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 and 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")
  • 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.

Shana, Goddess of the Flaming Swords (The Flame-Haired, Hot-Eyed Hunter; Yukari Hirai)


Intermediate Gods

Artorias, God of Worn-Out Divine Swords (Knight Artorias, Sir Artorias the Abysswalker, Artorias of the Abyss, The Wolf Knight of Farron, R2orias)
  • 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 ensure that they can be safe from the Abyss inside him.

    Samanosuke Akechi 
Hidemitsu Samanosuke Akechi, God of Multi-Colored Blades (Samanosuke, Red Onimusha, Nankobou Tenkai)
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 finger (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 Being 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)
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)
  • 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, Goddess of Summoned Swords (The Calamity Trigger, V-13, No. 13, Sword of Hades)
  • 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: 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:
  • Complicated Relationship: Ragna the Bloodedge
  • 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 experience 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.

    Rex & Pyra/Mythra 
Rex & Pyra/Mythra, Divine Wielders of the Plot-Important Sword (Rex: Rex-Rex, Salvager, Master Driver | Pyra/Mythra: Homura/Hikari, "Simpleton", The Aegis, Pneuma)
Click here to see Mythra 
Click here to see Pneuma 
  • 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

  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: His coworkers from Desperado Enforcement (Sundowner, Monsoon, Mistral, Steven Armstrong), Blake Belladona

  • 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.
    • Later, he met fellow Japanese-Brazilian Laura Matsuda, who he learned was a martial artist promoting her family's fighting art. Upon learning this, he challenged her to a fight, and even agreed to go hand-to-hand. Without using his sword or making much of his enhancements, she proved superior but he still held his own, impressing her well enough. They occasionally spar and hang out since then. Though she disapproves of his work, her carefree nature makes her easy to relax around and being one of her "grappling buds" helps him improve his skills.
  • 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)

  • 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 
Soul Calibur, The Unholy Holy Sword (Krita-Yuga, Excalibur, The Spirit Sword, The Sword of Salvation, Elysium)
Click here to see her true form, Elysium 
  • 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
  • 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)
  • 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 
Yuuto Kiba, God of Erupting Swords (Prince Charming, Casanova, Darkness Knight Fang, The Prince of Kuoh Academy, Shura)
  • Theme Song: Sympathy, Bokutachi no Omoi
  • 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 allied 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 somehow 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

    Ciggma Khint 
"We have a contract. You'll get your money's worth."

Ciggma Khint, God of Spell Blades (The Spell Fencer, Ikuma Naerik)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His sword
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Spell Blade, Magic Knight, Nothing Personal, Perpetual Frowner, Professional Killer, Significant Anagram, Badass Baritone, Can Imbue His Blade With Silence As Well As Poison And Death, Only in It for the Money, Leaving When Things Go Sour For His Client Unless The Payment Is Exorbitant Enough, Technically Fulfilled His Goals: Paying For His Ill Daughter's Treatments, In Hiding In The Sequel
  • Domain(s): Spell Blade, Mercenary, Money
  • High Priest: Fayt
  • Rivals: Other Bounty Hunters such as Boba Fett and Agent 47
  • Enemies: Airy, Ouroboros
  • Additional Relationships: The Heroes of Luxendarc (sans Yew and Magnolia)
  • Dislikes: Talkative types
  • The Heroes of Luxendarc first encountered Ciggma Khint while he was under the employ of the K&P Merchantry in Ancheim. Twice he fought them alongside the Jackal and Erutus Profiteur separately before eventually ditching them when they started losing. His final bout with them in the first loop was alongside Eloch Quentis Khamer VIII, the then-ruler of Ancheim. Having been paid the entire treasury for his contract, Khint fought Tiz and company to the bitter end.
    • Prior to that, even before he claimed the Spell Fencer Asterisk, he served in the Eternian Duchy as a squadron commander, with Holly Whyte—who would eventually hold the White Mage Asterisk—as one of the members of the unit under his command. She and Einheria Venus—eventual holder of the Valkyrie Asterisk, and someone Edea Lee looked up to—viewed him in high regard.
  • Is in hiding during the events of the Glanz Empire's attack, he was approached by a Pantheon envoy and invited. For reasons only he knows, he took the offer, and was eventually ascended as a deity.
  • He doesn't hold his defeat to Tiz and company against them; that's just part of the mercenary life. And he had ultimately got what he wanted by the end. And since he's a mercenary, should they wish to, he's willing to accept them as contractors.
  • As part of his position, he's been granted the abilities of his Spell Fencer Asterisk, which he heard was now in the Treasury. This includes Asterisk space to prevent escape, though it goes away if Khint leaves the battle.
  • He used to have exorbitant surcharges to likely help compensate his sick daughter should he end up dying, which is what happened to him before the Adventurer saved him (and many others Tiz and company defeated) from the brink. But since Death Is Cheap in the Pantheon, Khint was required to reassess his fee system before joining the market again for contracts. The Eight Travelers are among his more frequent employers.
  • Many mercenaries look down on Khint for his dynamic contract fee since they deem it unprofessional to back out on a client when a price is agreed on.
  • As someone who turned to a life of crime to pay for illness treatment, Khint sort of understands Walter White's motivations when the drug lord hired him one time. Though for White's it's his own while for Khint's it's his daughter's. That said, given White's occasional bouts of ego, which can lead to recklessness, as well as how he treats his allies, Khint keeps their relationship professional, and is always ready to leave should things get too dicey.
  • Given the exorbitant bounty on John Wick, Khint is among those who fancy a chance in claiming it. Given their differences in their Weapon of Choice, he often ends up as just another notch in Wick's kill count.
  • As someone who's undergone the mercenary life, Khint was approached one day by Han Solo and Chewbacca. The former can relate to only caring for his next payment (before turning over a new leaf when he joined the Rebel Alliance), and the latter is trying to encourage Khint to becoming a full-fledged good guy, like he had done with Han, though the Wookiee language is admittedly hard to understand.
  • Also found in the sub-House of Combat Magic.
  • "My contract ends here. I'll take my leave."

