    Bolvar Fordragon 
Tell them only that the Lich King is dead, and that Bolvar Fordragon...died with him

Bolvar Fordragon, God of Untold Stories (Highlord, Regent of Stormwind (Formerly), The Lich King, Jailor of the Damned, Lord of Icecrown, Fireblood)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bolvar_fireblood.jpg
As a Paladin 
As the Lich King 
  • Intermediate God (Potentially Greater God as the Lich King)
  • Symbol: The Helm of Domination (Currently)
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (Formerly Lawful Good)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Paladins, Bravery, Sacrifice, Undead
  • Allies: Varian Wrynn, Uther Lightbringer, Harth Stonebrew, Satsuki Kiryuin, Joshua Graham, Xul
  • Enemies: Arthas Menethil, Kel'thuzad, Onyxia, Oryx, Asdrubael Vect, Evil Demons, Evil Undead
  • Pitied by: Alexstrasza and most Good-aligned undead.
  • Opposes: The House of Betrayal (Most evil deities at least) and traitors in general
  • Once known as the brave Paladin that commanded Stormwind during the days that King Varian Wrynn dissapeared and later taking the fight to Northrend against the Lich King, Bolvar seemingly perished when Apocathery Putress betrayed his and the hordes forces at the entrance of Icecrown Citadel. However, he survived after the Red Dragons purified the plague off him with their flames, horribly scarring him as a result and becoming a prisoner for the Lich King. After Arthas' defeat and the need to find a new Lich King, Bolvar offered himself to become the new Lich King with the request of no one finding out what happened to him and only Tirion Fordring knows what happened.
  • Now ascended, his powers as the Lich King has waned, probably because the predecessing Lich King, Arthas Menethil, has established himself long before Bolvar ascended to the pantheon. But Bolvar's presence is not without drawbacks for Arthas, as he still holds a fraction of the Lich King's power in the pantheon and plans to split his army in two to reduce the amount of destruction the Scourge can bring to the Pantheon.
  • The first one to welcome Bolvar was Varian Wrynn, who was heartbroken about his old friend current condition and horrible fate, but Bolvar himself felt proud of his king after the events of the Broken Shore. Uther Lightbringer also came by and felt exactly like Varian did, especially since he became acquiantanced with Bolvar's human form.
  • Thanks to Harth Stonebrew's efforts and certain events, Bolvar can choose to use his human form whenever he is around his tavern and also switch to his "Fireblood" form (the current one without the helm). Unfortunately, Arthas possesses the Helm of Domination so for the moment, he is the true Lich King of the pantheon but Bolvar feels confident that he won't do major damages to anyone in the pantheon.
  • Many were horrified to see him being completely scarred after being burned by the red dragons flame moments before he died. Worse is that, given red dragons' healing properties he never really died in the first place and Alexstrasza feels guilty for condemming Bolvar to the grim fate that he ultimately suffered. But the former Paladin doesn't blame her, after all she and her flight were just doing their job.
  • Having tortured by the Lich King himself but never giving up, many deities were surprised about Bolvar's determination to not fall into darkness and moreso praising for taking up the role as Lich King to save Azeroth from the Scourge's wrath. He sympathizes with Satsuki Kiryuin since she was also subjected to that, by her own mother no less, but never gave up and also painted herself as the bad guy for the greater good.
    • For obvious reasons, he hold deep hatred for those that torture people for fun. When it comes Asdrubael Vect, he thinks he is no different than Arthas and has expressed desire to strike him down.
  • Heard the rumors of the infamous Joshua Graham who was also horrifically burned but survived, which changed him for the better. Both men respect each other and Joshua admires that Bolvar would take the role of an undead monarch just to save the world.
  • Having been killed by a surprise attack from the forsaken during the Alliance and Horde confrontation against the Lich King, it's no surprise that Bolvar holds traitors in contempt especially when you take into account the values he had as a Paladin which he kepts even after becoming the Lich King (albeit a bit twisted). Besides the fact that Arthas is residing in the House of Betrayal, he also doesn't highly of Arvis who holds a title that reminds Bolvar of how he died and how he eventually became what he is today.
  • Being a semi-benevolent ruler of the undead, Bolvar is willing to partner with necromancer and other undead that aline with his goals and those of the Scourge. He is willing to work with the Necromancer Xul in the fight against the Burning Hells, given the Scourge opposes the likes of demons and such. Back in Azeroth, he also struck a deal with the Knights of the Ebon Blade and is willing to cooperate against the Legion.
  • Notorious among the undead for the terrible fate that he endured, even if as he titles states, no one in his world knew except few happened. This is something that Bolvar enforced, because he doesn't the fear that the scourge inflicted upon Azeroth to continue and to spare him from becoming a martyr. Many of the good-natured undead of course, have tried their best to cheer him up but Bolvar doesn't pay them attention.
  • "This last act of sacrifice, is mine."

NOW GO! LEAVE THIS PLACE! And never return...

  • Enemies: GUAE Mecha Cohort, SHOCKER, HYDRA, Gihren Zabi, Anavel Gato, Muruta Azrael, Lord Djibril, Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke
  • Ascended into the pantheon after the end of the 8th Space War, Garrod Ran and Tiffa Adill are the two individuals who learns to become more mature during their adventures in the year After War 0015 due to their mutual connections with each other. Throughout their adventures, the two also learned to stick together as couples for better or for worse.
    • Garrod was initially an immature survivalist who has a shrewd, distrustful attitude which makes him a non-team player. Although he happens to be an idiot, he is also skilled in his job as a Mobile Suit pilot and espoinage. However, his encounter with Tiffa, whom he also develops alot of feelings for her, became the main driving force for him to pilot the Gundam X, and later, the Gundam Double X, in the first place as a means to protect her from anyone who tries to use her for their evil agendas, as well as he evolves into a more reliable team player after he spends time with the crew of Freeden while he also make a decision that he doesn't want to repeat his pasts mistakes again.
    • Tiffa was first introduced as a shy and reserved person due to the horrible things she experienced as a lab rat due to her Newtype powers. Her powers is the reason why she became a frequent target for kidnapping by various factions. However Garrod's feelings and support allows her to warm up and become more open to the crew of Freeden and their allies before she eventually falls in love with Garrod. She also possess a talent in art drawings and being able to communicate with animals.
  • After their ascension, Garrod was quickly enlisted among the ranks of the Gundam Corps after he managed to impressed his peers with his act of protecting Tiffa from any form of villains who tries to use her for their own gain. Because of this, the group also repaired his initially wrecked Gundam Double X, allowing Garrod to pilot his personal Mobile Suit in battle once again.
  • The two seems to have known Kouta Kazuraba all along after they heard of the pantheon in the first place. They also likes to hang out with Kouta's Love Interest Mai as the four of them seems to be proud of each other because they learned to become more responsible people throughout their respective stories.
  • Oher than Kouta, they also likes to hangout with some heroic Kamen Riders like Gentaro Kisaragi, Ryotaro Nogami, Shinji Kido, and Yusuke Godai, as well as Madoka Kaname, Akane Tsunemori, Makoto Naegi, Simon, and Haru Glory, because of their similar personalities. Garrod and Tiffa also start to help them in their battles against their respective enemies in the Pantheon.
  • They also like to hang out with the two-in-one Kamen Rider Shotaro Hidari and Philip as both were amused with each other after they found out that Garrod's Gundam Double X and Kamen Rider Double's CycloneJoker Xtreme bears some similarities in their respective designs.
  • Garrod also seems to have known Naruto all along as he also like to hangout with him due to the fact that they used to be an Idiot Hero before they became more mature over time.
  • Sei Iori once had an imaginary battle with Mao Yasaka, the latter cosplaying as Garrod Ran in that sequence. Unsurprisingly, Sei was quite thrilled to meet up with Garrod for real, as the Gunpla fighter takes an interest on the Gundam Double X's capabilities. Reiji became friends with Garrod as well, especially since they were able to save their respective love interests from their respective antagonistic factions.
  • It should noted that Garrod wanted to ascend as the "God of Wave Motion Guns" due to the Satellite Cannon's destructive power used by his two Mobile Suits, but he was beaten by Juzo Okita, who possess a more powerful Wave Motion Gun in the form of the Space Battleship Yamato. Garrod doesn't mind, though, as both he and Okita respect each other since they use their respective weapons for good.
  • Tiffa likes to to hang out with Mai Misho since she is also good at drawing art like her. The two were often seen drawing pictures together since Tiffa started to attend in the House of Craft since then.
  • Tiffa also became sympathizes with Hotaru Tomoe as both of them has similar personalities while they went a lot of terrible things in their lifefime before they gotten better afterwards. She also became friends with the School Idol Hanayo as well since she was also happens to be shy until she grows into a more confident person like Tiffa.
  • Garrod is often seen being associates with the likes of Eikichi Onizuka, Eddy, and Daffy Duck since they sounded similar whenever they speak in Japanese. Tiffa also happens to be friends with Satoko Houjou, Histoire, Jigglypuff, Mio Sasuga, and Arche Klein due to the same reasons with Garrod.
  • Ryoma Sengoku has been studying their overall capabilities, particularly Garrod's piloting skills with his Gundam Double X and Tiffa's Newtype powers. However, like many deities before, they also gained their disgust towards the mad scientist, considering that Ryoma wanted to use it as a countermeasure towards them.
  • Due to his conviction of protecting Tiffa till the very end, Garrod has started to fight any villainous factions that tries to kidnap Tiffa for their own agendas. As such, he became enemies with Zeon's Gihren Zabi, Blue Cosmos/LOGOS's Muruta Azrael and Lord Djibril, the rest of the Mecha Cohort, and evil organizations like HYDRA and SHOCKER, because these groups set their sights on Tiffa for their malicious schemes. It is a matter of time for Garrod to put a stop on their evil ways.
  • Garrod also became wary upon the presence of Anavel Gato since the Zeon pilot also set his sight on hijacking the Gundam Double X with his plan to use it for destructive means. Garrod has made a point put a stop on Gato from achieving his plans any further.

