ladies in the pantheon. Many have refute his advancement but with a smile on their face at his charm words
    • While he will flirt with older women, he stays far away to any who are married. As a knight, he has a responsibility to uphold the code of chivalry.
  • Was confused when others would laugh at his defeat against a rabbit. He felt offended that a Knight of the Round Table would be so easily handled by a fur ball. So he went to battle this "Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog". However, he was taken by surprise by the ferocity of the leporidae. Though, Gawain was able to handle the adversary to not suffer greatly, but he has to admit afterwards: That rabbit's dynamite.
  • Has had shaky relationships with both Nero Claudius and EMIYA, or a version of him, as he bad mouthed the two once. This surprised Artoria as she remembered him never once looking down on his foes. Though, his jerkassery might have been due to his overzealous role as a Servent to his master. He has since apologized for his rudeness and the three are rumored to have formed a team.
  • Back in Camelot, Gawain acted as the King's dept collector. Or to be more specific, he was the personal Loan Shark. And he took his job very seriously and would attack anybody who didn't pay up. Hearing this, certain members in the House of Commerce have asked him to collect on debts. He refused, however, as he only collects for his King.
  • Is currently in a difficult relationship with his "brother" Mordred. On one hand, he hasn't forgotten the fact she rebelled against their King and was the one to kill him. But he did notice the slight change in her demeanor that's for the better. For now, the two haven't cross path so their true feelings for one another is still unknown. But there is one thing the two can agree on: they don't care for their mother, Morgan le Fay.
  • Like Artoria and Lancelot, Gawain learned that Knuckles the Echidna played him in a different world. While he did befriend him, he didn't really cared for whole attempting suicide which would go against his code of honor.
  • Befriended both Sain and Angelo as the two are Chivalrous Pervert like him. The three often spend half their time complimate the beauty of the women in the Pantheon and the other half hitting on them.
  • Respects The Wolkenritter's Signum and Vita for being loyal knights to their master Hayate. The feeling is mutual for the two. Though, Signum wish Gawain would stop hitting on her.
  • Encounter the fabled Pantheon Black Knight at a river's brook. No strangers to these type of Knights, Gawain did battle with him, expecting a challenging match. However, the battle ended quickly to his favor after slicing his head off. Which then tried to bite his ankles.
  • Can also be found in Power Levels and Appearance.

  • Respected by: The Beast
  • Fears: The Doom Slayer
  • ManBearPig. This chimeric monstrosity was first thought to be a mere windmill issue, that Al Gore was using to get attention. However it turned out to be real. It made a Deal with the Devil in the past; the older generation could enjoy comforts, but in time it would go on a rampage. And the monstrosity was so dangerous that when Satan himself was summoned to stop him, Satan lost. BIG TIME. A deal was made that he would go away if creature comforts like soy sauce were sacrificed. Human nature being what it is, they simply made a deal for it not to attack for another five years, but with far worse retribution by then.
  • Meant to personify global warming; the older generation are accused of starting about it, being imaginary at first reflects the writers' doubts at the time, and the "deal" to get rid of ManBearPig is a cynical view on ignoring the issue only for it to inevitably be too late. Some have come to believe that the Night King and White Walkers are also a global warming allegory. Given their homicidal views on humanity, the two work together.
  • The Grand United Alliance of Evil was impressed by his destructive capabilities, however scoffed at him being a Generic Doomsday Villain. But in the words of the Lich, "he knows exactly what he is". ManBearPig is an allegory for a major problem less than a person. And the beast has stated(in writing, he can't really speak) the refusal to give up creature comforts to stop him, just push back later, is proof that Humans Are the Real Monsters. This restored the respect the GUAE had for him, and Nyarlathotep became fond of him.
  • ManBearPig is a dire enemy to the GUAN and the Nature Preservers, what with being an allegory for global warming. If there was ever an arch-enemy for Captain Planet beyond his own universe...well, Hexxus is number one, but ManBearPig is number two. So naturally the personification of pollution gets along swimmingly with the beast. The Lich is a lot more serious and grim, however he does have some fondness to MBP as he is the embodiment of nuclear waste and pollution, another form of environmental devastation. MBP's not an Omnicidal Maniac, but he'll work with that; he does enjoy mass slaughter.