    Fiora Laurent 
Fiora Laurent, Goddess of Rapier Combat (The Grand Duelist, Fio)
  • 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)

  • 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

  • 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.

Isabella "Ivy" Valentine, Goddess of Whip Swords (Daughter of Cervantes)

    Kisuke Uzuki 
Kisuke Uzuki, The Celestial Wielder of Blood-Thirsting Blades (Kanbei)
  • 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 his hands on the grand-daddy of all cursed swords, the Soul Edge, so that he can expend the evil within it, leaving behind just the sword, just like what he intends to do with Kuzuryuu Muramasa. Considering that he would most likely be able to resist Soul Edge's influence, the Soul Edge wants absolutely nothing to do with him, and may be 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 blade, he wouldn't really tell you. The only thing he knows is that he feels like he made a promise to destroy all blades made by Muramasa. Of course he is doing this so that no one ends up being corrupted 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.

  • It was a slow day at the Warriors for Hire headquarters ever since their final episode. That was until Radicles returned, this time voluntarily to see Witchy Simone again, whom he had befriended during his time in Lyvsheria, and this time with his friend Kaio "K.O." Kincaid, who tangentially heard of the Warriors through him. Rad was pretty cool with the Warriors essentially abducting him from his universe via the Legendary Hyperspace Magisword, and he did get the Fistful of POW Magisword from Prohyas during his time there, so he decided to return the favor when he and K.O. were browsing untaken tropes. They also sent an invite to the Pantheon.
    • With a new realm open, and by extension prospective work available, as well as adventures galore, the Warriors immediately jumped at the offer, packed what stuff they had, and departed for the Trope Pantheons, where they were shortly ascended for their collection of oddly-shaped Magiswords. And with their show cancelled, there was no need to worry too much about leaving too much behind (though as Princess Zange's to-go mercenaries, they do return to Lyvsheria sometimes to heed her call).
  • A new Warriors for Hire headquarters was shortly set up as their temple, which possesses—apart from the basic commodities of the old HQ—a gallery full of images of the most impractically-shaped swords across all of fiction. And with all of the things that happen in the Pantheon, there's no shortage of mercenary work, even for the Warrior siblings, and there's no rent to pay, though cleanups will still have to be done by the duo (or by hiring cleaners). As for advertising, to keep from going too far again that Grup had to stop them, they're forced to sign up at the mercenary guild Pantheonic Soldiers of Fortune to get work.
    • They have a massive collection of Magiswords acquired throughout their adventures in Rhyboflavin, which are stored in compact forms inside pouches specially for Magiswords. "Upgraded" pouches were provided to further minimize rummaging, prevent folks from swiping them, and digital catalogs (that keep track of the pouches' contents) were also offered so that an ally can check which of the Warriors' Magiswords would be best useful for the situation.
      • There's also a return-to-hand system applied to all their Magiswords so that if any of them get lost in the heat of battle, they can easily be called back. In the event a Magisword gets broken (which shouldn't be possible as Magiswords are established to be unbreakable), sentient ones get revived at the House of Life and Death, and the rest…well, the system is still in progress.
      • Despite their name, very few Magiswords are capable of being used as actual swords. A Magisword is more accurately compared to a Magic Wand, being used to summon things or manipulate existence.
    • When they need to travel fast, the Warriors have Hoverswords for the job, but these cannot function on non-solid surfaces, such as water, and they perform poorly over rocky surfaces, limiting their use. There's also the Rad Rocket Magisword, though it can be unreliable. The Dolphin Magisword can be used for uncontrollable water travel, but it's exclusive to Prohyas. With some ingenuity, Vambre once made a makeshift boat with a celery stalk summoned by the Celery Magisword and the Blow Dryer Magisword as the motor. And other Magiswords can be used in all sorts of creative ways.
    • As someone who likes swords, Fighter McWarrior became an instant friend of theirs and was even allowed to borrow a few of their Magiswords, which he occasionally uses to great and impossible effect.
    • In regards to other Cartoon Network deities, they've met a few of them so far.
      • Finn was easily enamored by their collection of weaponry and has even borrowed a few Magiswords during fights together.
      • Pearl is exasperated by their ineptitude at swordplay despite their capability otherwise via their Magiswords' abilities. After one thing led to another, and then to another, two one-on-one matches were hosted in the House of Weapons: Pearl vs. Vambre, and Connie vs. Prohyas. Needless to say, despite the Warriors' wide arsenal not making it a cakewalk for the Crystal Gems, the student and master managed to hand the siblings' asses to them.
      • While Samurai Jack can respect their heroism, he finds their… deficiency in other aspects important in battle a real concern.
    • For mysterious reasons, a few Magiswords that they have yet to collect have started popping up all over the Pantheon, and once the jobs with them as rewards started appearing, the Warriors immediately gunned for them whenever they can. That said, given that some Magiswords are actually pretty damn useful, those jobs usually get taken by others, and they end up going for the less useful ones, but that's not a matter of concern for them; they're Magisword collectors, after all.
    • As a result of their… general performance in sword battles, the Warrior siblings have been forced to attend Elysium Academy to learn proper swordsmanship (for times when they either might be deprived of their Magiswords, or their powers be nullified) puzzle-solving skills (Magiswords are admittedly useful for specific situations), strategies (besides barging in, and barging in from an unexpected angle), and other important life lessons.
      • Training them used to be surprisingly difficult, until a strange means of motivation came in the form of Vergil Sparda of all people. Not for any actual nice reason, but because he's embarrassed with the idea that they would be considered swordsmen. In fact, for the first few weeks ever since he encountered them, he routinely curb-stomped the duo each time he crossed paths with them and if he had the time. His brother Dante eventually approached the pair one day and gave this hypothesis.
      • Another incentive to train is the fact that despite all the cool stuff in the Pantheon, Magiswords weren't among them until now, which means despite their recent appearance all over the Pantheon, most everybody who wants one will be gunning for the Warriors, because the Pantheon won't tolerate them raiding Lyvsheria to get Magiswords there (even if they were to buy them). FF!Gilgamesh is on the top of that list, and thanks to his multiversal travels, he's shown to have a few Magiswords already! He often attempts to challenge them for their Magiswords, and it's become a hassle to have to keep running from him. A shame, since they could've been friends otherwise as fellow Magisword collectors, of which they are more alone in than before. Sure, there are those who now desire Magiswords, but not to the same degree as the Warriors.