    ICEY 
ICEY, Goddess of Being Forced Into the Plot (_iCEY._, UCEY, The Chosen One)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dme2mypumaapyia.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: her hair accessories, the symbol that appears before she performs a massive attack, or the "D" and "H" on her sleeves
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: victim of Railroading and rebel of it with the player's help, Robot Girl, Boyish Short Hair, The Chosen One Double Jump, Flash Step even through steel bars, Dashing That Can Practically Be Flight, Iaijutsu Practitioner, Tron Lines, Short Shorts And Long Boots, Shadow Strike ability, Expendable Clone, Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence, Grew Beyond Their Programming
  • Domain(s): Robots, Swordplay, Mission
  • Herald: The Observer, her Robot Buddy and vessel for her mysterious supervisors
  • Allies: Stanley, (Insert Name Here), Zero, X, Aigis, Optimus Prime, Dexter, Victor Stone/Cyborg, Old Man Henderson, Ordis
  • Enemies: The Narrator, Hastur, Megatron, Makuta Teridax, all apocalypse-bringers, the Grand United Alliance of Machines
  • Conflicting Opinion: Monika
  • Every story has a plot, and there are ways to keep the player on the path the game wishes them to take. Some go about it in a blatant hamfisted way, so as such, Stanley of The Stanley Parable would make a fitting representative of being a victim of Railroading…except he's already ascended as God of Action Commands. And so someone else had to be picked for the title. Finding a game with several elements from Stanley's domain, a new candidate has been found.
    • Like Stanley, she has a Narrator who tries to guide her actions every single step of the way, except 1) the Narrator's Chinese, and 2) she had no control of herself and needed the player's guidance until the true ending in response to the Narrator disconnecting her from the player in an attempt to kill her for good. As such, she gets along with Stanley, who's a little envious of her abilities, and opposes the Narrator, given his controlling tendencies and because he once managed to successfully disconnect Stanley from the player, even though it left him all alone.
    • When she first made it to the Pantheon, the first thing she did was — observing her surroundings and herself — cry with Tears of Joy and laugh, which she hadn't been able to do even when she took control of herself, and was initially overtaken with being able to maneuver in the outside world. Now free of the game she was trapped in, she's decided to roam the Pantheon on a journey to find herself. That said, because of her experiences, and because she needed something to be called by, she's identified as ICEY.
  • Wanted to personally meet the player who guided her through her game, since she prayed they would meet again after freeing herself, but the closest she could find was (Insert Name Here), who for some reason also remembers ICEY. She decided that was close enough and was glad to see them, and be able to touch their hands, feel the heat from their skin, walk with them
    • This all came off as a little romantic, much to the envy of others who came to like INH romantically, like the (Doki Doki) Literature Club. Incidentally, both were released from their game worlds thanks to the Pantheon; in ICEY's case, it's through her ascension, and in the club's case, it's through a freak Chaos Magic lightning bolt.
    • While she's only heard her game's Narrator realize how trapped he was in his own domain, she can understand what Monika felt like during her own realization, though deleting most of her world just to spend all her time with the player is sort of like when ICEY's Narrator decided to kill her to be set free from his "chains"; they're not things ICEY can approve of.
  • So she can better protect herself, ICEY's body is the same as the one in her game, complete with all of her abilities, weapon, and Robot Buddy who now continues to observe her on behalf of two unnamed individuals, whom ICEY is now aware of. She regains vitality (both health and energy shield) by destroying mechanical enemies and absorbing their power, putting her on a great advantage against them, though her skills are sufficient even against non-mechanical adversaries.
  • Her mission to destroy Judas might've been an engineered scenario, but it did teach her what she should fight for, and so she opposes any who wish to create any apocalypse, a big example being Alduin, who can manipulate the world around him through the Thu’um. Having battled several robots in her scenario, she especially opposes the Grand United Alliance of Machines.
  • As an evil-fighting robot, she gets along with fellow Robot Girls Aigis and Labrys, fellow sword-user Zero, and other human-supporting robots like Optimus Prime. One thing they like about her is that even if she was "built" for combat, ICEY knows how to show mercy to someone if it can lead to mercy being repaid by another down the line.
    • Because of these noted traits, Labrys took her to a Liberion Arcadia meeting; Ciel and Harpuia instantly approved of her, seeing shades of X in her. 2B seems to like her as well.
      • Speaking of 2B, ever since losing in one spar against her (since not only is ICEY's combat experience limited to two dimensions compared to 2B's three, she's not nearly as well-equipped or skilled as the black-clad android), she's come to see her in a sort of "mentor" light.
    • Newly-ascended Leviathan calls her "noob chick" since she's obviously New Meat when it comes to anything involving teamwork in a fighting unit or 3D combat. Fefnir tried to tell her that that's kind of a diss, but she takes that status in stride, just eager to learn and help out. Eventually she got a little more respect thanks to her incredible dashing skills, so Leviathan started calling her "dash kitten" instead.
  • Gets annoyed when arrows appear with the express purpose of guiding her, and if the direction contradicts what she wants to do, she will go contrary to it, a lingering quirk as a result of the player's guidance.
  • Throughout her game, ICEY discovered that somehow, Hastur, the Yellow King was involved in all of it, and has located him in the Pantheon. That said, after losing to him the first time, she's come to realize that he holds a lot more power here and that she'll need allies before she can even think of taking him on.
    • This drew the attention of (and forged a kinship with) Old Man Henderson, who also has beef with Hastur, and has finished him off once before.