  • ManBearPig, being a demon, is naturally at odds with the angels in the pantheon. Despite his slaughter of the South Park Satan he's on neutral terms with most devils, however, though that's mainly because most are nastier and meaner than the one he iced. The Beast respects him as he considers MBP proof that evil is eternal and humans are foolish monkeys addicted to their creature comforts.
  • Zamasu loathes ManBearPig as he personifies the evils of human neglect and their ruination of the environment. MBP chuckles at this because Zamasu has betrayed everything the Kaioshins stand for. He is more interested in combating demon slayers, due to the very high price that's been put on him. MBP is confidant their efforts will be in vain, boasting so long as greed and neglect exist, he'll always be there.
  • Has a grotesque appearance, due to being half-man, half-bear, half-pig. When it's pointed out he should be a third each, he'll bite the heads of whoever says so. It can certainly be said that unless they're evil, bear and pig deities are pretty horrified of him. Yeah, even Bashmaster. The porcine Ganondorf, by contrast, pals around with ManBearPig. This comes from them being ever-present evil forces that'll always return, though it's human neglect and greed which prevents MBP from going away.
  • Finds the Killer Rabbit hilarious, and enjoys joining in its slaughter. ManBearPig seems to be friends with the Minotaur too, for they are monstrous hybrids of man and beast. The Minotaur isn't concerned with devil deals or allegories, but MBP has convinced it to join in and get revenge on mankind. He has convinced Dag to join him in full, persuading him he can have "all he can eat".
  • Though they want nothing to do with him, ManBearPig is fascinated by the Incubators. Mainly, they're polar opposites in a way. MBP represents global warming and deals with mortals, exploiting their greed and sloth. The Incubators want to prevent damage to the environment on a universal level, doing terrible things to prevent heat death. They find him wildly destructive. He thinks they're "good intentions" are full of shit; they only want to preserve THEIR people and don't care about the rest of the universe. It's an understandable argument from MBP.
  • Benefits from gullible idiots and greed, so he has a number of gods who he makes devil deals. They're smart enough to put the caveat of "don't interfere with my interests", though they also already have contempt for the environment. Mr Burns was an obvious example, who made a deal to reclaim the trillion dollar bill from Cuba. Dr Weil and the Grox want the environment ruined anyway. And the diabolical pig Napoleon doesn't care so long as he has power during his lifetime.
  • The monstrosity reminds Lucas of Porky's chimera; although this one isn't an amalgamation of previously existing beings, the grotesque fusion similarities are still there. And he hopes never to meet ManBearPig. Though MBP is reminded of Eric Cartman with Porky, he's not interested enough to work with him.
  • Though some regard ManBearPig as an absurd allegory for the dangers of global warming, MBP himself chortles at the knowledge that killer kamikaze birds are a symptom of it. Rod believes that he was the one who summoned the birds in the first place, which is a world like South Park is an absurd enough thing that it might just be true.
  • The world of Futurama had a solution to ManBearPig that may prevent the citizens of South Park from facing retribution if done in the five year mark; harvest ice from Halley's Comet. For centuries, MBP was actually wary this was stopping him and he raged at the Ice and Cold sub-house for being thorns in his side. Then the ice ran out, and the Earth was only saved from its predicament because it was physically moved into a larger orbit, the demon has been laughing uproariously at the foolishness of man.
  • There is only one deity that ManBearPig fears, as any demon should; the Doom Slayer! His only defense against him was warning that while he may be able to defeat his physical existence, the global warming he represents is a foe he cannot slay. Doom Slayer ignored this and gave ManBearPig some much needed karma, leading the beast to whimper away and lick its wounds.
  • ManBearPig owes a debt of gratitude towards John Marston since it was the adventures of the Van Der Linde Gang that encouraged humanity to agree to letting him wreak havoc on future generations to come. He's even asked him to let him know if anyone else from the Gang ends up in the Pantheons.
  • Has never been seen in the same room as Piggsy. While both Ax-Crazy and ferocious, MBP disregards any claims of him being another man-bear-pig. Man-pig, yes, but is lacking the bear half.

  • Enemies: Zed, Raiden (Metal Gear), The Man with No Name, Jesse McCree, Lucky Luke, Garen, Katarina, other lovers and couples
  • A psychotic serial murderer from the island nation of Ionia who believes his murder to be art. He was imprisoned after he was captured by the Kinkou Order until a cabal within the Ionian court released him when Noxus invaded Ionia. With his guns as his brush and the entire world as his canvas, he is prepared to make a terrifying piece.