      • After evaluating them for class at Elysium, Byleth was startled at their Fs across the board except for Swords (F+), Brawling (E+), Reason (C), and Faith (E). Given Es are lowest rank one can get in Byleth's class, it really says something about their ineptitude at non-Magisword matters. The Fódlan professor has since become dedicated to making sure that these two become the best Warriors they can actually be.
    • Eventually, they decided they would send a majority of their Magiswords to the Treasury to keep them out of everybody's hands. They still have plenty in their pouches for any situation.
    • They are aware of the Narrator when he does his thing to them, and find him less fun, less energetic, and more obnoxious than the one they're used to. That said, he sometimes actually knows what Magisword is best to use, so they do listen to him sometimes.
    • It was a surprise for them to learn that dragons outside of Lyvsheria aren't lethally hydrophobic, and that some are even aquatic by nature.
    • During one mission, the Warriors had a run-in with Lina Inverse, who had a weird sense of deja vu upon seeing them. To her, Prohyas looked a bit like her companion Gourry, and a little bit of Vambre's outfit mirrored her own (and was jealous of her bust size), though she'd say it was more in line with Celes Chere.
    • During an emergency planning session, they perform a Warrior Huddle, though other folks tend to somehow "sneak in" several times.
    • Ever since their numerous shenanigans at the Dino Kingdom in Lyvsheria, just in case, the Warriors are in the banlist for the Great Valley. The Gang of Seven themselves don't have too much problems with the Warriors themselves, though.
      • As for other dinosaurs, Rexie and the Raptor Pack behave as they usually would, Sharptooth would just try to eat them, and Indominus Rex and the Indoraptor would give them a bloody thrashing and gnashing when they can.
    • With the events of "Grup Jam", the Warriors got acquainted with the Looney Tunes and Michael Jordan, since they essentially followed the same story beats as Space Jam. It also surprised them that "basketball" is actually a thing.
    • Memory modifiers, especially those who do so with reckless abandon, are a sore spot for them, given Nohyas had been doing that to them for years before Prohyas claimed the Selective Memory Magisword from him. It sits in the Treasury with the other Magiswords.
    • One day, a "cop" by the name of Tohru Adachi tipped off the Warriors of sighting Nohyas somewhere in a place called the TV World. He also told them that the way in can only be opened by "special kinds of people", and that their friend Fighter McWarrior is one of them. Not wanting to have to handle the likes of Nohyas in the Pantheon, the Warriors immediately got to action.
      • With Fighter opening the way, the Warriors entered the TV World and—after crossing the gallery and entering the portal ahead—the trio entered a dungeon and battled Shadows as they traversed deeper. Eventually, they reached the heart of it, and awaiting them was not Nohyas, but doubles of themselves with yellow eyes. Notably, while Shadow Prohyas sounded like a distortion of himself, Shadow Vambre instead sounded like her Brain. In fact, it seems that in the TV World, Vambre's Brain left her and took over her Shadow for this confrontation. With everything they've been through, the Shadow Warriors had plenty of crap to say about their counterparts, like each other's resentment for their sibling's occasional insensitivity to their feelings during traumatic incidents (usually Prohyas to Vambre), incidents where one of them never took responsibility for something, stupid decisions that led to various disasters, and all other mishaps throughout their adventures.
      • Having gotten an "anonymous tip" about the Warrior siblings' adventure, the Investigation Team were hot on their tails, but only arrived just in time to hear the Warriors deny their Shadows, which shortly went berserk and caused the siblings to faint. They were quick to assist Fighter in battling the Shadows, who proved surprisingly difficult as their skills reflected what their Magiswords had, and they had a lot. After suffering a devastating Super Teamwork Combo (which incapacitated Fighter), the Team tried separating the Shadows, but it proved difficult until a fluke got the Shadow Warriors arguing, something they've only sort of heard of in AU scenariosnote . After that, it was smooth sailing, and the Warriors were shortly revived and were given a serious quick 101 on Shadows.
      • Once that was hammered into them properly, the Warriors settled matters with their Shadows, and got Persona cards out of the whole deal. After telling the Investigation Team who led them into the TV World instead the first place, the octet swore they were gonna have words with him once they were out, and so did the Warriors.
    • Speaking of that Selective Memory Magisword incident, one of Nohyas's fabrications sounded familiar to someone, and they eventually encountered Prince Adam a.k.a. He-Man.
    • When they thought they heard Hoppus's old friend Danelda, they checked it out, only to find Amethyst. After mentioning who she was, the Crystal Gem decided to shapeshift into a toon rabbit for laughs.
    • In the event that a giant monster threat is around and none of the usual Humongous Mecha or Kaiju heroes are around (or are in need of some assistance), the Warriors can pitch in via the Legendary Swordmecha Magisword. Once a day, it can transform into a giant robot that the wielders can pilot from inside (complete with Super Sentai suits), and can use powers from their other Magiswords via special ports (which can also accept barrels of broccoli soup, and presumably other materials, but neither Warrior is considering it). This earned the Warriors an honorary spot in the GUAG Robot War Division.
    • Ever since having had to go to Galacton to rescue a friend from being legally hunted, the Warriors despise all forms of obsctructive bureaucracy, especially waiting lines with numbers, and especially when they become outright non-sensical such as going past hexadecimals, going into decimal numbers, or using non-numbers.
    • Every 25th day of a certain month (most probably not December), the Warriors celebrate a holiday called Sphinxmas, a desert-themed Christmas-esque holiday. During Sphinxmas, they take a day off from adventuring and return to Lyvsheria to the Barren Faceland, acquire the Flying Sphinx Magisword, and summon the majestic Spifficus the Sphinx. And despite the ridiculousness of it, the holiday is real.
    • Have quite the terrible manners in the last royal party they've been to (in Rhyboflaven Castle), but it turns out Princess Zange had been counting on that (as an excuse for renovating in response to the destruction they might cause). Just like the first Grand Galloping Gala the Mane Six attended ended up being a mess that Princess Celestia had no problems with.