    Pannacotta Fugo 
Pannacotta Fugo, God of Temporary Departures
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pannacotta_fugo_gw.png
  • Theme Song: Faith in Truth
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Stand, Purple Haze
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (was briefly True Neutral for a short time)
  • Portfolio: A good person with terrifying powers, being too powerful to stay in the story, leaving the group to save his own skin, The Smart Guy, Neat Freak, being Enraged by Idiocy
  • Domains: Poison, Loyalty, Crime
  • Allies: Giorno Giovanna, Jean-Pierre Polnareff, Coco, Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin, Turalyon and Alleria Windrunner
  • Enemies: Diavolo, Lesale Deathbringer, Bloody Mary, Nurgle, Typhus
  • Additional Relationship: Bruno Buccellati
  • High Priest: Launch
  • Followers: Bubba, Twist, Elora, Sparky, Ms. Bellum, Herb Simpson, Uncle Max, Dulcy the Dragon
  • Ascended after learning to control the powers of his Stand and evolving it, as well as returning to the Passione Mafia, all while swearing loyalty to Giorno once more. Some people have heard that He personally fought and won against Gold Experience Requiem to regain Giorno's trust, though they have yet to be proven true or false.
  • Giorno and Polnareff were happy to see one of their teammates make it to the Pantheon. Bruno, however, was a different story. While he's happy that Fugo went back to the mafia under Giorno's leadership, he still can't forgive him for ditching them at the time they needed him the most.
  • His Stand, Purple Haze, has bulbs on its hands, each of which contains a dangerous virus. When a bulb is broken or shot, the virus inside it is released and infects anyone, friend or foe, within its range. Anyone infected by the virus will vaporize in a matter of seconds. The overwhelming power of Purple Haze was enough for the powers that be to write Fugo out of the story.
    • In dire situations, it will turn into its evolved form, Purple Haze Distortion, which, in addition to having an even deadlier virus, has the ability to eat and store other viruses for Fugo and his allies to use.
  • While Fugo's Stand is a threat to others, he himself is not immune to its powers. As of late, he's been seen with Coco, trying to make Purple Haze safer for himself.
  • Was hired by several members of the House of School to teach math, but was quickly fired after they found out what he did in response to wrong answers.
    "You goddamn punk! Are you trying to mess with me!? How many times do I have to tell you something before it sinks into your thick skull?! You said that 6 times 5 is 30, so why the hell would your answer be less than 30?! YOU COMPLETE IDIOT!"
  • There have been rumors that Fugo was actually a spy of Diavolo, sent to kill one of Buccellati's teammates. Fugo has profusely denied these claims.
  • His outfit has often been criticized, much to his chagrin. Despite all the mockery, he continues to wear the same kinds of clothes.
    Joel: "'I'm going to wear a strawberry tie, and I'm just going to dress up like shit.'"
  • Has earned the hatred of Bloody Mary, who heard of what he did to the last person he fought who had mirror powers.
  • While he does torture dance every now and then against his incapacitated enemies, he says it's not the same without Mista and Narancia. He awaits the day they ascend so he can apologize for not getting on the boat (as well as the three of them doing the torture dance like old times).

    Paul Bunyan 
Paul Bunyan, God of Lumberjacks and Tall Tales (Berserker)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/paul-bunyan-and-babe-the-blue-ox_8588.jpg
Paul with his faithful blue ox Babe. Image by Ron Borresen.
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His lumber axe
  • Theme Song: His Disney theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, at least back in the day. By today's standards, he's True Neutral.
  • Portfolio: Memetic Badass, Mighty Lumberjack, New Myths, Big Eater, Variable But Still Large Size
  • Domain(s): Lumberjack, Giant, Oil, Myths
  • Herald: Babe the Blue Ox
  • Followers:
  • Allies: Presea Combatir, Montana, Bear Hugger, Johnny Appleseed, Uther Lightbinger, Superman
  • Enemies: Kaldr
  • Opposed by: The Nature Preservers sub-house, all tree-empaths, especially in the House of Nature, all dark-skinned deities, Pocahontas
  • Opposes: Ice deities capable of conjuring massive blizzards
  • Tales of Paul Bunyan are shrouded in myth, and his feats vary wildly in terms of how ridiculous they are, but one thing is constant about him: he was a large bearded man (how large varies), carries an ax wherever he goes, Babe the Blue Ox is his pet (who is also large like him, and measures "forty-seven ax-handles and a plug of tobacco between the eyes"), and runs a logging operation that goes wherever there are trees to cut, with Babe pulling their bunkhouses from one forest to the next. Notable crew members he's had include the Seven Axmen, Johnny Inkslinger the accountant, Joe the cook, and Ole the blacksmith.
    • But, no matter who he's got working for him, or where they go, mother nature was always looking to screw them over. The weather's never anything but blistering heat or sub-absolute zero cold, with occasional flood or fog to liven things up. Trees can be so large men can spend most of their lives chopping at one before seeing it fall. Wildlife ranges from the obnoxious splinter cats and gumberoos to the deadly agropelters and snow wassets. And things like a Winter of Blue Snow or a cornstalk the size of Jupiter is tended to pop up. Paul and his lumberjacks always tackled these problems with varying measures of brute force, genuine cleverness, to the just plain ridiculous.
  • Made friends with Presea, Montana, and Bear Hugger as they are fellow lumberjacks, or at least axe-users.
  • American deities have conflicting opinions with Bunyan. On one hand, his lumber business aided in clearing land for colonization. On the other hand, deforestation is no longer a good thing nowadays.
  • Because deforestation has lost its appeal and because a lot of deities are preservers of nature, Bunyan and his lumberjack crew have difficulty finding a job (buildings are now made of concrete and/or steel
  • Heard about "The Lumberjack Song". It's true he's a lumberjack and he's OK, he sleeps all night and he works all day! But skipping and jumping, liking to press wild flowers, putting on women's clothing, hanging around in bars, wearing high heels, suspendies and a bra, wishing he was a girlie just like his dear mama? Now that's a tall tale if he's ever heard one.
  • Heard that Homer Simpson once starred as him in a reenacting of his tale.
    • And that Uther Lightbinger has an alternate appearance that resembles Bunyan himself.
  • Sly Cooper and his friends are wary around Bunyan, since he reminds them of a villain named Jean Bison, who was also a lumberjack.
  • In a different universe, Paul punched Jack Horner out of a bar for calling Babe a cow, was one of his travel companions in Americana searching Humpty Dumpty's treasure, and also ended up as part of Bookburner's army, which tried to kill the fables of the Golden Boughs Retirement Community (though whether it was through brainwashing or be became some sort of Cessation of Existence zombie wasn't made clear).
  • Given that one of his misfortunes involves a great blizzard that (maybe) lasted for several years, he really has it against the likes of Kaldr and Lissandra. He holds nothing against Queen Elsa, Jack Frost, and other ice-users, but he would rather avoid them.