  • He despises Kusho, the master of the Kinkou Order, for his arrest and wants to murder him himself. However, when he found that Zed already got ahead of him and denied his revenge, he wants Zed to be his next and greatest piece. Of course, this wasn't the first time they met, Zed wanted him to die but was denied by his master and Shen, which influenced his resentment and abandonment of the Kinkou Order entirely.
  • He horrified most of the House of Craft in his "artistic" vision. Jhin doesn't take the criticism well and has been considering making the entire House "burst" with elegance and beauty.
  • On his arsenal is a pistol that can only carry 4 bullets, a grenade that could bounce up to 4 foes, a trap, and a rifle. Did we mention it shoots up to 4 times?
  • Considering how he sounds, Raiden would be wary of him considering how his psychotic personality reminds him of his "Jack the Ripper" persona, even if the latter is more violent than the Mad Artist.
  • He is very jealous of Sona for trying to "steal" his spotlight and attention away from his "art." With a lot more musicians in the Pantheon, whose to say that he resent those folks as well.
  • He dislikes other killers and criminals, especially Draven and Jinx, because of their lack of subtlety and artistic vision compared to his own. Especially when they are completely unsubtle about their murder spree like having massive explosions, having an unnecessary amount of gun and rockets, and dressing horribly.
    • He found the Joker to be very unsophisticated and meaningless. He is rather insulted that the Joker commits murder as a joke rather than a "serious" motive like art.
    • Though admiring the beauty of Alfred Drevis's "dolls," Jhin find his composition to be uninteresting and his material to be uninspiring. In fact, Jhin is disappointed that he murdered for crafting rather than creating art through murder.
  • He believes that everyone wears a mask of some sort... it's just that he believes that his is much more believable than any other.
  • He is not one to remain static forever. He often switches gear to be more expressive of other means of murder like the High Noon, and macabre worshipper of Blood Moon demons, and a hacker turned cyborg killer. His fascination with cowboys and the West may have been a fever dream where he used to be a gun-for-hire.
  • With many rumors of the romance between Garen and Katarina, Jhin considers it to be potentially his greatest masterpiece. An enchanting duet between star-crossed lovers bound by the boundaries of mortality and fate, in which he wish for the two to fight so that they could embrace with the lotus (which is his bullet). Both found him to be repulsive, in which he would have done it to two lovers anyways, not just them.
  • In carnage, I bloom, like a flower in the dawn.

    Manji 
Manji, God of Non-Nazi Swastika (Killer of 100, The Immortal)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/manji_anime.png
  • Lesser God

  • Worthy Opponent: Gilgamesh (Final Fantasy)
  • In the past, Manji had a hand in causing the deaths of 100 samurai, one of them being his sister’s husband which would later lead to her death at the hands of other swordsmen. To atone for his past actions, Manji would vow to kill 1000 evil men, which would allow him to get rid of his immortality curse as well. More specifically, he’s infused with a bunch of bloodworms that fix up his wounds whenever he gets them (which happens a lot) and the only way he can actually die that doesn’t involve completing his mission is through decapitation or a rare poison. He then crosses paths with Rin Asano, a girl who resembles his long-deceased sister, and works with her in fighting off Itto-Ryu and their leader Anotsu Kagehisa, a dojo that wants to increase its influence across Japan and will kill anyone (Rin’s family included) that opposes them. The duo’s bloody journey not only involves the Itto-Ryu, but a whole assortment of morally dubious characters, some much darker than others in terms of actions.
  • After another arduous adventure, Manji was resting somewhere when he was visited by Yaobikuni once more, who gave him some sort of cryptic message claiming that many worlds, including the one where he’s in are connected to each other. While it was clear he wasn’t interested in seeing Yaobikuni once more, her words confused him for a bit before he heard some loud noises coming from afar. The noises were the result of a sadistic swordsman who only was someone who Manji had never seen before, but looked like someone who wasn’t from his world thanks to using a more advanced fighting style. Manji got in a fight with the criminal and as usual, Manji suffered plenty of injuries, but was able to recover from them and defeat the perpetrator. Manji then noticed how some of the swords his last fighter was using were imbued with unusual properties and that they were from a place known as “the Pantheon”, with Manji surmising that this Pantheon was what Yaobikuni was talking about in regards to connected worlds. In any case, Manji was given a glimpse of how different the wider Pantheon was compared to what he was used to and whether he wanted it or not, he’s now part of it.