    • To keep his Stomach from rebelling, taking over his body, and going on a rampage for healthy foods, strict diet regiments were enforced on Prohyas to ensure this doesn't lead him to munching on food that doesn't belong to him, or any sentient vegetables. And nobody wants to see him go after DK's Banana Hoard; Knuckles already paid the price for it once with his life. And that means having his share of veggies alongside his usual junk food.
    • Is prone to talking in his sleep. Every time he does so, it implies a dream revolving around a "unicorn court", seemingly acting as a lawyer.
    • During long journeys, Prohyas would often play his Accordion Magisword. It can generate melodies by tapping into the brain of its wielder, and he's pretty decent in making songs with it.
      • This got the attention of "Weird Al" Yankovic, who's also known to play the accordion. The musician occasionally gets him to join in a duet.
    • Dislikes rabid fangirls ever since Glori came to their lives. Especially those who beg to be rescued by the Warriors and get themselves in danger just to make it happen; there are far better rescuers who would do the job sooner and better.
    • Ever since the disaster with the Carnivorous Plant Magisword, not only does Prohyas not like sentient evil weapons, but also especially carnivorous plants such asAudrey II. That said, he's since managed to tame his Carnivorous Plant Magisword thanks to advice from his mother.
    • Is often sleeveless no matter what shirt he wears, mainly due to his arm muscles destroying the sleeves of whatever shirt he puts on, or so he claims, given that he's worn fencing gear without issue.
    • Ever since the incident with Rhyboflavin's Board of Opinions, Prohyas has been banned from using message boards for his own sanity, even if he has since gotten over it by the end. That said, he often gets troll text messages from the Trollkaiger and, less often, the Itazura Griefers (under anonymous numbers, of course).
    • In addition to Dophin Magisword being his favorite, Prohyas likes all dolphins to the point of attending a convention themed on them. He absolutely
    • It is a well-accepted fact that he can fix his hairdo just by blowing on his thumb. Unless it's fully shaved off, as discovered when Vambre resorted to that in order to combat his Acquired Situational Narcissism, in which case a lot more effort is required.
    • One time, Prohyas took a bet with somebody that he can go for an entire day without whining, with a very rare Magisword as a reward. Naturally, the Itazura Griefers caught wind of this and spent all day trying to rile him up and took fun in seeing him try to contain himself. However, just as they thought they managed to reach his breaking point, instead of vocally exploding, he entered a sort of zen state of mind called Office Job Prohyas, who is immune to all forms of annoyance, which eventually made the Griefers give up and leave. However, once he reverted to his default state after a while, the Trollkaiger (one of whom made the bet with Prohyas in the first place) then stepped in to do their thing… and got treated to the worst whine they've ever heard, and were shortly subject to a multi-Magisword rampage by him, even doing Super Teamwork Combos solo.
    • Ever since the time he wanted to ride a goat, upon seeing the Goat, Vambre was very quick to stop her brother from even considering the idea of riding that mammal, given how much mayhem she causes on a regular basis, especially when she's working with the Goose. Vambre and several others have joined in their diligence to keep him away.
    • Ever since he got dunked multiple times at a dunking booth for a fair, he's developed a phobia of getting dunked (and hasn't fully recovered by the end of the episode he developed it), and when he heard some offhand mention of what Sans does to punish evildoers he feels like punishing, he's elected to avoid the short skeleton by all means possible.