Lesser Gods

    Abed Nadir 
Abed Nadir, God of the Genre Savvy
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abed_7105.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A video camera, a fortress made out of pillows, and a room with dark walls and orange tape arranged in squares on the walls.
  • Alignment: True Neutral with good tendencies
  • Portfolio: The Genre Savvy, Meta Guys, Tropers and Other Pop Culture Fanatics, Cosplayers, those with Ambiguous Disorders and those who those who lean heavily on the fourth wall without quite managing to break it.
  • Domains: Stoicism, Craft, Creation, Balance, Knowledge, Insight, Awareness, Analysis.
  • Allies:
  • Enemy: The Joker.
  • Complicated Relationship: Nicholas Cage
  • He's a God now. Cool. Coolcoolcool.
  • He actually made a video about his ascension to the Pantheon for his film studies class... one week before his ascension to the Pantheon. He's not an actual prophet or anything (although this did lead him to almost be assigned to the House of Prophecy at one point), he's just that good at recognising what tropes are going to be applicable to his current situation. Some will still approach him as an oracle, however, but those who do are usually too Genre Blind to heed his advice until it's too late. He doesn't mind; he knows as well as anyone that Cassandra Truth is a trope and that it works that way for a reason.
    • He previously had to share the title with General Tarquin, who held the title for evil deities. But things would come to a head when Tarquin made a move to take the entire genre for himself. The two agreed to settle things over a game of XCOM. when the dust was settled, Abed stood victorious. The GUAE insisted that Haley had helped Abed cheat his way to victory, never mind that they themselves tried to hack the game (it took the intervention of the White Hats to prevent that). With that, he now holds the title for all Genre Savvy characters at the cost of becoming more neutral. It also meant that the once friendly relationship with Tarquin has crumbled.
  • He tends to unsettle a lot of the other Gods who pass his way due to his calm, stoic and emotionless nature, his ability to predict what's going to happen to them based on the tropes they're dealing with at any given moment, and his insistence that the Pantheon itself is merely an unofficial collection of various characters from different media assigned various ranks and roles of Godhood for the amusement of those doing the ranking.
  • Although he does enjoy and dabbles in creating fiction, he tends to act best as a documentarian, and has a tendency to follow the members of this House and others with a video camera to record their actions. Even the less Genre Savvy Gods have noticed that whenever Abed's filming them, a lot of chaos tends to follow.
  • He is a huge admirer of Batman and tends to cosplay as him, which has drawn the attention and ire of the Joker. Both the Joker’s attempts to do battle with him and Batman’s attempts to discourage him have met with failure, since Abed’s just so Genre Savvy he’s aware of what they’re doing, and thinks that it's absolutely awesome. He’s also admires the Doctor, although he does believe that the Doctor’s Inspector Spacetime cosplay leaves a lot to be desired.
  • There are rumours that an evil, twisted version of Abed from a timeline where everything went wrong due to a failure to catch a dice exists somewhere out there in the multiverse, as equally versed in tropes as Abed himself but malevolent to boot, seeking to replace Abed and warp reality into a mirror of his own darkest timeline.
  • He is particularly strong at noticing when the Pantheon has undergone a Art Shift, but due to his many issues many — the other Gods included — tend to just view this as symptomatic of a breakdown on Abed's part.
  • Although Abed is one of the lesser-powered Gods, it is unwise to pick battles with him — not only does his innate knowledge of genre tropes enable him to hold his own regardless, but he is also part of a study group of True Companions who will not tolerate any one of their number being messed with.
    • That being said, Abed Nadir has an Achilles' Heel: Nicholas Cage. He can figure out every actor and person in the pantheon, but when asked if Nicholas Cage is a good or bad actor, all he came up with is a spot on hammy imitation and the sad conclusion that "people are random and meaningless." It took a good 2 weeks of therapy to get his head on straight after that, though his friend Shirley did give a hand.

  • Opposes: The Comic Book Guy
  • Uneasy Relationship: Stan Lee, The SCP Foundation
  • Observed by: Charles Victor Szasz/The Question
  • Not to be Confused with: Grigori Rasputin
  • It was recently revealed that the folks from The DCU have decided to use property from the Watchmen once more. This time, they revealed hat Dr. Manhattan was responsible for creating the current state of the DC Universe. This was the last straw for their original writer, one named Alan Moore. He has seen his creations used outside of his original intent for the past few years and now wants to have a greater say in things. With that, he himself applied for godhood. While Stan Lee was initially against the idea, he received an out pour of support from many of his creations. He eventually relented and granted Alan Moore access to the Pantheon. The writer now contemplates what to do with his newfound power.
  • His specialty is the ability to take upon the works of previous workers and tweak them in order to create a better story as a result. He made a storied history with doing that Swamp Thing who probably owes his ascension to him. While his run on the characters were short, they were considered to be one of the signature stories of all time.
    • He also wrote some of the best stories of Superman and Batman in the forms of Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? and The Killing Joke respectively. As such, the World's Finest were happy about his ascension.
    • Barbara Gordon's opinion on the man has been mixed. She believed that her story was left in the cold when the Joker crippled her. On the other hand, her time as Oracle was beloved by many, even when she was able to walk again.
  • Among his DC works, he was responsible for bringing the Spectre back to relevance in his world. He would have appreciated it more if not for the introduction of John Constantine, one of the slipperiest magicians in the Pantheon. You wouldn't see the Blue-Collar Warlock singing his praises, but he does have the writer's gratitude.
  • His most beloved creation was the world of Watchmen It is considered to be one of the best graphic novels of all time and has even been studied in college. While he appreciates the recognition for his accomplishment, he lamented how the book played a part in kickstarting The Dark Age of Comic Books. He was especially miffed with how popular Rorschach when he wrote the Anti-Hero as a cautionary tale.
  • His other well known creation in the Pantheon is the anarchist known as V. It is well known that he himself doesn't mind a few of such ideas to shake up the system. Unfortunately for him, that too became a film. He can at least smile at how it failed to impress the critics.
  • His biggest Berserk Button is with people who try to adapt the works of previous art, especially his own. That includes exploring other parts of his work without his permission. He resisted attempts by DC to create a sequel, but as he did not have the rights to the characters, the company eventually made one.
  • Of course whenever that props up, some people snark about his own adaptation of various Victorian Era figures called The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. While the book was well received, he got a bit of flak for the depiction of a certain number of characters, especially with Mina Harker. Alan Moore has defended his work, citing its many accolades. That too became a movie that he predicably hated (though in this case the hatred was justified).
  • His ascension brought about the potential for revenge from one particular person: The Comic Book Guy. The last time the two met, he stopped the nerd from trashing the comic book store he was at. The geek knew just how to piss him off: by claiming that the movie was the greatest comic book movie of all time. Not willing to take that slight standing, Alan Moore demanded to take this up to a debate. In the resulting debate, the Comic Book Guy unleashed a surprisingly good amount of lore to keep the writer on his toes. Ultimately, the audience was convinced that the book was the better product. The Comic Book Guy tried to attack him again... only to get his ass kicked a second time. The two are now under a gag order to keep the two apart.
  • For the last time, just because he looks like Rasputin doesn't mean he's the later in reincarnated form. How could be be if he isn't nearly as evil as his counterparts. That hasn't stopped the likes of the Question from keeping an eye on him.
  • The two may work at different genres, but GRRM shares his sentiment in regards to other people using his characters in fanfiction. This is especially true since people tend to try and revive the characters he killed off.