  • One aspect of the Pantheon that Manji isn’t happy about is how those with designated titles (himself included) don’t stay dead even if they’re killed. Manji wasn’t able to get rid of that immortality curse even after helping Rin get her revenge and getting involved with the Pantheon basically ensured that even if Manji got inflicted with a certain poison or decapitated, then he’ll just come back to life after a period of time through circumstances not related to bloodworms. From his point of view, the Pantheon is simply an extension of his immortality curse and trying to get rid of it just got a lot harder for him. Even if there are others who are already immortal prior to finding the Pantheon like him, he’s ultimately someone who would rather die a comparatively “normal” death in a normal setting instead of having to live forever in a strange interconnected world.
  • If there is something that Manji is annoyed with, it’s how plenty of people in the Pantheon associate the swastika that he wears with Nazism, a concept that existed well past the Edo period. The way his swastika is arranged on his clothes is very different from how Nazis use that swastika and he’s made a point to not associate himself with them given their actions. That said, he was a bit surprised to learn that at least a few other people in the Pantheon who aren’t Nazis wear swastikas, with Lance (who’s part of a group of eccentric adventurers) being one of them. Beyond that aspect, Lance started off performing questionable actions before reforming akin to Manji, though while they’re still morally grey, Manji will perform genuinely heroic actions if pushed too far in contrast to Lance’s more consistently extreme actions. Lance sometimes acting like an actual Nazi (though one with noble intentions) despite the swastika he has didn’t sit well with Manji, even taking into account the disparate time periods they’re from.
  • Manji and a samurai known as The Wolf shared quite a bit in common with each other alongside some notable differences. Both have some form of immortality and have taken on an assignment in protecting someone, but the two have differing backgrounds. More specifically, Sekiro has done heroics, but is at risk of succumbing to dark power within while Manji started off as an amoral criminal, but has worked to atone for it and (as far as anyone is concerned) doesn’t seem to be in any danger of falling back to his darker past. Sekiro is someone who prefers to keep to himself, but the fact that another samurai with some moral ambiguity and immortality is present wasn’t lost on him and Manji was mildly amused to learn of another like him.
  • Besides Sekiro, there were a lot of other samurai in the Pantheon that served as a contrast to Manji in a number of ways. Afro was one such samurai that Manji learned about and in spite of some superficial similarities in regards to their journey involving fighting against a morally grey person who had dark ambitions of some sort, Afro was very different from Manji otherwise. Afro didn’t start off as a bad person, but trying to attain revenge sent him down a dark path from which he never really recovered from while Manji had to atone for his past actions while helping Rin get her revenge. In some ways, Manji sees Afro as a version of himself who, after witnessing the killing of someone they cared about, went down a darker path and alienated almost everyone else from their life doing so. Afro is someone who prefers to keep to himself, though if circumstances force him to fight against Manji, then the Killer of 100 is more than willing to take up that challenge.
    • Heishiro Mitsurugi ended up being another samurai of whom Manji noticed some similarities with. Both don’t have a true master and are willing to take part in a good fight if given the chance to do so, though Manji doesn’t have a specific foe of interest unlike Heishiro. The two found themselves in battle against each other at one point and it didn’t take long for Heishiro to notice Manji’s immortality and variety of weapons available after getting a few good hits in on the Killer of 100. While not denying that Manji is a skilled swordsman, Heishiro is looking forward to a rematch with him as that first battle ended with them dealing with some assassins that were sent to target the two.
  • Throughout his journey, Manji has used plenty of unorthodox swords he has access to in order to fight plenty of other characters who have their own interesting blades at their disposal. This ended up drawing the attention of sword-wielders in the Pantheon who either have access to a much wider selection of weapons as Manji or those who simply want to take one of Manji’s swords for themselves. On that note, there happened to be two separate individuals named Gilgamesh who had some interest in the variety of swords Manji has, but in the case of the Servant who bore that name, he doesn’t believe that Manji stands much of a chance against him and his Gate of Babylon. As for the multi-armed swordsman named Gilgamesh, he actually engaged in battle against Manji at one point and had more respect towards him than the Servant ever did. While Manji isn’t willing to hand off some of his weapons to The Frenzied Swordsman, his willingness to enjoy a good battle wasn’t that much different from Manji and he has come to respect the multi-armed swordsman for his skills in battle.