    • Having had her Brain suffer literal Ear Worms once, she understands Anger's frustration with them.
    • One very easy way to cheese off Vambre (and get her after you) is to write a Veronica Victorious fanfic and pass it off as an official work. The Trollkaiger (and, less often, Itazura Griefers) have field days writing trashy novels for her to see.
    • Has a tendency to make puns, but only when it's hers. Papyrus gets annoyed whenever he hears one, and she's among those he would rather not stick around.
    • Has a pathological aversion to pants, to the point of extreme violence when forced to wear trousers of any kind, citing a restriction of mobility, chafing on her legs, and going aginst her style. Diving Suits generated by the Diving Suit Magisword are an exception, though, and so might other full but not tight suits.
    • Due to her a traumatic incident with a scurry of squirrels back in her childhood, on top of fearing them, she also opposes all deities pertaining to squirrels such as Squirrel Girl and Ratatoskr. As for Makoto Nanaya, who merely has a giant squirrel tail and matching ears, she's just unbearably nervous, and can be calm enough to hold a conversation with her if Prohyas is around.
    • Occasionally fancies herself as an ace detective whenever she feels like there's a mystery to be solved. Prohyas can attest that this is not the case, as she tends to look at mostly irrelevant stuff, and can be aggressive in negotiations (expecially if they're the wrong guy).
    • Due to her experiences in a special dungeon with checkpoints, as well as possessing a necklace that retains her memory after respawn, Vambre can understand what it's like to be stuck in a time loop. And because Death Is Cheap in the Pantheon, Prohyas can now almost experience the same thing.
    • Used to be unable to admit to her admiration for Piggy Pie Jones (a stage show for kids), but is now able to.
    • Avoids or goes wild against Facilier (with Prohyas) like he's a plague on society ever since getting accidentally turned into a frog (by a friend, but still). In turn, Tiana and Naveen can understand how that's like, though they do see that Vambre had it worse in that she couldn't even talk.
  • "Welcome to Warriors for Hire, where your issue is our mission!"

