The Swords Sub-House

Due to the fact that a large portion of deities in the Bladed Weapons sub-house wield swords, it was decided that a sub-house specifically for them be created. Just like the house they came from, this place is known to be littered with slash marks, and the occasional blade embedded in the walls, floor, or even ceiling.

Fighter McWarrior loves this place for obvious reasons, though his obsession with gluing swords ad nunchucks together has given him a bad reputation here.

Greater Gods

    Jack Rakan 
Jack Rakan, God of Swordsmanship ("Rakan of the Thousand Blades" "The Ultimate Swordsman" "The Ultimate Mercenary" "The Ultimate Hard Worker" "The Man Who Cannot Die" "The Immortal Fool" "That Damn Guy Who You Can Stab With Swords All You Like And It Won't Do A Damn Thing, Damn it")
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_raken_5887.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: One Thousand Swords (His Artifact is "The Hero of a Thousand Faces")
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (Although he tends to veer into Chaotic Stupid at times)
  • Portfoilio: doing things that should be impossible, BFS, Blood Sport, Boisterous Bruiser, Field of Blades, Game-Breaker, Genius Bruiser, Lightning Bruiser, Obfuscating Stupidity, Obi-Wan Moment(x2), Person of Mass Destruction, Psychic Powers (Mind Reader), Rule of Cool, Trickster Mentor.
  • Domain: Destruction, Glory, War.
  • Allies: Negi Springfield (Student), Evangeline (old friend), Asuna Kagurazaka (????), Augus, Kamina, Issei Hyodo
  • Enemies: Few live long enough to earn this title, although his blase attitude towards most evil and fun personality don't hurt. Evangeline, while they are old friends... she has a tendency to make serious attempts on his life because he annoyed her. He takes the attacks in good spirits though.
  • Both a former Gladiator and War Veteran, Jack Rakan has participated in countless battles that have forged both strength and skill over a period of forty years. Rakan is an exceptional battle analyst as demonstrated when he analyzed Negi's Raiten Taisou and pinpointed it's weaknesses only after observing it once. Despite this fact, everyone in the pantheon still thinks he's an idiot.
  • Joined the Pantheon because he damn well felt like it, and no one has the balls to tell him to leave (and those who do don't really care anyway). Has a friendly rivalry with Cloud, the original god of BFSs, who's really more confused than anything concerning the situation.
  • Augus from the combat house interests him, and even he finds Augus's sword to be amazing despite the size of his own swords. Augus possibly finds Jack worthy of his own blade. The pantheon fears the day they fight all out with each other.
  • So far, he is the only one who has ever called Evangeline by the nickname Loli Grandma and get away with it.
  • Does get along well with Kamina on several occasions, since they have quite similar portfolios.
  • He also gets along quite well with Issei: Jack's taken him as his latest protégé following his kinship with Negi, but some have saw the two of them together doing a few perverted pranks to the Pantheon's other goddesses. Issei does think, however, that Jack's voice reminds him of another good friend of his, Azazel.
  • Upon Setsuna Sakurazaki's ascension, he promptly asked her if she still wants to learn the Zanmaken: Ni no Tachi from him. But since he added "In-Celebration-Of-My-First-Kiss-With-Ojou-Sama-Special" to its name (presumably so that she wouldn't worry too much as to difficulty of the technique), she has yet to take up the offer.

    Miyamoto Musashi 
Miyamoto Musashi, Grandmaster of the Swords (Shinmen Takezo, Kensei, Sword Saint, The Number 1 Swordsman In The World, Miyamoto Bennosuke, Niten Dōraku, Shinmen Mushashi no Kami Fujiwara no Genshin, Saber, Berserker)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sw4musashi_906.jpg
Saber incarnation 
Summer Berserker incarnation 
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Two bokken made out of wooden oars, crossed together.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Sword Fight, Wandering Swordsmen, Dual Wielding, Pragmatism In Combat, Crazy Hair, Samurai Ponytail, Walking the Earth, Cockiness, Arrogance, Compassion, Bokken Of Death
  • Domain: Swords, Combat, War
  • Allies: Cloud Strife, Jack Rakan, Samuel Rodrigues, Roronoa Zoro, Sanada Yukimura, Haohmaru, Liu Bei, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Arturia Pendragon, Ryu, Gracia.
  • Enemies: Oda Nobunaga.
  • Musashi, a most celebrated swordsman during his life in Earth and codified in history alike. He arrived in the Pantheon very late than scheduled, because apparently he was partying hard. Everyone that greeted him gave him a funny look, which prompted Musashi to say along the line, "Oh come ON, I didn't come late to take advantage of fatigue like I did with Kojirou!".
    • True to his nature, right after the establishment of his house, he pretty much challenged every other sword-based Gods he came across in a duel. Results so far has been unknown, but Musashi gave pretty hell of a fight.
    • One of his noteworthy opponents were Arturia Pendragon, who claimed that she has fought his former rival Kojirou, and wondered how he fared. The result's the same, but Musashi has certainly proved himself as the guy who beats Kojirou.
  • Many Gods like Sanada Yukimura were surprised that this Musashi is a lot calmer and compassionate, because as he recalled, the Musashi he knew of is a LOT more bratty and obnoxious. Musashi rolled his eyes on that statement, maybe that's how he was when he was a kid?
    • Said gods are also VERY surprised in that the Musashi before them actually is VERY skilled in combat and wields his swords with great-and-elegant form. Yukimura among others, is greatly impressed and is nearly given a run for his money (as well as his control over his Killing Intent).
    • Musashi himself however, is also surprised with how many changes the Pantheon had with people he used to know. On one hand, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the one he used to 'serve' (or just his son) ended up as a power-hungry tyrant, but Musashi can still respect his desire to make Japan a strong nation. Tokugawa Ieyasu became so friendly it surprised Musashi (then again, the other Ieyasu is just as friendly). Ultimately, Oda Nobunaga has became so demonic Musashi is now disgusted to him and swore to oppose him.
  • Takes massive pride in his Hyouhou Niten Ichi-Ryuu (Tactical Two Heavens As One-Style), a variation of the Enmei-Ryuu (Circling Bright-Style) of swordsmanship. As mentioned before, he codified dual-wielding; this was mainly through the "daishou" set of swords, as he uses a wakizashi and katana in solid and artful tandem despite their non-matching sizes.
  • Also noted that his house is apparently very stinky, because Musashi always refused to bathe (the historical Musashi may have may found it valid in keeping his guard up against any foe). Thankfully, his house is still more bearable than Pudge's, and there are times he airs it out a lot.
  • Legends has it that he once dual wielded not just a bokken and katana, but two magical swords known as Fusion and Lumina. They're swords of immense power, but no one has been able to confirm whether the swords were located in Musashi's house or not...
  • Known to have also made a wooden oar out of dangerous materials to make swords from it. Some Gods, like Nightmare, has even tried replacing their swords with wooden oars, but none was as deadly as how Musashi's oar-sword turned out to be.
    • That said "oar" is also part of his stronger set of swords; it's a strange hybrid between an eku-oar or suburitou, while his other sword is a jitte-styled blade in nod to his historical father Miyamoto Munesai, a renowned jitte master. The said wooden oar is also a nod to his historical bout with the aforementioned Kojirou, and Musashi makes it no secret in that he may have cheated on that fight like many others; his historical Book of Five Rings has the writings to prove it and Musashi is willing to own up to his pragmatic youth.
      • Compared to his more bratty alternate-self mentioned above, Musashi is glad his "oar-suburitou" hybrid is of a more reasonable size compared to his other-self's much-longer oar. That, and he's bore witness to his awkward technique....he gives him praise for unpredictability, but cannot stand his lack of form and discipline. Needless to say, Musashi is a bit disguised with his other self and is taken back to his questionable and ambiguous youth. Sadly, said youth also shares a voice with another infamous portrayal of his....
  • May be patiently waiting for the day his rival Kojirou will ascend to the pantheon, since Musashi's feeling lonely nowadays. He's also interested in how far his signature Tsubame Gaeshi has developed nowadays.
  • Feels somewhat odd towards both Haoumaru and Amidamaru, since they seem to be loosely based off of Musashi himself.
    • On the end of Amidamaru (with his signature Gokoujin/Halo Blade technique developed with Yoh), it's perhaps that "ring" motif of his via that aforementioned Book of Five Rings must be catching up to him. On the other hand, he also finds interest in Tachibana Ukyou, since he too has a variation of Kojirou's signature technique.