  • While Manji has gotten used to his immortality, he still sees it as a burden due to all the pain he suffered throughout his time helping Rin get her revenge. He was able to get along with a handful of individuals in the Pantheon who see their immortality as more of a curse than a blessing such as Dr. Henry Morgan. Both had their own quirks and while Manji knows how painful Henry has had it when it comes to dying, the doctor believes that what Manji has gone through is far more gruesome than anything that’s happened to Henry thus far. Manji coming from an earlier time period than Henry (alongside his perceptiveness in spite of his cynicism) has given the doctor more to understand about and Henry’s experience with medicine and forensics has proven useful to the point that Manji has been appointed as Henry’s bodyguard on a number of occasions.
    • There were other immortals in the Pantheon that Manji learned about, though friendships between some of them weren’t going to happen for differing reasons. Czeslaw Meyer was an immortal with the appearance of a young kid who is able to absorb the memory of other immortals, which includes Fermet, the person who tortured Czeslaw, and a reason why he’s unstable and took a while for him to calm down. Manji being an immortal and someone who’s had a history of killing others gave Czeslaw justification to avoid him and even though Henry has told the young-looking immortal that Manji isn’t a bad person in the long run, it’s going to take time before Czeslaw can fully trust the samurai. Geras, who had the power to manipulate time and was a servant to the even more powerful Kronika, was another immortal and deep down, saw his own immortality as a curse akin to Manji. Despite this, Manji wasn’t willing to work alongside someone who was working for an entity that was basically a psychotic perfectionist even if he understands the burden of eternal life that Geras has to bear.
  • It was already frustrating enough to put up with an immortality curse that’s difficult to get rid of, but the Pantheon having not just malevolent immortal beings, but those who actively seek eternal life was something that irritated Manji. One of those immortality seekers was Alex Wesker and the fact that the source of Manji’s immortality was bloodworms was enough to fascinate her and give her more opportunities to get what she wants. Having had experience with the T-Phobos virus when it comes to researching immortality, she is more than willing to get ahold of some of the bloodworms Manji has in him and see how much she can improve her existing research with them. He is understandably furious that someone is willing to exploit his curse for their own ends similar to what happened when his immortality was exploited by a scientist while in prison (though said scientist later realized the error of his ways) and is more than eager to put an end to her experiments, especially if it means not getting infected with the T-Phobos virus on top of his existing curse.
  • The crux of Manji’s adventure involved being a bodyguard towards Rin, of whom he was protective towards during his time with her. The Pantheon had its share of bodyguards who have devoted themselves to protecting someone, but it was the trio of Mugen, Jin, and Fuu that got Manji’s attention. The three met each other at a teahouse, with young waitress Fuu getting the dueling samurai Mugen and Jin involved with her journey to find a mysterious samurai who smells of sunflowers and overtime, the three grew fond of each other amidst all the bickering throughout their quest. Manji found Fuu to be a bit similar to Rin in terms of being a resilient girl determined to achieve her goal and he found himself in a brief skirmish with Mugen while meeting the group, with Mugen sharing the same interest of fighting a strong opponent as Manji does. Manji has since maintained a friendly rivalry with both Mugen and Jin and Fuu does find Manji to be as capable of a samurai as Mugen and Jin, even if Manji’s immortality ended up affecting his swordsmanship in some capacity.

  • Opposed by: Hareta, Cynthia, Cyrus
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Neo Cortex, Nitrus Brio, N. Gin, Randall Ross
  • Uncertain Relations: Kronika
  • Dr. Nefarious Tropy was initially introduced shortly after Uka Uka was released from his prison, personally handpicking the scientist since he doubted Cortex would be able to collect the crystals after having failed twice. Tropy was the man responsible for creating the Time Twister Machine, a device that allowed him and his colleagues to travel back in time to collect the crystals but ultimately their plans were foiled by Crash and Coco Bandicoot. Befitting someone who has control over time and has created a time-travel machine, Tropy's outfit is extensively time-themed and his personality is very smug, but is prone to breaking down whenever things don't go his way.
  • After seeing a lot of villains (including Dr. Cortex) fail at their schemes repeatedly, especially if it involves the Bandicoots, Uka Uka decided to look for a capable subordinate of his after berating Cortex for his failures again. Uka Uka turned to the House of Time and Temporality for his answer and from there (following a time paradox that threatened the house during all this), Dr. N. Tropy found his way to the Pantheon as a means to help Uka Uka defeat the Bandicoots for good. This also meant that Tropy's Time Twister Machine was rebuilt in the Pantheon, giving a number of villains access to it whenever they need to go back to the past and find something that will help their goals.