  • Visual Novels are usually stories "written" in the form of literature, but with a combination of still pictures and a few video game elements, as well as a Choose Your Own Adventure style, which gives way to multiple endings. And then are are these types; Kinetic Novels, which have zero interactivity, and is basically a short story with accompanied by visuals and audio. While not the first, the story of True Remembrance is among them (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Kikokugai: The Cyber Slayer precede them, but one of them already has its main characters ascended under varying tropes, while the other is an eroge, and there's a strange taboo here in regards to them; Mara's presence is already pushing the limit). Unlike Linear Visual Novels, which give an illusion of multiple endings, Kinetic Novels don't bother with that, not that that makes them portentially less enjoyable than regular visual novels. This duo, known only as Blackiris and La, come from such a Kinetic Novel.
    • Before they were ascended to the Pantheon, the two have been wandering the outside world after escaping the town that used to be their ward. That was how they were found and how they easily accepted the offer of ascension from the Court of the Gods.
  • Applies to both:
    • The world they come from is plagued by a psychological epidemic called the Dolor, which seems to inflict Psyche Corrosion, which basically drived people so deep in sadness and helplessnes that they become suicidal. The town they came from is a government-sanctioned establishment that is basically a huge psychiatric ward. Blackiris is a Mnemonicide and Guide and La was his Guest, which is another term for "patient" except she's a Mnemonicide, too, and the roles were actually reversed. Mnemonicides are people who help Guests suffering from Dolor by erasing their memories that lead to Psyche Corrosion by first seeing them, essentially transferring them into themselves, though La can do it the standard way. Additionally, a Mnemonicide's powers, barring Class Omegas, evnetually fade…when they have been "filled to capacity" or otherwise burn out. Of course, this isn't a problem in the Pantheon.
      • Don't bother asking too many questions on things about their world. Their isolation from the rest of it means several of them will remain unanswered.
      • Their world drew the attention of SCP-049. Although the Dolor's not a physical disease, more of a mental one, the Plague Doctor holds interest in curing it, though his methods mean they stay away from him whenever they can.
      • Dr. Dala also harbors interest in the disease as well, since her expertise extends to Medical Sciences. She always tries and investigates things about the disease, trying to figure out how to cure it as well. Even as the more "saner" members of the Think Tank, she's still not quite right in the head and can be a bit creepy when it comes to studying and asking questions from the duo.
      • Also, the reason why there was even an isolated town for Mnemonicides to do their work rather than them going out in the world to help people is because a Mnemonicide's powers—and their control over them—are incredibly unstable things, and they aren't even well-known to the world as a whole due to risk of a bloody uprising. Given their powers and its potential, they're pretty justified.
    • Blackiris's Mnemonicide abilities manifest by looking into the subject's eyes, though the one time he claimed that, he didn't actually use them, though he probably did use them in another instance on a hostage-taker who had La. As for La, it comes through her voice when she sings, as Blackiris can attest to. Given there are better (and more efficient) amnesiac methods in the Pantheon, however, better than Blackiris's, at least, such as Brain Bleach and the Men in Black's neuralyzers, the two are content with living what amounts to normal life in the Pantheon and will not be taking in Guests. Either of them. And La makes sure to assauge any worries that Blackiris might use his powers on a whim on anyone who looks at him the wrong way.
      • If however for whatever reason someone insists, they will do so and accommodate their Guest until the Brain Bleach is delivered or better amnesiac-inducers arrive, but Blackiris is not allowing them any housework or cleaning up; that's supposed to be his job, and La prefers to do it anyway.
      • That said, Simon Henriksson somehow managed to become their Guest after La got acquainted with him through Sayori. And after some pleading, Blackiris decided to indulge in his partner's wishes, given Simon suffered from depression and his situation worsened during his game, causing him to have a psychosis.
    • As residents of a world rife with a despair-causing epidemic, neither like those who wish to further propagate it. And top of that list are Monokuma and Junko Enoshima.
  • Exclusive to Blackiris:
    • Blackiris doesn't mind if anybody wishes to call him by any other name and would point that out, but people normally just call him Blackiris because it's easier.
    • For pastimes, Blackiris plays Go, though while he's certainly a competent, the only points of reference are La (who loses all too often) and his unascended friend Rook (who wins around one game every five they play).
    • Blackiris has experience with using guns, and is perfectly willing to use them if need be.
    • Having used to working in a polluted city and its factories before running away, Blackiris doesn't like those who wish to perpetuate that lifestyle. He's also had to scrape by before he was recruited for his Mnemonicidal abilities, which he signed up on with right then.
  • Exclusive to La:
    • Very few know this, but La's hair used to be completely black. It turned white after she absorbed the memories of Analye, her previous caretaker, upon his death.
    • Prior to her adoption by Analye, La used to live in her parents' basement, not out of malice, but because they didn't know what to do with her (likely due to her Mnemonicide powers). As such, she sympathizes with those who have had worse living conditions, such as Harry Potter before Hogwarts came to his life.
    • The two take coffee every morning, which La makes, though she never drinks hers, always taking milk. Still, she hopes to make better stuff and visits Godot to learn more on the art.
    • Having dealt with depression before, Sayori of the (Doki Doki) Literature Club visits them on occasion, mostly to hang out with La, and has even invited her to join the club. Blackiris always tags along whenever she does, mostly in concern regarding Monika and the things she's done.
    • Taking La as a hostage is a bad idea, and she would let herself be taken if it would prevent others from bcoming hostages as well. Not only would Blackiris come running, so would the friends she's made, not counting those who would respond to a hostage situation anyway. And that's if she doesn't decide/get to use her Mnemonicide powers first.

    Francis (Felidae
Francis, God of Mature Animal Stories (Clever Shit, Smart-ass)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/francis_9.png
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His prominent green eyes
  • Theme Song: Felidae
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: REALLY smart for a cat, a black cat who is the hero, beware the nice cat, a very snarky narrator, kitty amateur detective
  • Domains: Cats, Adult Fiction, Mysteries, Detectives
  • Herald: Bluebeard, Sancta
  • High Priest: Fritz
  • Allies: Bluestar, Bastet, Sakaki
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Salem
  • Respected by: Humphrey Bogart
  • Odd Friendship: Basil and Dawson
  • Francis is a domestic cat who moves around a lot with his pulp writer owner. After just recently moving into a new neighborhood, Francis found a cat murdered in a gruesome manner. Francis decided to investigate as other cats killed in a similar way kept appearing, dealing with common thugs and a cult along the way. He successfully traced the origin of the murders to Claudandus, a cat supremacist mad with ambition to create a new breed of cats and overthrow humanity, and killed him before the evil cat could do more damage. Francis would go on to solve other crimes that weren't exactly for the faint-of-heart.
  • For a while, it was a matter of debate as to whether Francis or Fritz the Cat should ascend as the god of adult-oriented, animal-centered storytelling. In the end, Francis won out over Fritz due to behaving more like an animal than the latter. Despite this, however, Fritz wasn't left entirely in the dark, as he would eventually become Francis' High Priest.
    • Occasionally, though, Fritz still expresses bitterness over the whole situation. There are times where he insists that the title should have gone to him, and that Francis should have been his High Priest instead.
  • Bastet, excited to see another feline ascend, welcomed Francis to the Pantheon with open arms. Francis' former owner, Gus, studied in archaeology and specialized in ancient Egyptian gods, so he was very interested in meeting her. They've definitely kept in touch with each other since their first meeting, and Bastet has admitted her disappointment that Francis couldn't be a member of the House of Felines. As far as she's concerned, though, Francis is an honorary member.
  • Perhaps Francis' closest friend in the Pantheon is Bluestar. Though he's never stated it, many deities think it's obvious that Bluestar reminds Francis of his deceased friend, Felicity, and that had a major part in how close they've become. Sometimes Francis wonders what his Warrior name would be. Firestar, Bluestar's successor, thinks Sharpeye would be a good one, to reflect his intelligence.
  • While working on solving a case, Francis tends to have dreams containing clues to the truth he's seeking. He has never understood why this happens, but after meeting Bluestar and some more warrior cats who were happy to tell him about their customs, Francis is starting to think that the warriors ancestors StarClan, who tend to send prophecies and warnings in the form of dreams, are watching over him too.
  • Sakaki, being the cat lover that she is, can very often be seen feeding Francis or petting him. Francis, of course, very much enjoys this treatment, and doesn't get why other cats would attack such a kind girl.
  • Even though Francis has promised on many occasions that he would not harm them, many rodent deities of the Pantheon are still wary of him. This is because Francis, being a cat, has hunted and killed many rats and mice prior to his ascension. Despite this, Francis has still managed to become fairly good friends with Basil and Dawson, seeing as they are both animals who solve mysteries.
  • Francis and Salem claim to be allies, but you'd never guess by how often they snark, bicker, and hurl flowery insults at each other. Francis isn't exactly sure how he feels about the fact that Salem was once a warlock who tried to take over the world 500 years ago.
    • Francis isn't sure what to think of Garfield and Big either. To a cat like him, there's just something unsettling about cats who stand on two legs and can talk to humans. Big especially is intimidating to Francis, given how big he is.
  • Humphrey Bogart very much respects Francis, seeing as his source material is often summarized as a film noir with cats. Much like Sakaki, Bogart is often seen feeding Francis or petting him. It certainly helps that the both of them share a House, too.