Intermediate Gods

    Artorias 
Artorias, God of Worn-Out Divine Swords (Knight Artorias, Sir Artorias the Abysswalker, Artorias of the Abyss, The Wolf Knight of Farron, R2orias)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-artorias_render_3612.png
  • Theme Song: Artorias the Abysswalker
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Three Greatswords of Artorias and Greatshield of Sif
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Chaotic Evil if The Abyss in him gets out of control)
  • Portfolio: Total loss of control, All three of his greatswords, Black Knight, he can channel the power of the Abyss to reinforce his attack power, Embodiment of the Abyss, Handicapped Badass Lightning Bruiser, Master Swordsman, Magic Knight
  • Domains: Knighthood, Honor, Darkness, Berserker, Rage, Heroism
  • Heralds: The Abyss Watchers
  • Allies: Gwyn, Great Grey Wolf Sif, The Maiden in Black, Ragna, Hakumen, Midna, Guts, Princess Luna, Arturia Pendragon, Lancelot, Riku, Siegfried, Maximillian Caxton, Ornstein and Smough, Ludwig the Accursed
  • Enemies: MANUS, Dragons, ALLANT, Master Xehanort, Yami, Nightmare, Chernabog, Nightmare Moon
  • Once found by Gwyn and The Maiden in Black in a completely unstable state, recklessly and relentlessly charging at them, howling and screaming like a maddened beast. Together, both were able to find a way to bring him back to a more stable level and return him to his senses. To their horror, though, they both realized the Abyss within him had ravaged his body to the point he can neither live without it or even remove his armor. Artorias' armor now serves less to protect whatever remains of the knight than as a restraint and prison for the monster within him.
  • Due to being almost entirely corrupted by the Abyss he can never return to his normal self and can lose himself to it if pushed too far. While his faith and powerful resolve can allow him a measure of calm, the dark presence within him shall never fade. This also affected his mighty Greatsword, as it has become severely worn out, with parts of the hilt missing and the blade covered in black slime. Like its wielder, it can be cleansed for brief periods before the Dark again corrupts it.
  • He is often working along side Guts any time he can. Both knights are very similar, and Artorias has pledged to help Guts defeat Griffith, who he sees as a perversion of the knight ideal.
  • Others are surprised that he can talk when earlier he was a little more then a roaring monster, though what Siegfried heard when he first regained speaking. They gained an understanding with each other knowing how it feels like to be in such a state and often work together.
  • He sympathizes with Princess Luna, knowing the effect Darkness can have on one's soul.
  • He often treats Arturia as well as Gwyn, his king, often commenting he'd like to be a knight for both.
  • He is slightly disheartened by that fact the only other Knight of Gwyn here is Ornstein. He dearly hopes Ciaran and Gough will join them someday; while he is indeed glad for Ornstein's company, he really can't stand Smough. Still, he has found many that would help him with his current "condition". Riku, for instance, is trying to show Artorias "the way to dawn".
    • He has recently, however, warmed up to Smough greatly after he heard about his heroic Last Stand against the forces of Aldritch, and his failed, yet valiant defense of Anor Londo. While he certainly, does not approve of his eating habits, he considers him more then worthy of the title of "Knight".
  • Harbors a deep hatred for Manus, Father of the Abyss, who corrupted him and is largely responsible for his current corruption and the Abyss within him, and Allant of Boletaria, who seeks to snuff out the First Flame and spearheads a plan to slay his lord. While at first he was content to hunt other creatures of darkness such as Yami and Chernobog, but Allant waking up Manus and ensuring its eventual release has steadily increased the risk of his wrath spiraling out of control, ironically upping the possibility of the Abyss taking control of him.
  • Those gods who have never heard Artorias' story are almost always brought to tears simply by hearing the tale. Those who hear of Sif and The Chosen Undead's tragic and inevitable duel years later are more often than not inconsolable.
  • It should be noted that Artorias is a lefty, and his right hand is his weaker arm. And he's STILL able to obliterate his opponents.
  • When the Bearer of the Curse returned from his travels to Brume Tower, Artorias found out that his sword had been passed down from one swordsman to another after his death and somehow ended up in the hands of the most recent bearer of his lord's soul, the Old Iron King. While proud it was still used in the fight against the Dark, he's a bit miffed at its current decrepit state.
    • He became a bit moody for a while when he learned that everyone who wielded his sword were also ironically left-handed, unlike his current state.
    • When he learned of the Fume Knight, Raime the Rebel, he was disgusted at how instead of fighting the dark, he embraced it. Artorias is now planning to take him on with Guts when he also discovered that Raime is the protector of one the ascended Children of the Dark, Nadalia.
  • Is unsure how to feel about the Fanatical soldiers known as "The Abyss Watchers", while he is flattered that so many would see him as inspiration he is unhappy with how overzealous they are to stop the Abyss. while many volunteered to protect his temple he has made sure they stayed far away from him as possible, not because of who they are but what the Abyss has done to them. He has convinced himself that it is his fault for their current state and wishes that they steer clear to try insure that they can be safe from the Abyss inside him.

    Hidemitsu Samanosuke Akechi 
Hidemitsu Samanosuke Akechi, God of Multi-Colored Blades (Samanosuke, Red Onimusha, Nankobou Tenkai)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/samanosuke_denderotto.png
Samanosuke in his Onimusha 3 attire 
  • Intermediate God (potentially Greater God if wielding the Gemma Samonji)
  • Theme Songs: His theme as Samanosuke, Tenkai's theme as Nankobo Tenkai
  • Symbol: The Oni Gauntlet with each fingers (except one) holding a katana, spear, axe, bow, all with differing colors.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Genma-slaying, Awkward Movement Scheme, More Badass And Romanticized Than His Original Self, Dying And Resurrected As A Badass Early In His Tale, Samurai, Ninja, Oni Form, Looking Like Takeshi Kaneshiro, Being Spat Out From Hell
  • Domains: Weapons, Combat, Heroism
  • High Priests: Yagyu Sekishusai Jubei, Jacques Blanc, Kaijin no Soki/Yuki Hideyasu
  • Allies: Akechi Mitsuhide, Sanada Yukimura, Dante Sparda, Amaterasu, Gracia, Chris & Claire Redfield, Leon Scott Kennedy
  • Enemies: Fortinbras, Demonic Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Shang Tsung
  • Really Awkward Relationship: 'Normal' Oda Nobunaga
  • Usually called Samanosuke, at first he was just known as a relative of Akechi Mitsuhide that stayed with him to the bitter end. But for some reason, he was attacked by a group of demons called the Genma, died, and resurrected by the Oni to become their champion, Onimusha, and set out to defeat the rampant villainized figures of the Sengoku Period thanks to Fortinbras. All while wielding weapons of many elements that shone in bright color depending on the element. He possessed that many variety, which became the reason of his ascension.
  • On his ascension, he was quite surprised with the changes of some figures he knew in life. For instance, the Oda Nobunaga he defeated seemed to also existed in different form, but there's another Nobunaga that looked more chill, calculating and a bit more subdued in his 'demon king image'... but overall not that much of an Evil Overlord that he knew of. This much culture shock took quite long enough for Samanosuke to get used to.
    • Of course, he also just had to get used to how his father Mitsuhide tends to suffer Split Personality in which his bad self could get as bad as the Genma themselves...
    • At least he's glad to meet the sister he rarely visited in life, Gracia. And he'll gladly tell that in his verse, Gracia turned out normally.
    • He expected that Toyotomi Hideyoshi would be a scrawny bootlicking screwball, but was shocked when he saw that Hideyoshi was instead a giant of a man... and a lot more capable to giving him a severe beatdown. While Samanosuke managed to stand his ground, he's quite surprised with this particular change.
    • He is considered a most Worthy Opponent and great rival in combat by Sanada Yukimura, one of the people that burns his warrior spirit.
  • Fortinbras was absolutely furious that the Red Onimusha himself has entered the Pantheon. Samanosuke has learned a few things from one of his high priests that he personally accompanied, Soki, and considered that he beat Fortinbras once... he can do so again. And also borrows one of the phrases from Soki himself, stating that Fortinbras is just very single-minded and can't even understand anything other than 'evil'... not being a God that should be bowed to, but just a 'piece of shit' (He'd say it in a softer manner, he's not that foul-mouthed)
  • Samanosuke was quite surprised to see Amaterasu. As far as he learned from his verse, it was Fortinbras who sired mankind, only as a Slave Race and food race for the Genma. To see Amaterasu being the protector of mankind that was abhorred with how Fortinbras acts made Samanosuke swear fealty on her and promised to aid her in case his hunch comes true that Fortinbras is planning to make his verse's history override Japan's overall.
  • His demon/Genma-slaying achievements caught the attention of the demon-slayer Dante Sparda, who likes to sometimes butt and join in Samanosuke's Genma-slaying activities. Samanosuke appreciates and respects his combat skills, but sometimes felt a bit overwhelmed when Dante decides to get a bit chatty. Also Dante stated that his weapons are pretty shiny.