  • Emmett Brown has taken a lot of umbridge towards N. Tropy for being a villainous scientist with a knack for time-travel. Tropy saw Brown as little more than a copycat who has to rely on overly specific circumstances (mainly getting a specific type of car to go 88 mph) to achieve time-travel and that Brown has had his own problems occur as a result of time-travel. What offended Brown even more was that Tropy was willing to cause time paradoxes just for fun, prompting Brown to put in more time in his creations so that others can use it to stop Tropy's schemes. A similar kind of animosity exists between Tropy and The Time Traveller as well.
  • Tropy was only mildly bemused when he heard that there was a dog who invented a time machine and that he uses it to send him and a kid back to various historical events. Tropy noted that both Mr. Peabody & Sherman don't have much interesting to offer beyond the fact that the dog has high levels of human intelligence. Whenever he's feeling bored, Tropy will sometimes follow the duo to various time periods and hinder them, though those efforts are always thwarted thanks to some outside circumstance or the fact that someone strong enough (such as The Master of Chaldea) is tagging along with the duo to make sure they don't get into deep trouble.
  • Much like Crash and his friends and foes, Tropy has taken some time off from his regular endeavors to partake in some kart racing. He's actually managed to set a number of specific times scattered across multiple tracks for other racers to defeat (more specifically, a racing ghost will appear whenever someone wants to challenge Tropy's records). If someone manages to beat the times that he has set, he'll actually be a good sport about it. It stands in stark contrast to how poorly he reacts whenever he doesn't place first in a race that he directly participates in.
  • He's been noted to cause time paradoxes just for fun whenever he's bored and its an activity that's carried over to the Pantheon. This has gotten him into a lot of trouble with the Pantheonic Time Police and other deities dedicated to keeping the timestream stable. Given how powerful those kinds of deities are (such as Future Trunks), it goes without saying that Tropy can't last long in a fight against them, so he prefers to retreat if he gets sighted by any of them.
  • Despite being the self-proclaimed Master of Time, he would later learn of other deities with control over time that are far more powerful than he could ever be. Kronika is among those whose powers surpass that of Tropy's (and by extension, whatever time-related invention Tropy can come up with). Tropy talked to Uka Uka about witnessing Kronika fight someone and what she's capable of, with the mask saying that if there was a chance to eliminate a timeline that involves the Bandicoots getting yet another victory, then Uka Uka would be more than willing to take advantage of it. Tropy is also willing to take any sort of opportunity to improve his powers, but it's not something that's going to be easy.
  • RyuZU was a deity that managed to get Tropy's attention thanks to what she is capable of as a Clockwork Creature. Having managed to obtain some notes about her by those who have previously witnessed her capabilities, Tropy found out that her abilities in controlling time potentially surpass his own. He has since ordered a number of operations dedicated to trying to capture her in order to research her abilities and see how he can use them for his own inventions. For the most part, these attempts end in failure and even if she does manage to get captured, she isn't a prisoner for long and Tropy is only able to get so many notes about her before she escapes.
  • One of Tropy's biggest goals within the Pantheon is capturing Dialga, The Temporal Pokemon, and harness its powers for his own benefit. Needless to say, Dialga is not letting itself become a tool for an evildoer like that so easily and Hareta, Cynthia, and even Cyrus are willing to prevent Tropy from getting his hands on Dialga. The first time Tropy attempted to capture Dialga, it ended really badly for him (and the three aforementioned Pokemon trainers weren't there at the time), so Tropy' going to need all the time he can afford so that subsequent attempts don't end up nearly as badly as that one.
  • When Tropy first heard about The Time Eater, he initially assumed that it was an out-of-control creature that was waiting to be taken control of. It was readily clear that he wanted to use it in order to have greater control over time. Some time after witnessing it in action, he learned that The Time Eater was simply something used by Dr. Eggman as one of his schemes to defeat Sonic the Hedgehog. Tropy approached Eggman with the intent of wanting to understand more about The Time Eater. Eggman was more than open to hearing conversations about it, with Tropy even pitching in some advice on how to improve its capabilities. While Tropy hasn't gotten around to creating something comparable, he's very impressed with The Time Eater otherwise.