  • Opposed by: Any Deity of Russian descent, any member of law enforcement, those who don't kill
  • Sympathizes with: Suffering war veterans, Bloody Marie, anyone who got in trouble with the mafia
  • Ascended after the events that transpired in Miami, and for someone with a reputation like his, it was surprisingly discreet: He went through the entrance for his ascension and went straight to his temple, Richard Mask in hand. While some deities went about their business, others stayed the hell away after hearing some of his gruesome exploits. The Masked Maniac, nicknamed Jacket has come to the Pantheon.
  • Regarding what exactly happened to Jacket in the heat of 1989 Miami... well, it's a long story. A long, weird story. To start, Jacket was an agent of 50 Blessings, a nationalist group dedicated to destroying the Russian Mafiya and undermining the Russo-American Coalition. Jacket was one of their top hitmen, a cold-blooded killer who would not stop 'till a job was done. His life started to go off the rails when a fellow agent, known only as the Biker due to his choice in headwear, started trying to get out of the business, and Jacket was sent to take care of him. To hear Jacket tell it, the Biker massacred every employee at the PhoneHom phone company, then attacked Jacket, forcing him to kill the Biker in self-defense. But that's not what happened. The Biker gave Jacket a chance to leave, then when Jacket wouldn't back down, beat him to within an inch of his life. 50 Blessings was not happy when they heard of Jacket's failure, and sent a rat-masked assassin named Richter to kill him. Jacket came home to find his girlfriend's corpse in the living room and Richter waiting for him with a silenced Uzi. Fortunately for him, Jacket survived the shooting, and hallucinated the events of the last couple of months while in a coma, hallucinating his victory at the phone company and seeing his old friend at various stores. When he woke up, he immediately headed out to the police station to get some information on just what the hell had happened to him. Jacket traced the mysterious calls, as well as Richter's hit, to a Russian mob boss named Ivan Lebedev. Obviously, Lebedev didn't live long. Jacket went peacefully to prison for killing Lebedev and his son, thinking everything was solved...
    • Unfortunately, he was wrong. Turns out 50 Blessings had been playing him the whole time. They had sent him on a wild goose chase against the Russians, getting rid of a dangerous wild card and crippling the Mafiya in one fell swoop. Jacket was simply a scapegoat, and when the Russians nuked Miami, he died without ever knowing otherwise.
  • His temple is his old apartment back from before he was hospitalized. It's not in the best condition, although he didn't have much to work with given the state he found it in. It's said that the apartment was a lot nicer at some point, back when Jacket saved a prostitute from a sickening film producer and brought her home to live with him, but it would be in your best interest to not touch upon the subject.
  • Naturally, he's quite infamous among any Russians within the Pantheon and is automatically enemies with any Russian mobster within the Pantheon due to crippling their influence after waking from his coma. He's also automatically enemies with any Soviets due to being a veteran in the war against them. He harbors a very negative view of Vladimir Makarov and Nikita Dragovich as a result, who only serve to justify his negative view on Russians in general.
    • Made enemies with Lionel Starkweather since he reminds Jacket of the aforementioned filmmaker, whose eyes he gouged out, and has no qualms doing it again to Lionel. It happened once with Cash and it can happen again and again thanks to the Pantheon's rules on death. Jacket was pleased when he heard about that. Lionel, on his part, feigned confidence, but he hasn't gone near Jacket's temple since the killer made enemies with him...
  • The PAYDAY Crew are pleased with his ascension due to his assistance with their schemes. Some deities question whether or not the Jacket that aids them is the real deal given his attitude change after the killing sprees in Miami and that he's quite young looking for someone in their 40s to 50s. There's speculation going around says that Jacket is actually a Loony Fan taking up his visage, which isn't too crazy of a theory after what happened in 1991. Regardless, it would be heavily advised to never cross him as he's much more insane and is considerably more competent in killing. Just look what happened to this poor cloaker. Luckily, it's easy to notice the change in attitude as he communicates through a tape recorder with an absurd amount of fitting sound bytes. One wonders how he answers the pager without sounding the least bit suspicious.
    • Outside his work with them and his conflicts with general scumbags and Russian Mobsters, Jacket lives his life like anyone else would. He's seen in the House of Food or Theater after a long day to get some food, take a drink, or rent some videos. Since he no longer hallucinates the people he meets as Beard, he has little reason to stick around for long, often going straight home. Then again, he wasn't a talkative guy to begin with.
  • Respects Marv for avenging Goldie's death and for taking down Kevin and Cardinal Roark. It's not surprising to find the two hunting down the lowlifes that dwell in the Pantheon. When Jacket told him about his experiences in Miami, the latter promised to take down the Miami Mafiya for what they did should they come around to the Pantheon. Shame they've both got the wrong guys.
  • Understandably is opposed by many deities affiliated with law enforcement in the Pantheon for his slaughter of police officers after awaking from his coma, especially if he's with the PAYDAY Crew. On his regular days, he doesn't openly go after them unless they tick him off to the point of acting. Naturally, he also isn't liked that much by the House of Justice or any heroic figure who are opposed to killing.
  • Sympathizes with Niko Bellic due to his background as a war veteran and troubles with the Mafiya, something that mirrors his own experiences back in Hawaii and Miami. Jacket actually respects that he had long abandoned his criminal career since he himself doesn't actually enjoy violence that much despite being surrounded by it. This sympathy extends to others who suffered similar experiences.
    • His relationship with Marie, however, is shaky. Although she is ruthless in her hunt for mafia, she does not involve anyone outside of that and is quite iffy on his brutality on some of his victims, mainly the aforementioned sadistic producer, which mirrors her best friend's mutilation. Jacket did convey to her that his slaughter of police officers was because he REALLY needed to hunt down Richter for killing the girl he rescued despite sparing him in the end. It's uneasy, but Jacket does admire her reasons for becoming the Skullgirl, since it's no different for his conviction to pay back and avenge the soldier from the war.
  • "So this is what the end looks like... beautiful."

    Joel and Ellie 
Joel and Ellie, Co-deities of Backstories Repeating Themselves
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/joel_ellie.jpg
  • Demigods
  • Symbol: A handgun crossed with a switchblade
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolios: Action Survivor, Handguns, Hates Being Alone, Huge Guy, Tiny Girl, are leads in The Last of Us
  • Domains: Survival, Community, Freedom, Protection

  • Abhorrent Admirers: The GUAD, Gul'dan
  • Annoys: Gwen Tennyson
  • Pities: Pippi Longstocking
  • There are many stories about surviving a zombie apocalypse, but there was one that intrigued the Triumvirate of Survival Horror more than most. It's the story of a man who was tasked to protect a young teen for months. The two eventually bonded, a friendship that transcended even his superiors. It is that and the striking similarities with a similar plight with his biological daughter many years ago that convinced them to bring the two to the Pantheon.
  • To Joel and Ellie's surprise, they managed to stay friends with many other zombie survivor deities. Those people of all gods know the importance of companionship. It might be the only thing that can keep you going.
    • The biggest advocates have been the House of Friendship. Joel and Ellie frequent there often, but there's one place they visit most. In their first visit to the temple of the Super Best Friends, Ellie greeted Pat with a jab at the ribs followed by a greeting: "Hey Trash. How's it going?" It turned out to be a friendly jest, as the group later supported Joel's decision to let her live.
    • They didn't like everyone in that house. Joel was disgusted with how Felix treated his teammates, while Ellie feared what would happen if Joel decided to follow his teachings instead.
  • Joel's decision in the end to save his surrogate daughter over sacrificing her for a cure sparked a massive debate throughout the Pantheon. Some agreed with his decision, while others called him selfish for doing such a thing. The loudest voice of opposition came from the GUAL, with YHVH vowing to rewrite his brain in order to make the more logical decision.
    • Although neither god has such a strong opinion on the matter, Spock and McCoy split their opinions the usual way, with McCoy praising Joel's decision and Spock shaking his head in disappointment.
    • The most unlikeliest of supporters came from one of their most hated factions: the GUAD. Keeping Ellie alive keeps their world in a dystopic future for the time being. However long it takes for Ellie to be no longer a factor doesn't matter to them... just as long as a cure is never found.
  • When Otacon found out the title that these two took, he made his way to their temple to voice his complaints. Among them was the face that many of his loved ones have died in similar ways. The two gave him their condolences, hoping to give him better luck in the future.
  • Few things has phased Joel through his adventures... except the time when they encountered cannibals. He would be shocked again when he found out they had a god on their side. Neither have set foot in the House of Slaughter as a result, but they couldn't help but notice that Hannibal Lecter has been stalking the two as of late.
  • Crazy Dave may hunt down zombies like them. It doesn't prevent Ellie from feeling nervous around him, given he has the same name as one particular man she had a harrowing encounter with.
  • Joel can't help but take pity of Pippi Longstocking. Even though she firmly believes her father will return, he's silently prepping for the worst. Ellie on the other hand has been enjoying her company, joining her on her wacky adventures.
  • One reason to think Pippi may be right? E.T. the extraterrestrial successfully found his parents and went back home. Neither would admit it, but many gods suspected they were moved with the story. Thinking more optimistically may not be such a bad thing after all.
  • Has been seen recently with fellow zombie survivor Rick Grimes. Both characters have been through hell and back and have beards to show for it. Rick likens Joel's relationship to Ellis to his own for his mortal son Carl.
  • The Joker was none to pleased to find another with the same voice. The clown is notorious for offing characters with similar shticks. Booker on the other hand was more friendly towards the man, despite their games becoming rivals for the year. Gul'dan is merely amused with his decision to doom his homeworld. Joel was quick to denounce him afterwards.
  • Made quick friends with most within the House of Children, but formed the closest bond with bratty half pints Bart and Dennis. It's likely due to the fact that that she used to be one herself. She gained a lot of Character Development since then, but that doesn't stop her from having fun with them.
  • When she found out there was a God of Karma, she was quick to seek out Earl Hickey to ask him a simple question; was he the reason many of her friends end up dying? Earl couldn't give her a definitive answer to that question, but promises to look into the matter.
  • Ellie was pleased to find so many dog deities in the Pantheon. She made sure to visit every temple to meet with them, from the loyal Hachiko to the giant Clifford to the just plain unusual Jake.
    • When she met Beast Boy, the animorphic was hesitant to meet her. When she backed away, he apologised, explaining that her voice reminded him on his ex-girlfriend Terra.
  • Many gods were surprised at just how often Ellie resorts to swear wears. Ellie even admitted she would have followed the likes of Tiny Tina and Tony Montana if she knew they existed. Though he hesitates to meet up with the gangster, she goes along just nicely with Tiny Tina, hoping to learn more accents.
  • T.J. Detwiler couldn't help but notice how her voice was similar to Gretchen Grundler. The two naturally got along well after that. Gwen Tennyson thought she could have a similar bond with the girl... until she found out that Ellie had more in common with her annoying cousin.