    Kazuma Kuwabara 
Kazuma Kuwabara, God of Almighty Swords (Kuwabara, Kuwa-chan, Alfred, Ma Chul-ban, Guwabara, Kuwahara)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kuwabara.png
Click here to see his original outfit 
  • Intermediate God (Although his Dimension Sword can overpower Greater Gods)
  • Symbol: His Spirit Sword
  • Theme Song: Kuwabara's Theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Wields the Dimension Sword, an energy sword, which can cut through dimensions, and seemingly can't be blocked, Psychic Powers, Badass Adorable, Badass Longcoat, Boisterous Bruiser, Bruiser with a Soft Center, Is ultimately far surpassed by his friends, Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass, Delinquent Hair, Determinator, Dumb Muscle (although he does get smarter), The Heart, Knight In Sour Armor, Unskilled, but Strong, Nearly all of his offensive capabilities are some variation of energy sword, Only full-blooded human in the team
  • Domain(s): Swords, Energy, Dimensions
  • Allies: Yusuke Urameshi, Kurama, Hiei, Okuyasu Nijimura, Josuke Higashikata, Batsu Ichimonji, Roy Bromwell, Krillin, Yamcha, Finn the Human, Luke Skywalker, Miyamoto Musashi
  • Enemies: Younger Toguro, Shinobu Sensui, Volgin
  • Opposes: Vergil Sparda, Raven Branwen
  • The second-toughest kid and self-proclaimed punk at Sarayashiki Junior High School, Kazuma Kuwabara first met Yusuke Urameshi when he challenged him to a fight in order to usurp his position as the toughest. Although he lost, Kuwabara remained unperturbed and always returned to try again, becoming Yusuke's perpetual opponent and rival. Although regarded as a delinquent, Kuwabara has an iron clad code of honor. After Yusuke became a Spirit Detective, Kuwabara frequently accompanied him on his cases. Ultimate, Kuwabara mostly retired from fighting after realizing that Yusuke had far surpassed him in terms of strength and power, and eventually got into a prestigious university through sheer study and hard work.
  • While looking for his friends, Kuwabara entered the pantheon by appearing through a portal that he had created with his Dimension Sword. Impressed, the gods quickly discovered that his Dimension Sword could apparently cut through anything and they granted Kuwabara the title of God of Almighty Swords.
  • Kuwabara was quite happy to be reunited with his friends and was quick to challenge Yusuke to a fight. While Kurama gave him a friendly greeting, Hiei mocked him for being the last member of the team to ascend, much to Kuwabara's annoyance. However, he was also quite alarmed to learn that Younger Toguro and Shinobu Sensui were also present in the pantheon, although his Dimension Sword fortunately makes both of them unlikely to actively seek out a fight with him.
  • Kuwabara quickly became friends with Okuyasu Nijimura, who is very similar to him. Through Okuyasu, Kuwabara also met and befriended Josuke Higashikata. Both Okuyasu and Josuke were surprised to learn that Kuwabara's high Spirit Awareness allowed him to see their stands, although he wasn't able to injure them. The three are often seen hanging out and training together.
  • Kuwabara has also become friends with Batsu Ichimonji and Roy Bromwell. Kuwabara likes Batsu not only due to his resemblance to Yusuke, but also because of his similar devotion to friendship. He was initially dismayed to learn of Roy's former hatred of the Japanese, but was very happy to learn that he had gotten over it. Kuwabara has remained on friendly terms with both ever since.
  • He also befriended Krillin and Yamcha, who were both similarly surpassed by their non-human rivals. The three of them occasionally meet up to train together in order to get stronger.
  • Kuwabara's ability to summon and wield the Spirit Sword and Dimension Sword has drawn the attention of numerous swordwielders both in and outside of the House of Swords. Finn the Human compared the Dimension Sword to the 4-D Sword he once temporarily had. Luke Skywalker made note of the strong resemblance between his lightsaber and Kuwara's Spirit Sword, remarking that they both even make the same sound. Miyamoto Musashi was interested in seeing his power up close and challenged Kuwabara to duel. Although Kuwabara lost, Musashi aknowledged the immense power of his sword and offered to train him into becoming a proper swordsman, which Kuwabara accepted.
  • Kuwabara became enemies with Colonel Volgin after running into him. He not only dislikes him for being a torturer and a sadist, but also because he finds it extremely creepy that Volgin keeps chanting his name.
  • Kuwabara was surprised to learn of how Vergil Sparda and Raven Branwen possessed a similar ability to create portals with their swords and sought them out to see what they were like. However, upon learning of how they both were absentee parents and believe in a Might Makes Right philosophy, he quickly came to oppose them. Of the two, Kuwabara has a grudging respect for Vergil due to his code of honor and the fact that he was only absent from Nero's life due to not knowing of his existence. On the other hand, he outright dislikes Raven for deliberately abandoning her daughter and continuing to be a self-absorbed coward and hypocrite. In general, neither of them thinks particularly highly of him and they prefer to avoid him.

    Kisuke Urahara 
Kisuke Urahara, the God of Sword Canes (Getaboshi/Hat & Clogs)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/urahara_cane.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His sword Benihime, or his hat and geta sandals
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Has a Nice Hat which often hides his eyes and he never takes it off, Crazy-Prepared, Science Hero, Awesome by Analysis, Genius Bruiser, The Chessmaster, The Ace, Obfuscating Stupidity, Omnidisciplinary Scientist Surgical healing and attacks with bankai
  • Domains: Science, Intellect
  • Allies: Yoruichi Shihouin, Ichigo Kurosaki, Orihime Inoue, Kakashi Hatake, Roy Mustang, Aikuro Mikisugi
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With most of the members of the Gotei 13
  • Opposed by: Mayuri Kurotsuchi
  • Enemies: Sousuke Aizen, Embryo, Yuuki Terumi
  • Worthy Opponents mostly one-sided: Light Yagami Xanatos, Petyr, Kane (C & C)
  • He was invited by his colleague, Yoruichi. Of course she told him that he had to find a way in. He had no problem and quickly found a way in. After his ascension he tried to touch Yoruichi's butt again and was immediately kicked in the head.
  • Aizen wasn't pleased to hear of his ascension and plan on take out one of his archnemesis. As he knows he is one of the most dangerous gods, as his delayed plan had taken Aizen himself out.
  • He often makes plans with some of his fellow members intellectual members of the pantheon such as Batman, Shiroe and, Shikamaru. Unfortunately for the other alliances, this tends to work very badly in their favor.
  • His Zanpakuto is very versatile from Sword Beams, to Deflector Shields, to creating powerful bindings.
    • His Bankai is vastly different as it allows him to heal or rip apart his opponents or the environments like a surgeon.
  • He has plans to further enhance the house of combat.
  • People hate going to him when they need to mass teleport, as they wind up freefalling.
  • He often finds himself in various gambits versus his fellow Chessmasters, such as Petyr, Xanathos, Kane (command & conquer).
  • On top of his combat skills and strategic mind, he is also a genius scientist and inventor, creating objects such as gigai, which allows the ethereal to interact with the living world, a Cloak that allows the wearer to totally mask their presence, and other items. Sometimes, however, his items don't work out very well or were just prank items, which has prompted responses of the users such as: "'Amazing Armor of Justice', my ass! More like Armor of Junk!"
  • He has a habit of writing messages in red paint, such as:
    "Please meet at the Urahara Shop immediately".
    "P.S. If you think this message looks like something out of a horror movie, you have no sense of humor."
    • This really tends to annoy the gods who are a part of law enforcement.
  • He noticed how he sounds similar to a few gods. He has formed alliances with a few like Aikuro who is just as odd, made enemies with others such as Terumi (who he finds to be disgusting) and is mostly indifferent to the rest.

    Nu-13 
Nu-13, Goddess of Summoned Swords (The Calamity Trigger, V-13, No. 13, Sword of Hades)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nu_13_cf.png
  • Intermediate Goddess (Greater Goddess after absorbing Take-Mikazuchi's core)
  • Symbol: Her Nox Nyctores, Lux Sanctus: Murakumo, plus her glowing red visor and Azure Grimoire atop of it on her emblem.
  • Theme Music: Awakening the Chaos II, Fetal Movements of Chaos, Samsara of Chaos
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Batshit crazy people, psychotic mercenaries, Sword Summoning, Robot Girls, Clones, hug.exe, Being a Sadistic Psycho-Bitch, Killing anyone who gets in the way of her love.
  • Domains: Chaos, Swords, Combat, Clones, Domination, Hate, Madness, Love (twisted), Time, Souls
  • Followers: Saika, Weiss (a.k.a. Sophie), The Master, Penny Polendina
  • Allies: Ragna the Bloodedge, or so she says. The rest of the Yandere Quartet also counts, as well as Justice, Omega, Shinnok, Quan Chi, and Mileena
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Yuuki Terumi and Relius Clover
  • Enemies: Everyone and everything that isn't Ragna, or so she says. In actuality Ragna the Bloodedge, Jin Kisaragi, Noel Vermillion, Rachel Alucard, Hakumen, Kokonoe, Lambda-11, Vegeta, Raiden, Shizuo Heiwajima, Revy, Eda. As of recent, it looks like everyone (save for the Yandere Quartet and very few deities such as Justice), The Saber Marionettes, 2B
  • Ascended as part of a retaliatory strike against Kokonoe's ascension by Terumi and Relius. The day she arrived in the Pantheon, her voice resounded throughout as follows: "Loading... loading... loading... loading... Complete."
    • Upon hearing this, Ragna immediately burst off running for the darkest area of the Pantheon he could think of. Eyewitnesses report that his facial expression was similar to when he encountered the Ghost Lady.
  • Her goal is to become one with Ragna, form the Black Beast, and cause The End of the Pantheon As We Know It, because she hates everything in existence except for Ragna.
    • She still holds some respect for Yuno Gasai, having served her before in the House of Emotion. Yuno herself is encouraging every bit of her Yandere acts for Ragna.
  • Has some competition with Sakuya Izayoi and Gilgamesh, due to their similar fighting styles.
  • Anyone who gets in the way of HER Ragna faces the wrath of her ultimate technique - hug.exe. Don't let the name fool you, it is not a pleasant experience. Just ask Ragna.
  • On some occasions, presumably while she's running in Safe Mode, her personality strangely becomes that of a Valley Girl who talks like a pirate.
  • Really wants to stay away from Vegeta due to his reputation to make machines expierience fear beyond programming.
  • Has a strange relationship with Lambda. While she feels a sense of kinship around the older Murakumo, which might have something to do with her soul having at one point been inside her, she still hates her with a passion due to Ragna being more comfortable around her than herself.
  • When news has it that she was 'responsible' of the dark fate that befell Ragna, it made the majority of Pantheon look at Nu in anger and vengeance. Nu's response was a mere thought that the whole Pantheon is against her relationship which made her declare that the whole Pantheon can just get stabbed to death for getting in her way with Ragna.
  • After gaining emotions by synchronizing with Noel, she has found out that there is only one thing she feels; pure hatred. Hatred so strong that after Ragna "rejected" her, she started to hate everything, including Ragna and wants everything to die. She was ultimately subdued from her rampage and severely depowered. When people demanded that she pays for everything she's done, Noel stepped in and offered to 'rehabilitate' her instead. One can wonder if she can one day succeed obliterating Nu's dangerous Yandere factor out of her.
  • A bit annoyed that someone who pilots a mobile suit that resembles her is a total tree-hugging naive pacifist moron (in her opinion). She thinks that if she piloted the AGE-FX, she'd probably shred all the Vagans in one sitting, and Flit would approve.