  • The Dahaka was something that surprised even Tropy given how its a creature not born from any sort of scientific circumstance. It is a creature that exists to put those that attempt to alter any timeline in their place, regardless of the scale and Tropy and his various time machines aren't safe from its wrath. The Dahaka is something that can only be defeated with water-based powers, something that Tropy obviously doesn't have, so all he can do is avoid its sights. Any attempt to try and control it is impossible to say the least, and Tropy is still trying to understand the creature and the threat it poses to him.
  • While he was busy working on some time machines, the Pantheon was struck by the Timenado, requiring a lot of effort in order to put a stop to it. After the threat subsided, Tropy was more than intrigued to learn of something like that and wanted to know who caused it. This would bring him to Randall Ross, who explained to him everything about the Timenado, what it can do, and what he wants to do with it. It became apparent that the Timenado's capabilities intrigued Tropy, though parts of it and Ross' goals slightly frightened Tropy. Any time that Tropy is working with Ross, its mainly out of convenience and making an invention on the level as that of the Timenado is not something that's going to happen soon.

  • Saburo Nishikoyama was a third-rate salaryman that struggled with his work to try and support his family and he had to take additional jobs just to make the cut. One day he performed an act dressed up as a superhero at a department store and after that was done, a hidden passion of his awakened. He kept the suit and from that point onward, the vigilante superhero Skullomania was born, seeking to free the world from all evil and to square off against the top martial artist in existence.
  • After ascending, he loudly proclaimed in front of a big crowd that he would liberate the pantheon of all evil and he has his eyes set in the House of Villainy. Considering his silly and hamtastic demeanor, not many deities took him seriously but then he demonstrated to be a competent combatant and so his reputation has increased overtime.
  • Some where surprised to see him be the chosen deity for Skeleton Motif considering the grand majority of candidates are not exactly heroes but Skullomania is not one of those people. He has claimed that he is going to prove himself worthy of the title.
  • Skullomania takes some cues from Tokusatsu superheroes, his biggest inspirations are the first two Kamen Riders Takeshi Hongo & Hayato Ichimonji, both men who Skullomania has nothing but respect, he even challenged them to a few rounds and the skeleton man held his own against the legendary Kamen Riders. However, the biggest surprise was that two other Kamen Rider deities, Shotaro and Philip, confused him for his mentor Kamen Rider Skull who Skullomania is said to resemble a lot. What gave away that he wasn't their mentor was that he is a lot more serious and calm, something that can't be said for Skullomania.
  • Happy to learn that there were a few familiar faces in the pantheon like Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and Sakura, fighters he respects and has fought in the past. While their universe don't really exist together anymore, Skullomania still has been contacted by them to take down Shadaloo, something that he has been trying to do for a while.
  • Papyrus heard of him and thought that he was copying his style. Especially the red scarf which was characteristic of the skeleton. Though he found later that Skullomania wasn't that bad of a dude, in fact their personalities mershed well together. Sans tolerates the vigilante since he makes Papyrus happy, but he keeps an eye on the human in case he hurts his brother in one of their sparring sessions.
  • While Skullomania is not super serious himself, he can be a force to be reckoned with if understimated. Considering the similar get-up and Dark but Well-meaning intentions, Skullomania ended up becoming friends with the Skull Knight, who he knows hails as a mentor in the art of swordfight. He isn't very good with weapons so he prefers to stick to martial arts in the meantime, but the two consider the other very valuable allies.
  • In one of his many late night patrols, the skeleton hero found himself face to face against the infamous "Hero Killer" Stain. The Hero Killer has heard about Skullomania and his vigilante antics, considering him another worthless hero who only does heroing because he felt bored with life and saw him as his next potential target. Skullomania didn't take kindly that Stain ignored his drive for justice and swore to defeat him and bring him to justice. The two were evenly matched but thankfully Skullomania was aided at the last minute by some of his Tokusatsu friends, forcing the Hero Killer to escape. He swore to capture Stain no matter the cost.
  • Befriended Saitama after learning that his motivations for becoming a hero were quite similar to his. He was also a third rate salaryman that became a hero after finding their everyday life quite boring. Yet Saitama also shares the same spark for heroism and it helped that Skullomania reminded him of his friend Licenceless Rider.
  • Not very fond of evil skeletons, since it doesn't give him a good reputation considering his suit. He never actually expected to encounter living skeletons wandering the halls of the pantheon and considering that most of them are evil, he decided that they were no different from Villains. Although he might quite a few of them that weren't actually that bad.