  • Sometime after the Great Flood cleansed his world, and after he finally shed his mortal coil, Noah found himself in an unexpected "afterlife"; the Trope Pantheons.

In his case, two of every animal on Earth from the flood. In respect to his religion, he's addressed as a High Prophet.
    • Of course, there came some contention given that he was initially unwilling to let his family reproduce so that humanity can go extinct. However, it's been countered with the fact that he was still saving a population (the land animals) from the Flood; humanity just wasn't on the list before he changed his mind.
  • Noah heard of how many have seemed to "follow" his lead, like Bulma having one just in case of planetary destruction (which is more justified than it sounds given how many times it's been wrecked), the Arc-Gurren by Rossiu, how Donald Duck was somehow in the middle of one such event, how Arceus in one alternate timeline evacuated his kind and a few humans to an Equestria, how James Bond thwarted a villain who planned to commit global genocide and repopulate the planet with his perfect people afterward, and so on.
  • For reasons he can't understand, he's found at least threee people who Robin Hood, Maximus, and Jor-El. He's closer to the last, given he tried to do the same thing, but Krypton's ways were too set that he could only send his child Kal-El.
  • Is a staunch vegetarian through and through (perhaps even a vegan), and refuses any and all forms of meat. The fact that one of his sons happens to be named after a meat product is a coincidence; ham as a food item wasn't a thing in his time.
  • Just like Moses, after hearing about His numerous atrocities all for the sake of being worshipped for eternity, Noah doesn't believe YHVH is his God, even when His Angels tried to sway him to His side. Eternal subjugation is just another way of saying slavery, one of many of humanity's evils.
  • Ned Flanders is disappointed in Noah for some reason given he's more on the fundamentalist "Biblical patriarchs are super good" side, and seeing this "evil" side of him soured his opinions.
  • Has no real opinion on the other pagan deities in the Pantheon, given none existed in his time.

After a long time served as Bulk and Skull high priests, the Pantheon discovered the sequel that starred the two of them and the two are granted their own temple thanks to the popularity of said sequel.
  • The two of them turned on Hamlet because of his action that killed them and many more people that don't have anything to do with his father's murder.
    • On the other hand, they feel sorry for Ophelia because of the way Hamlet treats her and sometimes can be seen helping her running her temple. Of course, they don't brought up the time they tried to kill Hamlet to marry her.
  • Meet and get along well with Timon and Pumbaa given that they are the two's equivalent in their work. Especially given that the two animals have a sequel that follows their temple's power.
    • From Timon and Pumbaa, the two discover a great ally in Simba, who is a Lighter and Softer version of Hamlet and has been in contact with the lion ever since, even sometimes go to his father Mufasa's (who is pleased that his son has made new friends) temple in remembrance.
    • Of course, being allies with Simba means that they hate Scar with a passion for his resemblance to Claudius.
  • Being in a meta-fiction sequel with the power to Breaking the Fourth Wall, Deadpool decided to pay them a visit. While the two sides come to sympathize with others' situation, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, like most people, are annoyed with Deadpool.
  • Caesar tries to avoid their temple as much as he can due to the fact that both of them looks like two of his or his counterpart's enemies.
  • Guildenstern sometimes share a laugh with the Doctor because of how similar he sounds like the Doctor when the latter is on Robot Chicken.
  • Rosencrantz has provoked... interesting reaction from the ascended cast of Harry Potter when they found out that he looks like one of the more prolific figure of the wizarding world Sirius Black.
    • He is on good grace with Batman because of how similar he looks to Commissioner Gordon and the Bat can sometime be seen around his temple trying to get a break from the vigilante business.
    • On the other hand, hates the fact that he looks like a version of Dracula and that sometimes cost him to be chased by vampire hunters. He also earns angry looks from Mathilda and Leon for resembling the cop who killed her family.

Her Magi counterpart 
As a Servant 
  • Theme Song: "Scheherazade"

  • Enemies: Any evil monarches, especially those beheading their citizens, The Evil Queen, Jafar, every evil Disney deity
  • Opposes: Any evil genies
  • Opposed by: The good deities in the House of Love
  • Followers: Tamiyo
  • She currently spends most of her time in the House of Narrative as a storyteller to anyone willing to take a second and stop by to listen to her stories. Some of them are even in talk of being adapted by the House of Theater.
    • Although some of them wondered why is she still telling stories, given that there is no threat to her life in the Pantheon (or at least threats that can be "solved" by telling stories). Scheherazade just replies that as she has learned from one of her friends, Bigby Wolf, that "everyone likes a good story".
    • She has also inspired her follower Tamiyo to start a storytelling circle in her own universe — where the soratami is more successful.
    • Shortly after Agartha, when she restarted her storytelling circle, some of her listeners commented that she sounded familiar. Is she 17 years old? ... In a way (17 years old + the amount of days from that day she reached that age.) (Oi, oi!)
  • She was originally just considered for the position of her first two temples, but a lot of other people pointed out that her story is perhaps the earliest instances Arabia is portrayed in all of its glory as well as the fact that in an alternative timeline, she is literally the person that grants prosperity for her kingdom due to her magical powers. Thus, Scheherazade was also given her 3rd title.
  • Her ascension caused many Arabic deities to become very excited, because many of them are based on characters from the stories she told. Although at first she was confused about the situation, Scheherazade accepted and was flattered by the admiration.
    • From one of the versions of Aladdin, Scheherazade learned that one of her counterpart is also a Magi like him. However, she was horrified when learning that version of her ended up as a ruthless woman who believed in My Country, Right or Wrong and ignored the plight of other people. Scheherazade vows with Aladdin to never become that type of ruler.
    • The other Aladdin, Jasmine, and Genie was excited to see her ascended. This is especially true for Genie, who is fascinated to meet one of the most influential storytellers in literature history, not to mention someone with as much power as him. Scheherazade was confused since he doesn't act like the genies that she is familiar with.
    • However, Jafar saw her as a chance to take more power as he can now force her to tell a new story where he emerges victorious. This has led to her temple to be under constant watch of the good Disney deities and a prime target for the bad ones.
  • Found a surprising ally with Bigby Wolf given the fact that in his world, Bigby's wife Snow White is the one that inspired her to the gambit that helped her stay alive. Because of this friendship, she is protective of Fables!Snow White, as well as Scheherazade found that she was also mistreated by royalty.
  • The good deities of the House of Love are very critical of her as they can't understand why Scheherazade would marry someone who married and beheaded every virgins in his country after his first night with them. Scheherazade acknowledged that her story is written in a much more different time period and usually appears with a version of her husband that is much more sympathetic when she visits the house.
  • Was somewhat sad when she heard that her temple has more Western followers than Arabic ones. However, she is still grateful that her story still inspired some followers rather than falling to obscurity.