  • Intermediate Gods Greater God and Goddess once Rex unlocks the Pneuma Form of the Aegis.
  • Symbol: Rex's Core Crystal or the Aegis blade.
  • Theme Music: Battle!, Counterattack
  • Alignment:
  • Domains: Swords, Kindness, Leadership, Clones.
  • Portfolio:
  • Allies: The entire heroic Xenoblade cast, including Lora, Shulk, and Dunban, KOS-MOS, Noel Vermillion, Natsu Dragneel, Link, Princess Zelda, Fi.
  • Enemies: Malos, Zanza the malevolent half, Metal Face, Yukki Terumi, Ganondorf, Galeem and Dharkon.
  • Pities: Atalanta.
  • Confused For Mithra (Shinza Bansho series), and Mithra.
  • Related to everyone.
    • Rex was once a simple salvager who lived with "Gramps" in the world of Alrest. Taking on a new mission to salvage something very special, his world changed once he came across the girl sleeping who was named Pyra. She wanted him to make a connection that would make them essentially partners that involved him touching her chest...or rather her Core Crystal to awakening this power. After being revived, both of them formed a bond as Driver and Blade to overcome the obstacles standing in the way of taking Pyra back to Elysium.
    • Despite being made from the same blade Pyra and Mythra are two distinct personalities who eventually gain their own bodies after the defeat of Malos. The reason this happened was back in the past after Mythra survived the fall of Torna along with the death of Hugo. She couldn't bear such pain not to mention getting the chance to have the kindness and humanity she didn't show towards others back then.
  • Rex and Pyra were shocked to find Malos already waiting for them in the Pantheon with that same grin on his face he had when they first battle each other. Mythra, in particular, was furious to learn of his ascension having already faced the other part of the Aegis several years in the past.
  • Exclusive to Rex
    • Rex was not a complicated fellow, his only life before meeting Pyra was living on Gramps, collecting anything worth salvaging, and practicing his sword skills ready to engage a bigger world someday. He also doesn't like it when people consider him to some little kid when he knows he's a lot more mature than people think. When asked how close he was to Pyra and Mythra, his face grew red before admitting that if there was any girl he loved the most it would be her.
    • Despite never getting to chance to meet one another Rex and Pyra became friends with Lora, her tale was something Mythra knew considering she was there in Torna many years ago. Lora was thrilled to see her again wanting to learn more from the woman who saved her life and provided the inspiration for her journey while Rex was glad to meet someone kinda like himself.
    • Rex has the ability to summon other Blades into battle alongside Pyra and Mythra such as Shulk himself, so when the robotic girl named KOS-MOS saw the duo greet her like they met before she was confused at first when she mentioned that she wasn't the same KOS-MOS they found alongside in their world. Regardless, she was quick to befriend Pyra and Mythra in order to have a better grasp on emotions that blades like themselves use in casual conversation.
    • Natsu grew to love hanging around Rex, since they both were huge believers in friendship and comradery with mostly everyone. Pyra merely laughed at Rex and Natsu trying to one-up each other in a friendly game of salvaging in the Pantheon.
    • Link admired the courage Rex displays along with his skills with a sword. After seeing him in the Champion's outfit, the two got along like they were brothers.
    • Feeling awful about what the Red Archer servant has been through before her ascension, the catgirl brought to Rex's attention reminded him a lot of Nia. She had somewhat of a similar attitude with how some of her replies could be dripping with sass much like his friend who also was part-human and part-feline.
  • Exclusive to Pyra
    • Pyra/Mythra being the Aegis are vital components of the Architect's work who is in fact the benevolent half of Zanza. After giving life to the world of Alrest, the Titans, the Aegis along with Malos, and other forms of life were meant to serve as his atonement for the crimes he's committed in his old world. Rex and Pyra had learned the intentions of Klaus even feeling sad that he was now gone, but Zansa still refused to budge on his viewpoint about the world and humans making it clear he was still their enemy.
    • Pyra keeps to her namesake by mainly utilizing fire instead of light giving her an edge when it comes to cooking in a kitchen, but it also provides a warm fire at night along with heat in cold places that Rex along with his other companions appreciated during their journey.
    • Shulk wasn't sure how Rex or Pyra would feel upon meeting him considering he was Zanza for a brief period of time however, the both of them didn't see him as some almighty deity or wielder of the Monado but merely as a fellow warrior of the people, and Pyra wanted to cook a nice dinner for everyone.
    • After talking with Dunban, a fellow and personal friend of Shulk her mind couldn't help but think back to Mòrag who was once an enemy who eventually joined their cause of reaching Elysium. Dunban hoped to meet the driver of the Mor Ardain empire one day for a friendly duel between warriors.
    • Fi was surprised to learn how animated Pyra was in terms of emotions, She hoped to learn how to express herself indicating it would have an 89% chance of befriending new deities in the pantheon.
  • Exclusive to Mythra

    Samuel Rodrigues 
Samuel Rodrigues, God of Katanas (Jetstream Sam, Minuano)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jetstream_sam_2.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His high-frequency Murasama.
  • Theme Music: The Only Thing I Know For Real
  • Alignment: True Neutral/Neutral Good in his pre-Desperado days
  • Portfolio: Brazilian Samurai, Katanas Which Have Been Upgraded for the Modern Age, Being Descended from a Family of Brazilian Katana Masters, Worthy Opponent, Living Only for Fighting, Being Badass Simply By Being DAMN GOOD With a Katana.
  • Allies: Bladewolf, Archer, Zero, Samurai Jack, Inigo Montoya, Deadpool, Heishiro Mitsurugi, Genji Shimada, Akame, Qrow Branwen, Captain Jack Sparrow.
  • Rivals: Raiden, Kamui Tokinomiya, Uzu Sanageyama, Beatrix Kiddo, Emu Hino, Vergil, Taskmaster, 2B, and any swordsman that is able to give him a good fight.
  • Enemies: The House of Justice (given his past as a mercenary)
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: His coworkers from Desperado Enforcement (Sundowner, Monsoon, Mistral, Steven Armstrong), Blake Belladona
  • Odd Friendship: Rikuo, Yang Xiao Long
  • Samuel Rodrigues came across Raiden and actually defeated him in their first encounter. He ascended after his mortal death at the hands of Raiden in their second duel in the badlands and the Pantheon, very impressed with his skills, allowed him to ascend as the God of Katanas.
  • Even though he was born in Brazil, he is actually half-Japanese and descends from a long line of swordsmen, dating back to 16th century Japan, on his father's side. However, when one of the pupils of his father murdered him, he underwent arduous training before killing said person himself and avenging his father.
    • He was amused when he heard of Inigo Montoya but then became a close friend of his after hearing that he lost his father. They like to spar in their free time together.
  • Even though he was working with Desperado Enforcement, he now has distanced himself from them and returned to working as a mercenary like the old days. He has memories of those times like taking various odd jobs, including a job as a bodyguard and as a cleaner for the Mafia.
    • He is surprisingly fond of Deadpool, a fellow mercenary like him, but he is weirded out that he sounds suspiciously like Monsoon sometimes.
  • Even for an intermediate God you shouldn't understimate him. Sam is skilled enough with his blade that he can take on Greater Gods and hold his own without breaking a sweat — he defeated Raiden in their first encounter and even went toe-to-toe with Armstrong.
  • When he met Uzu Sanageyama, he was surprised with his skills in kendo and challenged him to a battle. After a long match, Sam was very impressed with Uzu and declared him a worthy rival.
  • Has a huge admiration for Samurai Jack, since his fighting styles reminds him of the times he trained under his father. Fighting Jack is also very entertaining for Sam, since the former is no slouch when dealing with robots himself.
  • Seems to be a fan of fireworks and explosions. That's one of the reasons he seems to visit the house of Explosives a lot.
  • Though he might appear just as robotic as his fellow Winds of Destruction, the vast majority of his swordsmanship and agility comes from the man himself. On those rare occasions he loses a swordfight, his opponents are shocked to see he's barely enhanced at all, save for his right hand, which he lost while he was "interviewing" with Senator Armstrong on top of World Marshal's Denver HQ.
  • Sam bears the honor of having the best shit-eating grin in all of the Pantheon. It's so popular that he even made advertisements for Colgate
    • Even other people had tried to copy Sam's grin. Particularly, Eliza was able to mimic his smile almost perfectly.
  • Occasionaly visits the House of Technology to visit his friend Bladewolf. Nobody knows how these two became friends, but it is rumored that Sam was one of the main reasons Bladewolf decide to "be more human."
  • On the rare moments when he gets drunk and spars with another drunk Raiden (and Waluigi), this happens, earning the WTF looks from other gods and an amused smile from Dio.
  • His encounter with Remnant huntress Blake Belladona didn't exactly go very well, since his fighting style is very similar to her ex-boyfriend Adam Taurus, right down to his sword matching the one Adam uses in combat. While Blake did handle herself pretty decently, she was no match for Samuel's technique. However, she changed her mind after learning that he wasn't as bad as she though Sam was and let him be. She, however, doesn't entirely trust Sam either.
    • To make matters worse, Sam also was interested in challenging her partner Yang Xiao Long. However, he was pretty dissapointed that Yang's encounter with Adam left her with her right arm missing. Yang at first was a little hesitant to interact with Sam given that he thought he was up to no good but surprisingly, he is pretty understanding of the situation, given he too lost an arm. He has promised that when she gets better, he would return to challenge her.
  • Was weirded out that the only other Brazilian god around was the merman known as Rikuo. They have actually become friends over time and Sam has grown interested in battling Rikuo some day.
  • There has been a video circulating that retells how his fight with Raiden actually went about.
  • Sam is actually completely fluent in Japanese, but that in and of itself has caused a few problems. Due to the familiarity of his voice, many have mistaken him for a swordsman cursed with bad luck and a pirate captain. Once the three were able to meet, they were able to laugh off their similarities, with their shared voice becoming a Running Gag between the trio.
  • "We've both heard enough speeches about higher causes by now. History will decide who's right. End of story."

    Shishio Makoto 
Shishio Makoto, God of Serrated Swords (The Leader of Juppongatana/Ten Swords, A Demon of Hell, The Battōsai's Successor)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shishio_Makoto_4694.jpg
  • Theme Song: The Last Wolf Suite
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Sword "The Mugenjin" and The Symbol of The Ten Swords
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Weapon of Choice: The Mugenjin
  • Portfolio: Amazing Deducting Skills, He is covered head-to-toe in bandages, Blood Knight, Card-Carrying Villain, Diabolical Mastermind, Fair-Play Villain, What he has with his Loved one Yumi, Has a knack for surviving many Injuries, The Social Darwinist, Übermensch, Visionary Villain
  • Domains: Chaos, Rage, Fire, Swords, Evil, Feigning Death
  • Allies: Oda Nobunaga, Lu Bu, Achilles, Steven Armstrong, Lucifer, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Gilgamesh, Algol, Azula
  • Teeth Clenched Teamwork: Akainu
  • Enemies: Himura Kenshin, Cao Cao, Raiden, YHVH, Arturia Pendragon, Mordred, Roah
  • His Sword The Mugenjin is a self-sharpening serrated edge flaked away in a regular pattern as it was used, and it had become soaked in the flesh and body fat of the victims he had killed over the years. As a result he is able to execute fire-oriented techniques using the oils as fuel.
  • His philosophy is that "the flesh of the weak is the food of the strong", he expands on that claiming that he believes in his idealized vision of Japan, wherein one must be a great warrior to survive, and hence will one day become a universally proud and strong nation in the global arena.
  • This has made him aligh with Steven Armstrong as he believes that what he is going to do with America is what Shishio wants with Japan.
  • To this end he constructed a group known as the Juppongatana, though this group is not in The Pantheon he has decided to try and recreate that here with members of The Pantheon.
  • Has fought in a grand battle, this battle made him align with Akainu, though due to their personalities they only ever work together to fight the enemy after that they often try to turn on each other.
  • Is trying to get Kenshin to fight him again, this is due to the fact that he wants to prove himself stronger as well as see if Kenshin can try and prove his philosophy wrong.
  • In The Mortal World after surviving an assassination attempt that rendered him unable to produce sweat, Shishio must avoid being in any fight for more than fifteen minutes in a row. Due to the strange nature of The Pantheon he can hold out for much longer.
  • Finds the relationship between The Joker and Harley Quinn similar to his own relationship with Yumi, though he has told Joker to better understand how that sort of love can be used to have Harley give her life up for him if needed and has claimed that Harley needs to become stronger to truly be of use if she really cares for her "Puddin".
  • Scares most Demons in the House of Otherness as it is claimed that if he were to ever go to Hell he would not only enjoy it, he would take it over completely.

    Soul Calibur

  • Theme Song: "The Perfect World" "Sacred Dawn" (As Elysium)
  • Rank: Intermediate Goddess, can grow more Greater Goddess with enough power.
  • Symbol: The sword itself, surrounded by crystals and angel feathers
  • Alignment: Pure Law
  • Portfolio: Cool Sword, Empathic Weapon Can change forms best fit to her wielder, Living Weapon, Can create power crystals of ice at will, Can heal it's wielder, Excalibur Expy, Knight Templar, Can possess and persuade her wielder to do her bidding, Manipulative Bastard, Angelic Beauty, A Form You Are Comfortable With, Pure Is Not Good, Light Is Not Good, Very simillar to the thing it was created to destroy.
  • Domains: Ice, Crystals, Order, Light, Law, Shapeshifting, Weapons.
  • Allies: the GUAL.
  • Enemies: GUAG Sacred Knights, Jin Kisiragi, Bloody Maire, Anyone who uses any power she deems impure
  • Opposes: NIGHTMARE, SOUL EDGE.
  • After Algol killed his son after the boy had become possessed by the evil Soul Edge, he vowed to create a new holy sword from the shards of the cursed blade, even sacrificing his life in the process. However, his own soul ended up corrupting the weapon, making it just as malicious as Soul Edge itself. With the seal of its true nature broken during constant clashes with Nightmare, the sword unleashes her true malice on the world.
  • Her nature makes her an enemy of the GUAG Sacred Knights, who have made warnings not to seek her out. Sophitia in particular id more than ready to find a way to destroy Soul Calibur after it caused her son to fight and kill his own sister in one timeline.
  • Once the signature weapon of Seigfied, he realized it was dangerous after his last duel with Nightmare in where he was almost possessed himself, and sealed it away within The Vault. However, one day, in the midst of confusion in the Pantheon, it vanished. The Sacred Knights went on a quest to relocate it, but it wasn't long before the sword made itself known as Elysium, and pledged its allegiance to YHVH to create a pure perfect world.
  • Soul Calibur cannot comprehend Dark Is Not Evil, and so has declared war on everyone with even the slightest affiliation with darkness. This was made clear after she tried to strike down Artix, sensing his power as the Champion of Darkness inside him.
  • Wants nothing more than to purify the entire world, especially those she considers Malfested. She cares not for Good or Evil but of a world where any trace Dark is erased. Needless to say, the entire league of Evil and Chaos are both planning her destruction.
  • Jin Kisiragi loathes Soul Calibur, as it gives him a dark reminder of when he was used by his own blade, Yukianasa. Soul Calibur tried to coerce him to her side to gain control of his Power of Order, but was disdainfully discarded.
  • Finds herself at odds with Fi, despite both being Empathic Weapons with a strong since of justice. While both of them wish for peace over their respective worlds, Fi drew the line at Elysium's willingness to manipulate its wielders for its own purposes.
  • As a weapon, she is able to change its shape into any weapon she desires, allowing whoever wields her to gain ultimate power without adjusting their typical fighting style. However, Elysium herself is also able to wield the fighting style of every female goddess in the pantheon that uses weapons, making her a nightmare to fight due to her versatility.
  • Is ironically avoiding Algol as a possible wielder due to the corruption inside the former Hero King. His will would vastly outpower her own if he were to get his hands on her, and Algol would become an even greater threat than before.
  • Despite being completely sentient, it's still a sword in need of a wielder to unleash its true potential. Since she currently has no host, she is wandering the Pantheon with her last guise as Elysium, which irks Sophitia to no end.
    • It's possible for her to, like Nightmare, create a physical form for itself without a body, but no such occurrence has been seen thus far.
  • Asbel has tried to reason with the sword, but Soul Calibur rejected him due to all the times he showed mercy to his foes, even after they severely damaged the world he lived in. Worse still in her eyes was Lambda 's power flowing through him, which made him no better than a Malfested in her eyes.
  • Lysandre has an interest in the spirit sword, since their ideals seem to overlap quite often. Though Lysandre himself doesn't wish to wield Soul Calibur, there has been some talk of an new improved Ultimate Weapon being developed within the pantheon...

    Xiahou Dun 
Xiahou Dun (style name: Yuanrang), God of Intimidating Scimitars (The One-Eyed General, Marquis Zhong)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/XiahouDun_7121.jpg
  • Theme Song: Summer
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Eye patch and his sword, the Qilin Fang
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Weapon of Choice: Qilin Fang
  • Portfolio: Undying Loyalty, Eyepatch of Power, He's Cao Cao's right-hand man, Envious of Guan Yu, Tall, Dark, and Snarky
  • Domains: Loyalty, Fearlessness, Strength, Envy
  • Allies: Cao Cao, Xiahou Yuan, Masamune Date, Dian Wei, the Dovahkiin
  • Rivals: Guan Yu
  • Enemies: Oda Nobunaga, Liu Bei, Zhang Fei, Sun Ce, Lu Bu
  • His sword is known as the Qilin Fang (or Kiringa in Japanese reading), a powerful and large Podao that is used to completely defend his cousin and lord Cao Cao. He even provided his portrait for such a weapon.
    • Some say via Word of God, it's meant to be a foil to his rival Guan Yu's motif for the Azure Dragon, AKA Qinglong/Seiryuu. Some say that the original names of both his fourth and level 11 weapon reference the infamous "huolin/kakurin" (seizing bright) term, which nods to a certain person's written work being mysteriously cut-off by something akin to a qilin being hunted (or one's dying hours). Perhaps this has brought up rumors in that Xiahou Dun's stronger weapons reference a possible fact that "the qilin's fang itself may have ended that said work"....
  • Did anyone remember that one time he used a giant club? He carries that one with him too, and his historical self proves he's quite adept at using it, but is more famed for his sword skills.
  • He is often asked how he lost his eye, to which he answers that it was shot out by one of Lu Bu's archers at the battle of Xiapi/Puyang (the novel version of his history states that Cao Xing did it). He then ripped out the arrow with the eye still speared on the end of it and then decided to eat it, claiming that it had the essence of both his father and mother in it, and letting it merely waste away would be a severe disrespect. He then took quick care of a frightened-as-hell Cao Xing afterwards.
  • During an event he has worked alongside another Oda Nobunaga and Masamune Date. His cousin's disgust with this Nobunaga means that if Cao Cao wishes it Dun will kill the man. On the other hand, this Masamune amuses Xiahou as much as the other one, and no longer worships a snake, so he has elected to aid him if he ever needs it.
  • Is often envious of Guan Yu. Cao Cao sees potential in The Saint of War and has often tried to recruit him, but Dun does not share the sentiment. Should Guan Yu ever make even a hint of a move to oppose his lord, he will strike him down in an instant. However, he also feels a bit of a friendship with Lu Meng as they are both foils to Guan Yu in someway.
  • He would often raise an eyebrow over comparisons to Saix. It doesn't help that they sound alike.
  • He apparently held the secret recipe of 'Eyeball Dumpling', and rumors has it that it's how he ate his own eye. He just doesn't talk about it as much as before because everytime he mentioned that, his talk mate understandably gets Squicked.
    • That, or Xiahou Dun tries to put up a brave face when thinking back to the supposedly questionable sensation.
  • Historically, Xiahou Dun himself states he was more of a politician who studied even on the battlefield, and not an actual warrior while also being a bit lackluster on his historical military record (he's also a bit annoyed with how he's getting obsessed over by one of the Dynasty Warriors producers named Akihiro Suzuki over crap he didn't actually do). Nonetheless, he's been holding up on both his political and fighting skills on the Pantheon nowadays, even if it's not focused on battlefield strategy. That said, he's also very solid on the field of logistics and states that it's always wise to find his advantages to fall back on first as a priority.
    • Fellow gods who are fans of the original Three Kingdoms novel may like to have a "dream-match" with Xiahou Dun against Wang Lang, hoping he talks the corrupt minister down the same way Zhuge Liang did; apparently learning of Xiahou Dun's politician skills and remembering that one moment in the said novel seems to have brought this amusing thought on. Xiahou Yuanrang himself states that a fool like Wang Lang will barf blood a second time when faced with his arguments, especially since he finds it a disgrace to the man's name that the historical Wang Lang may have never been someone like that in the first place.
      • Xiahou Dun even states that if it wasn't for his cousin Cao Cao, he wouldn't be in a high ranking position at all in the first place, though he states that that is no excuse for him to slack off and abuse authority; all the more merrier to work harder for where he stands. In terms of his rivalry with Guan Yu however, he's understanding of him in that both generals tend to be far too over-hyped nowadays.
  • He lately got funny looks directed at him by Gintoki Sakata, who recalls that he might have chopped off his own dick and ate it like how he ate his eye. Of course, Xiahou Dun is disgusted with that, what came out was, "Who is this 'Kagura Dun' you spoke of!?"
  • He used to be called 'The Blind General', but we stopped putting that as an alternative name, because Dun was known to get so severely pissed at that, even historically. There was an incident when he was patrolling Queen Grimhilde's house and then the Magic Mirror makes mention of that, then he smashed that mirror to pieces out of anger. He claims to have gotten better, but we're not too sure.
  • He's on good terms with the Dovahkiin, not because of him fighting dragons, but more because the Dovahkiin was quite impressed on an actual thing that happened to Xiahou Dun putting a variation to one thing that annoyed him the most: Used to be a super fearsome general, until he took an arrow in the eye. AND ATE IT (He's still a fearsome general, though).