  • Feared by: The Villager, The Pikmin
  • Enemies: Eachother, Shinmyoumaru Sukuna, Durant, Master Viper and Master Mantis, Remy the Rat, Ratigan
  • A odd pair of gods, the two of them are just a regular scorpion and a tarantula. A scorpion and a tarantula who are rather bloodthirsty, as they will try to kill any creature of their size they come across, but still. And yet against all odds, they are main characters to a video game.
  • Their "temple" are more like small shrines than real temples. The shrine is also empty most of the time, as two of them are more concern on hunting food. Doesn't help that they are hostile forwards eachother.
  • Some gods believe that the Scorpion is reincarnation of either Hanzo Hasashi/Scorpion or Kratos. And honestly, no one can't really blame them.
    • On a similar note, some believe that Tarantula is the reincarnation of Spider-Man.
  • One time Ashley Williams tried to use his shotgun to get rid of the Scorpion. Not only did he survive a shotgun blast, he then proceed to stab Ash where it hurts.
  • The Scorpion has bit of a connection with Crixalis and Drapion. Mainly because he doesn't have intent to attack anything way larger than himself.
  • The Tarantula is sort of allies with Arachne, but due of how competitive she can be, she ends up trying to eat most of her other children. On other hand, she seems to grown custom to Ato-ko, even if she admits she is more of a black widow than a tarantula.
  • Probably the only deities what can make the Villager actually scared, being specimens of one of few hostile creatures from their world. Where they have captured the two before, they have had to let them go.
  • The two of them are rather common treat to the Pikmin, even if the two of them are carnivores. While the two of them have problems with some of the Pikmin, they do serve as a big treat to them. This also extends to Sukuna.
    • However, even they think that Durant are too tough for them to handle, even if they are on the similar size class. As such, all of them will make a truce when it comes to Durant.
  • The two of them have fought against Master Viper and Master Mantis in the past, as neither of them like snakes and mantises (especially Tarantula with snakes). Even though the two of them are qualified as "Quasideities", the two arachnids have managed to keep the two kung-fu masters in the ropes.
  • Aside of insects, other arachnids and small lizards, they also commonly attack rats, which makes them at odds with Remy and Ratigan.

  • Shizuku Tsukishima arrived in the Pantheon after a copy of her novel Whisper Of The Heart was discovered in the Infinite Library by Yomiko Readman. After giving it a read and doing some research, she decided to bring the young author up for an interview. During the interview, she discovered that Shizuku wrote the novel at the expense of her grades, whilst isolating herself and getting into arguments with her family. The young writer admitted that it was a bad time but she has since learned from her mistakes. With that, Yomiko decided she was good enough for the Pantheon... on the condition she study at the Elysium Academy.
  • She is fascinated by the other Ghibli deities and their stories, going so far as to draw inspiration for her own work. The others don't seem to mind, and have become friends with Shizuku as a result. The only exception are the Tanukis of Tama Hill, who are wary of the young writer due to her home being build on top of their home.
  • Following her ascension, Shizuku discovered that a variety of high-profile authors were also present in the Pantheon, all with their unique styles and techniques, which made the young writer incredibly excited. More often than not she's seen getting lessons from either J.K. Rowling or Sir Terry Pratchett, both of whom specialists in the fantasy genre. She's also fascinated by the techniques implemented by the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Charles Dickens. Basically, The Pantheon is everything Shizuku could ask for.
  • Gets along well with Harriet Welsch, both being aspiring writers and writing down their ideas into notebooks. However, Harriet is still vary secretive about the contents in her journal, which makes Shizuku suspicious. But both have pitched in to help another writer, Barton Fink, overcome his writer's block by presenting him with prompts and suggestions to improve on his story.
  • Will often go to the House of Theatre to watch the works of William Shakespeare. After stopping by for a few shows, the Bard of Avon took notice, and offered Shizuku the chance to play a small role in the House's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. It was basically how she met Jack and Annie, who were friends of Shakespeare. The pair have welcomed her to the Magic Treehouse, allowing Shizuku to travel to the worlds of her books. Some claim that the young girl shed tears of joy after her first journey.
  • It was through Jack and Annie that Shizuku befriended Belle and the Beast, who often lend out books for her to read and study during her down time. Belle was happy to meet another writer in the Pantheon, but was also quick to scold Shizuku about letting her work get to her head. After things were cleared up, the Princess of Heart offered to help with the Academy's study, effectively becoming Shizuku's aide. The girl doesn't seem to mind; Belle is often the first person she goes to for help... or to tell Gaston to piss off.
    • Thanks to Belle, Shizuku became friends with two other Disney Princesses; Rapunzel and Anna, both of whom have incredible imaginations and were excited to read Whisper of the Heart when they found it.
      • While not a Disney Princess, Milo Thatch has shared some of his research of Atlantis with the young writer, further fuelling her creative mind and expanding her horizons.
  • When it comes to cats, Shizuku gets along with pretty much all of them. Whether it be the small felines like Garfield, Firestar or Sylvester, or the big cats like Simba and Bagheera, she likes them all, mostly due to cats playing a big role in her original story. In fact that's how she met Sakaki That said, she has trouble getting along with Salem, due to his sarcastic nature and criticisms of her work.
    • Scar, on the other hand, once tried to attack her, making him one of the only felines in the Pantheon the young writer opposes.
  • Back in her school days Shizuku wrote a cover of “Country Roads” entitled “Concrete Roads”. She has been hesitant to share it, out of fear someone will make fun of the lyrics… at least until the Trollkaiger found the song and sang it aloud for all the Pantheon to hear. To say Shizuku was furious would be an Understatement. She was later seen storming through the streets muttering to herself.
    Shizuku: Stupid jerks! Stupid jerks! Stupid jerks!
  • Gets along with both Anne Shirley and Amelie Poulain, with all three sharing their own stories and expressing how they see the world. From time to time, Shizuku will write short pieces based upon what she's heard and gives them back as gifts.
  • Has been seen in the Infinite Library taking out books for reading, often borrowing them to read in her own temple. She's made sure to return everything on time, and with good reason; Yomiko's Pokémon partner Kartana doesn't tolerate late returns.
  • Shizuku has very few enemies, but there are two in the Pantheon who she cannot stand. The first, Herr D.D. Drosselmeyer, she greatly distrusts, due to him being an evil author who barely considered the feelings of his characters (not to mention rewriting reality). The other god she stays away from is Mr. Scratch, who once tried luring her away from her temple. Luckily, Alan Wake warned Shizuku about his evil doppelgänger, so she ran the other way and didn't look back.
  • While she gets along and idolizes the Pantheon's many authors and writers, George R.R. Martin legitimately terrifies her, due to the sheer brutality he has for his characters. She also is wary of Annie Wilkes, due to being an absolutely unhinged, Axe-Crazy and overall deranged fan. Can't say the same for Wilikes's creator Stephen King; Shizuku respects him.
  • She's offered to help Jiminy Cricket keep his journal updated with every new arrival in the Pantheon. The small chronicler appreciated the offer but he's got things taken care of. That said, he has stopped by her temple every so often to make sure she hasn't been straying from her studies.
  • Shizuku was surprised to discover that her story was later refined and remade into a new novel, entitled The Cat Returns. While the changes to the story were unexpected, she was still pleased with the final product and was glad to see the Baron still in the film.