Yuuto Kiba, God of Erupting Swords (Prince Charming, Casanova, Darkness Knight Fang, The Prince of Kuoh Academy, Shura)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dxd_02_3517.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A crimson knight chess piece.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Beautiful Male, Broken Ace, Chick Magnet, Nice Guy, Swords User, Weak, but Skilled, May or May Not Be Into Issei, Fragile Speedster, Was Once a Girl Because of Azazel's Gender-Swapping Gun, Owes His Life To Issei After Saving Him, Having Lots of Homoerotic Subtext with Issei
  • Domains: Swords, Heroes, Vengeance, Popularity
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: YHVH, Satan, Lucifer, Ragyo Kiryuin, Yuuki Terumi, Mard Geer Tartaros, Ryoma Sengoku, Gilgamesh (Fate), Raynare, Ornstein, Shinnok, Gul'dan, Quan Chi
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Vali Lucifer, Jin Kisaragi
  • Rival: Gilgamesh (Final Fantasy)
  • Opposes: Excalibur
  • While both Shirou Emiya and Archer would be more well know of the Field of Blades trope, both of them have already ascended with different titles, thus leaving Kiba to opt for the title. His Sacred Gear, Sword Birth, has the power to sprout different swords out of the ground to attack his enemies. Not only that, it sword has a different ability to counter his opponents.
  • Issei, who has rooted for Kiba's ascension from day one, is happy to see that his best friend has finally ascended. Kiba, of course, wasted no time to go to Issei's temple upon arriving in the Pantheon grounds as a proper deity.
    • Koneko was just as happy to see Kiba again and gave him a big hug.
  • There are some deities who wonder if Kiba's relationship with Issei is just best friends or much more. It doesn't help that his proclamation of protection for Issei sounded a bit more then just friends. While Issei shrugs all claims in a very flustered fashion, Kiba just laughs in disbelief.
    • On a related note, Kiba actually turned himself into a woman to take care of a sick Issei. Apron and all. And it freaked Issei out since Fem!Kiba (or, as many call her, Yumi) was just his type.
  • Amazingly, Kiba is able to endure Excalibur's lecture...for one hour and forty-five minutes before he too can't stand him. (ﺧ益ﺨ)
  • Compared to Issei, Xenovia and Irina, Kiba is actually good friends with Ryuko Matoi and Senketsu. Might be the fact that they were both revenge prone and experimented on. This is also why he is ally with Laura Kinney.
  • Once had a run in with FF Gilgamesh who challenge Kiba in a duel for his Demon Swords he won after defeating Siegfried. After a hard fight, Kiba emerge victorious. After Gilgamesh proclaimed him "his eternal rival", one of many, he leaped out of the scene, leaving a confuse Kiba behind.
  • Like the others in the Occult Research Club, Kiba wasn't happy that Raynare some how made her way into the pantheon.
  • Was surprise to find that there was a Siegfried and a Arthur Pendragon in the pantheon. Especially when he found out that the former was female and could stand Excalibur. He often spar with the two.
  • Does not like Ryoma Sengoku because his callous attitude towards people reminds him of Valper Galilei. He also despises Ragyo Kiryuin for experimenting on his daughters.
  • Was surprise to find out that there were some deities who sounded like him like Mamuro Chiba, Fox McCloud, and Shiki Tohno. He actually look up to Mamoru for his protective nature.
  • Like the other members of the ORC, Kiba has befriended Luka, whom he respects for his desire for a peaceful coexistence between monsters and human beings. Luka in turn does sympathize with Kiba due to his bad experiences of getting experimented on by religious fanatics, saying that it reminds him of his experiences with angels in his own world.
  • Kiba's ability to create multiple sword isn't limited to just Demon Swords, he can also create Holy Swords thanks to his second Sacred Gear, Blade Blacksmith. It also has a second ability call Glory Drag Trooper which can create an army of dragon knights and copy its user's techniques and speed. Though, for now, they can only copy Kiba's speed.
    • Found out that the original Jeanne d'Arc also have a similiar ability of summoning dragon knights to do her bidding. However, she denies ever leaving any descendants in her time.

Lesser Gods

    Fiora Laurent 
Fiora Laurent, Goddess of Rapier Combat (The Grand Duelist, Fio)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fiora_originalloading.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The crossing of two rapiers above the symbol of House Laurent
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Elegant Rapier Combat, Sensing And Hitting Weak Spots, Smug Sense Of Superiority, Sexy French Accent Despite Not Being Actually French, Going Through Armors, Being an Attractive Teacher Off Time
  • Domain: Weapons, Combat, Royalty
  • Allies: Champions of Runeterra (specifically those hailing from Demacia, except those from House Crownguard), Weiss Schnee, Helena Douglas, Marth, Ryuko Matoi & Senketsu
  • Rivals: The Defenders of the Ancient (especially Yurnero the Juggernaut), Garen Crownguard, Luxanna Crownguard, Lyndis, Zorro, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon
  • Enemies: Darius, Draven, Katarina du Couteau, Kitana
  • Once, she was a follower of Weiss Schnee, until Weiss herself was thinking to relocate. Out of her possible replacements, it was Fiora who came out on top and eventually won the rights of succeeding Weiss. A goddamn tough battle too, as Fiora was capable of deducing Weiss' weak spots and quickly striking it, with Weiss only barely managed to block it. As far as Fiora's concerned, while she still respects Weiss, it is yet another way to restore the honor of House Laurent.
    • Before she took the title, she was challenged by Weiss's former high priest. The challenger Zorro took her to the limit, but Fiora eventually succeeded in defeating the masked man as well. Zorro later commented on holding back on her, taking a liking to the Demacian. The two are strictly rivals though.
  • In spite being Demacian, she doesn't seem to get along well with those hailing from the Crownguard house, such as Garen and Lux. Even if they try to be nice at her, Fiora doesn't seem to tell why she's annoyed at them, instead choosing to be smug as hell with their style. In truth, it's because their house tried to offer an Arranged Marriage to control her, she refused, this caused her father to fall from grace.
    • In addition, during her days being a follower of Weiss, Fiora had an encounter with Garen's housemate Yurnero the Juggernaut. What happened afterwards was an invisible battle where both combatants moves lightning fast trying to slice each other with their ultimate strikes. Ultimately however, Fiora's Blade Waltz lost against Yurnero's Omnislash, rendering Fiora unable to use that technique again. Although she recovered and retrained with the help of Weiss, Fiora has never forgotten the humiliation and swore to one day be victorious in a rematch with Yurnero.
  • She was surprised to see someone called Jax in the Pantheon, but when it turned out it's just a certain Major Jackson Briggs, Fiora quickly lost interest. It's not the Grandmaster at Arms that she's a rival with.
  • There were at least some people who took note of her house's fall from grace and offered their help, such as Marth or Helena Douglas. For once, Fiora is pretty grateful at them and accepted them as friends (though on Helena, there's one and another reason.)
  • Is absolutely disgusted at the actions taken by Kitana, with Fiora claiming that by submitting to her own anger and embracing evil, she pretty much lost every dignity she could have preserved thus someone unworthy of some 'Royalty'. Fiora refused to even acknowledge they sound familiar, insisting it's just some demon using mimicry.
  • She was once visited by Lyndis who thought that she was one of the Pegasus Knights that was the big sister of one of her best friends Florina. Unfortunately, Fiora made the mistake of smugly criticizing her sword play and a bit of her plainswoman background, and so they ended up becoming rivals after she managed to parry the strikes of an angered Lyndis.
    • She also had a similar thing happening towards Shulk, who nearly mistook her as his Mechon friend Fiora. Of course, he had a premonition not to insult her further or anything and chose to leave before Fiora could spew a smug remark.
  • Though not exactly an accomplished artist, Fiora is known to make up some 'pretty pictures' out of air with her rapier. No one knows if she ever does that on a paper.
  • Sometimes she trades her rapier to a longass thick ruler and starts teaching things on the Academy. More or less, she's annoyed that any class she visits tends to be very unruly, doing misconducts just so for a chance of getting spanked by her in 'discipline'.
  • With her strand of red hair, there were many who thought she could be a long-lost relative to Ryuko Matoi. Fiora decided to pay her a visit and after one mighty duel, declared her one of her Worthy Opponent, and also getting a privilege to wear the Senketsu for a short moment.
  • Others try. I succeed!

    Isador "Machete" Cortes 
Isador Cortes, God of Machetes (Machete)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/machete_2.jpg
  • Theme Song: Machete theme
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His machete
  • Alignment: True Neutral with good tendencies.
  • Portfolio: Dashing Hispanic Who was wanted for an attempted hit, Badass Biker, Mustache and Longcoat, Invincible Hero, has crazy machete throwing skills, Technical Pacifist, The Stoic
  • Domains: Swords, Strength, War, Liberation, Protection
  • Followers: The Machete Brothers, Cliff Hudson
  • Allies: John Marston, John Wick, Inigo Montoya, Zorro, Boba Fett (brielfy rivals)
  • Enemies: Jason Voorhees, Calvin Candie and Stephen, The House of Justice in general, especially Rosco P. Coltrane, Sundowner
  • Jason had ruled supreme over the Pantheon thanks to popularizing the use of machetes. But there was one man who wanted to take the throne from him. A Latino man in a bike rode to the front of the temple. With him were two massive machetes. He entered the temple without a word…but that was quickly extinguished with constant crashes, explosions and utter destruction. In the end the man returned to the front, declaring victory. Thus Machete earned his place in the Pantheon as the new God of Machetes.
    • It was not the end of Jason though. He sought refuge in a new temple for himself. But one thing is clear; he won't stop until Machete is killed and chopped up into multiple pieces.
  • His origin story is a bit blurry. Everyone agrees with the stories he told in his two films. But there were rumors he made an appearance in an earlier film. Some even believe that he appeared with a couple of kid spies as a gadget inventor. Machete has refrained from commenting on those potential cameos to avoid a Continuity Snarl.
  • While Machete does not work anywhere near a jungle, a lot of hunters (good and evil alike) have employed the use of the weapon to plow through them. It is that reason that they make up a significant number of his clergy.
  • Is sometimes under the employment of Boba Fett though the partnership can be contentious at times. For example, a few bounty hunters went after Machete after a failed hit himself. That and he hardly ever kills his victims anyways.
  • Is good friends with John Marston, who he slightly envies for getting out of the game if only for a brief time. The retired outlaw has mixed feelings for the country of Mexico. He may have played both sides of the Mexican Civil War, but Machete is no friend of eeither goverments either.
  • Had wished that John Wick could have retired as well. Instead, the mobster is in deeper than he could ever imagine. With that said, Machete refuses to take the hit on Wick. That hasn't stopped people from speculating who would win in a fight.
  • Machete is used to dealing with people who hate him for his race as well as someone who doesn't enter the US legally. Yet he did not expect hospitality from Calvin, at least not at first. Calvin allowed the Latino into his mansion to discuss matters. He was willing to let Machete walk as long as he started working for him. That and denounce his own people. It seemed like a deal for Machete when he took the slave owner's hand. That is until he used his other hand to chop Calvin's off. The ensuing gunfight tore up the entire building, but it was Machete who managed to walk out of there. He may be a criminal, but he was no sell-out.
  • Naturally, people like him aren't welcome in the House of Justice. Killer or not, Judge Dredd wants to put that man in the cube for all of his past crimes. It's not like Machete likes cops either. They always tend to get in the way of things.
    • He especially hates to deal with corrupt cops. It didn't matter which side of the border he does his work; those kind of cops are the ones who are out to get him the most. Luckily for him, Rosco is not nearly as dangerous as the ones he deals with back home.
  • Sundowner offered to sell him one of his trademark machetes for use. So it was a shock for him when Machete threw them right back at him. Working for a hit is one thing, but making a profit out of war in general left a bad taste in his mouth and he wanted no part in it.
  • While not exactly a Dashing Hispanic, he gets along fairly well against Inigo Montoya. He stated that things would probably have gone differently if the Dread Pirate simply told him of his true intentions.
  • Makes for a truly bizarre pairing with Zorro. The dashing swordsman was a bit disappointed with the current state of his country as well as that of its heroes. No longer of the charismatic kind, they have been replaced with tough and gritty characters such as Machete. Nevertheless, he suspects that Isador also seeks a better Mexico.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9f4060c640938747f7985a907cb06b83.png
  • Lesser God with any of his other 107 swords. Greater God with Oboro Muramasa
  • Symbol: A katana or nodachi and its sheath crossed together and seven skulls
  • Theme Music: Tacit Understanding
  • Weapon of Choice: His 108 Demon Blades, including the Oboro Muramasa
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Amnesiac Anti-Hero, Wielder of Demon Blades, Oboro Style, Ninja, Scarf Of Asskicking, Sir Swears-a-Lot, Soul Fusion, Dead All Along, Mental Time Travel, Walking the Earth.
  • Domains: Swords, Ninjas, Heroes
  • Allies: Odin, Goemon Ishikawa XIII, Artoria Pendragon, Ryu Hayabusa, Tokugawa Ieyasu, Homura and the Crimson Squad, Dust
  • Enemies: Soul Edge (and Nightmare due of that), Arachne, Aya Shameimaru, Yuugi Hoshiguma, Nyotengu
  • Opposes: Anyone who wields a Muramasa (or demonic blades in general)
  • Ascended into the Pantheon after gods noticed that he can wield many swords what thirst for blood without succumbing to their will thanks to the mastery over the Oboro Style. He would have ascended with Momohime, but after discovering that her skills come from being possessed by the ronin Jinkuro, who always ends up in some sort of situation no matter what path he and Momohime takes, two of which being Kisuke's fault, making her unable to ascend with him.
  • He has one of largest collections of weapons in the Pantheon, having about 108 Demon Blades. Aside of having different attributes, all of them are extremely sharp, being able to cut almost anything, like demons, dragons, gods and even a soul out of some one's body without damaging the body itself. Unfortunately, they break a lot, and where he can fix them by sheathing the broken blade, he has an unofficial title of God of Breakable Weapons.
    • However, the rest of those cannot compare to his last Demon Blade, the Oboro Muramasa, which is sharp enough to allow him to cut through fate itself, allowing him to transfer him memory and the blade into his past self.
  • Is trying to get the Soul Edge to himself, so that he can expend the evil within it, leaving behind just the sword, just like what he intents to do with Kuzuryuu Muramasa. Considering that he would most likely be able to resist Soul Edge's influence, the Soul Edge is understandably afraid of him.
  • He seems to have a bad habit of accidentally walking into women taking a bath in hot springs (or women walking into him while he is taking a bath). Fortunately he has managed consistently avoid Pervert Revenge Mode. He does wonder if Sun Wukong is messing with him as he usually is accompanied with monkeys as he goes to take a bath.
  • Yusuke Fujisaki once tired to have a Boke and Tsukkomi Routine with him due of having two guys who sounds the same doing one being brilliant. Kisuke offered to be the "Straight-the-hell-out-of-here Man".
  • One of few people he can be genuinely nice to is Arturia. The only reason is that hearing her talk bring him memories, but refuses to say anything further. Only further hint he gives is that he wonders if she has ever carried a bow.
    • However, where their relation is just a man protecting a royalty out of personal reasons, some gods at House of Love have tried matching them together. Kisuke sometimes mutters to himself that "why he had to ask help from that kitsune in the first place..."
  • He once visited Bahamut as a way to find out if he was mad for a possibility that he beat some sense to what he assumes is one of his avatars, though Bahamut did not take offense to that. He is already after many different youkai, or creatures what are closely related to some youkai, just in case. He is also keeping his eyes out for Cerberus and Great Grey Wolf Sif, in case they turn out to be as bad as that damned dog god Inugami.
    • He also gathered enough courage to tell Tokugawa Ieyasu that he killed one of his descendants. However, after Ieyasu heard why he did it, he forgave him for his actions, feeling ashamed how one of his descendants would turn out to be so evil.
  • If you were to ask him why he has a dislike for anyone else who wields a demonic blades, he wouldn't really tell you. Only think he knows is that he feels like he made a promise to desroy all blades made by Muramasa. Of course he is doing this so that no one ends up being corrputed by those blades.
  • At first, he tried to attack Homura because he wanted to destroy her Engetsuka, thinking it was a Demon Blade. However, after they found out that the both of them are degenerate ninjas out to destroy greater evil forces, he let her go and he is now an ally of sort to the Crimson Squad.
  • There is an interesting reason why he isn't called a god. When he realized that in one timeline, he went ahead and lashed out at Amitabha for letting Torahime die before she would complete her mission and as such, he isn't worthy of being called a god.

    Raven Branwen 
Raven Branwen, Goddess of Creating Portals With Her Sword and Detachable Dust Swords (Huntress, Leader of the Branwen Tribe, Bird Mom, Spring Maiden)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/raven_amity_arena.png
  • Lesser Goddess on the surface but actually is Intermediate as the Spring Maiden
  • Symbol: Her Gears symbol, and her hunter mask
  • Theme Song: "All Things Must Die"; alternatively, this
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, later Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Byronic Heroine, Only Cares About Surviving, Remnant's Only Samurai-Based Warrior, Being Named with Her Brother, After Birds, Might Makes Right, Strong and Skilled, Uses Her Semblance To Watch Over Yang
  • Domains: Swords, Bandits, Portals, Birds, Ice
  • Herald: Vernal
  • Superior: Monty Oum
  • Allies: Nine the Phantom, Velvet Crowe
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork With: Roman Torchwick, Akame
  • Enemies:
  • Opposed by: Yang Xiao Long (Her Daughter), Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, Ragna, Ryuko Matoi and Senketsu, Satsuki Kiryuin, Pearl (Steven Universe)
  • Rivals: Hakumen, Esdeath, Samuel Rodrigues, Vergil
  • Pities: Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader
  • Feared by: Neo Politan, The Blood Gulch Crew (apart from Sarge, who appears to love her)
  • In the land of Remnant was a small tribe of bandits led by Yang's mother and former member of Team STRQ: Raven Branwen. With her reputation as a former hunter and currently leader of a small group of fugitives, she quickly familiarized herself with those respective houses in the Pantheon while knowing she was dreading seeing her daughter once again along with her twin brother.
  • Raven was given the same ability as her brother: to become a bird (in her case the raven), but while Qrow appreciates this gift she considered it a terrible curse. Along with her fighting skills with her dust swords, her semblance can allow her to transport herself towards everyone she has a close bond with such as her daughter Yang. Of course, the real secret behind her strength that drove back even Neo was the fact she is the real Spring Maiden. After killing the previous maiden and stealing her power, the former Huntress used Vernal as a fake scapegoat to fool everyone else into believing she was the real one.
  • After her last confrontation with Yang and her team, she had expressed remorse over the fact she'd been in hiding all this time, not willing to fight Salem with everyone else, and overall being a very uncaring parent to her child. As expected, the blonde-haired member of Team RWBY practically wanted nothing to do with Raven feeling shame about the life choices she had made as her mother.
  • Qrow also could barely bring himself to even consider her a sibling after the stunt that she tried pulling in Haven Academy by taking his life. While she tried killing Cinder in the ensuing battle, the rift between them seemed further apart than ever despite being flesh and blood.
    • Despite her issues with Salem's flunkies, she is willing to cooperate with Cinder's accomplice in the Pantheon (much to Team RWBY's confusion), Roman Torchwick. Much like the crimelord, Raven is willing to do just about anything in order to survive in Remnant over dying at Salem's hands and Roman was perfectly fine with that philosophy.
    • As for Cinder, however, the exact opposite feelings were had for the disciple of Salem who took away Vernal during their last battle. Raven was ready to cut off Cinder's head ignoring the rules set by the other gods while the defeated Fall Maiden wanted payback as well plotting to get rid of another enemy on her long list of adversaries.
    • For mostly the same reasons Raven deems Cinder a complete monster Adam is someone she also hates with a passion for his racism and hatred for mankind, even mocking him for becoming the very thing he vowed to destroy under the banner of the White Fang.
  • Once the Blood Gulch Crew learned another RWBY deity ascended, they went to see Raven, who in turn thought it was an invasion and threatened them. Washington responded saying they had no ill intentions, but hearing Ozpin's voice triggered Raven the wrong way and she downright yelled at them to no approach her again. They have kept the distance ever since... except Sarge, who was downright aroused by her violent behavior and is constantly sending bouquets of roses with shotgun shells to her shrine hoping Raven will someday date him.
  • Many debate on how good of a parent Raven truly is to Yang, since unlike with Ragyo who disregarded her own daughter as a failure she at least came to her aid once as Raven despises Ragyo for being a lot like Salem, but unlike someone like Nine who at one point seemed like a caring individual Raven has only become colder over the years.
  • Ragna figured out how easily Raven let such pride consume much of her compassion and kindness towards others long ago. While he can admit she isn't the worst kind of mom in the Pantheon, despite Raven's attractive figure she offers less as a mother-figure, something Raven takes no shame in admitting both about her outfit and parental history.
  • Despite how Velvet might feel about Raven's motherly behavior, she does admire the fact she finally stood up against those who've been haunting her life feeling reminded of her own path of revenge. Raven also was surprised by how similar the former human turned Therion looked like herself.
    • This also extends to the former Imperial Assassin of Night Raid who feels likes she's been a coward in hiding for too long when she could have easily joined to fight against Salem. Akame knows that Raven has a heavy burden on her shoulders protecting her tribe, and yet, she can't forgive her treatment of her own child feeling reminded of her own past before joining the rebellion. As for Esdeath she merely finds the Spring Maiden a good potential challenge much like the Fall Maiden Cinder while admiring Raven's idealism of the world.
  • Charles wondered if Raven could agree with his reasons for believing in a world without masks considering they both thought they were strong enough to survive, but she refused to join his side feeling that his plan and methods were too extreme and much too similar to Salem.
  • Pearl declined to comment on her feelings towards the bandit leader, but she was surprised to learn about her ability to become a raven.
  • Vergil along with "Sam" quickly stepped up to challenge Raven to battle wondering how skilled she was in battle compared to him, Also, the half-human demon is in the possession of Yamato, the O-Katana that can cut through dimensions similar to how Raven moves around the Pantheon. Since Raven's blades and fighting style matched the hired swordsman of Desperado Enforcement. He also complimented her on her beautiful hair, but somewhat felt disappointed to hear that she was married, even if the relationship was very much strained.
  • Kaito Kumon and Anakin Skywalker both might understand where Yang's mother comes from in some aspects. Anakin doesn't think Raven should justify her aloof nature around Yang. As for Kaito however, he believes the strongest should protect, and those who are strong but target the weak are scum, a complete opposite to Raven's worldview and that is simply...
  • "The weak die, the strong live. Those are the rules."

Yomi, Goddess of the Sword Plant (The Petite And Penniless Princess Pain-Provider, Chopped Bean Sprout Mask, Sis, HelloComputerImYomi)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kagura_yomi.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A Burrowing Ratsnake with it's head having been chopped off with her sword "Ragnarok" on a garden of mung beans
  • Theme Music: Envious Gaze, A Silent Fury, Sprouts of Fire, I Devote Myself To Sprouts -My Lovely Bean Sprouts-, Initials M.Y.S., Bean Sprouts and My Seafood
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (used to be Neutral Evil)
  • Portfolio: Bean Sprouts, Swinging Around A Huge Sword, Sword Plant, Arm Cannon, Automatic Crossbow, Affably Evil Maniac, Team Mom, Pimped-Out Dress, Rapunzel Hair, Shinobi
  • Domains: Bean Sprouts, Shinobi, Swords, Poverty
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: People who hate bean sprouts, Lysandre, Orochi, the other Orochi
  • Former Enemies: Students of Hanzou, Hebijo and Gessen Academies
  • Opposes: The House of Commerce, Royalty, and rich people and upper class in general (especially Eliza and Neil Reagan)
  • Unknown Opinions of: Murasame
  • Originally, some of the gods decided to amuse her and ascended her as the Goddess of Bean Sprouts (and trust us, she is obsessed with them to the point you cannot question it). However, when others noticed that she tends to plant her humongous broadsword into the ground to the point where she uses it as an attack technique, some gods decided to actually take her ascension seriously. She didn't mind.
  • Due of living her entire life in the slums, and having her parents die so that she can live with little bit more fortune, she hates rich people. To her, they are heartless bastards who don't deserve their fortune. However, after meeting Ikaruga, she started to mellow down, but still dislikes them unless they can proof to her that they are good people and care about those below them (like Perrine, who's actions to rebuilt her homeland honestly shocked her).
    • Good way to get her trust even if you are from the upper class is to proof that you came from either the lower class or the middle class. Flynn for example, has avoided provoking Yomi even if samurais are part of the upper class of his world due the fact that he was dirt poor back in the days.
    • However, one person she absolutely despises is Lysandre. Not because he is rich, oh no. But because he would only allow the rich to enter his ideal world. Needless to say, she is ready to storm the House of Hatred to get his head.
    • Oddly enough, she doesn't really mind living in poverty that much. She would gladly donate everything she has if it means making sure one less person would starve. In fact, she sometimes goes around Pantheon in order to "advice" people to tone down on their "luxurious" life.
  • Some say that she practically stole Guts' arsenal of weapons. For the most part, she doesn't seem to mind, though some gods wonder if in order to differentiate herself from Guts, she upgraded her sword to have an in-built chainsaw inside it.
  • She once tried going to the Bladed Weapons sub-house of House of Weapons. She was first stopped by Shirabe for sounding like Kirika and then by Shigure Kosaka for sounding like her. She didn't really feel like going back before her reassignment.
  • Is surprisingly good chef, even if her cooking can be on the cheap side (like cooking wild grass).
  • She seems to be a fan of Norse Mythology, as noted with her Theme Naming of her Ninja Arts, though no one has asked her to confirm that fact.
  • Became fast friends with Eve Santaclaus after finding out that Eve used to be homeless and makes her money by helping people celebrate Christmas. This only improved when Eve found her bean sprout delicious. Since then, Eve has talked to Yomi about good people rich and poor who she's given gifts to and set up parties for, in hopes of helping Yomi get past her hatred of rich people. Time will tell how well this works.