    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)
  • 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 gets shades of 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: Velvet Crowe
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork With: Roman Torchwick, Akame
  • Rivals: Hakumen, Esdeath, Samuel Rodrigues, Vergil
  • Enemies:
  • Opposed by: Yang Xiao Long (Her Daughter), Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, Ragna, Ryuko Matoi and Senketsu, Satsuki Kiryuin, Pearl (Steven Universe), Nine the Phantom
  • Pities: Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader
  • Feared by: Neopolitan, 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."

    Sasaki Kojirou 
Sasaki Kojirou, God of Simultaneous Blade Strikes (Assassin, Nameless Samurai, Regend, Saviour of France, Saber)
  • Theme Song: "Fictional Heroic Spirit", Tempest Knight
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Nodachi or the Ryuudouji Temple
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil (At least, that's what his profile states about him. He's more in line of True Neutral.)
  • Portfolio: Anti-Villain, Blood Knight, Badass Normal, Face Death with Dignity, Having immense power at the cost of defense, Friendly Enemy, Master Swordsman, Spirited Competitor, Handsome Lech
  • Domain: Combat, Weapons
  • Allies: Karna, Jin Kisaragi, Hakuman, Aikuro Mikisugi
  • Enemies: Medea, Zouken Matou, Kagenaru Mono
    • Forbidden from: The house of Dragons
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Ornstein and Smough
  • Rivals: Sam Rodriguez, Kamui Tokinomiya, Afro Samurai
  • Worthy Opponents: Artoria Pendragon, Miyamoto Musashi, Samurai Jack, Goku, Ryu, Ken, The Chosen Undead, Bearer of the Curse, Ashen One.
  • Tsubame Gaeshi, a sword technique that has the ability to twist dimensions so that Kojiro is able to strike from three directions at the same time. How was he able to achieved such a feat? By swinging his sword, a lot. A lot a lot. He swung it so much that reality just gave up and granted him the ability thanks to the Second Magic. At one point in the mortal realm, while Assassin practiced this technique, he refined it so much that at one point, he created a opening to a parallel universe that was so big, he got sucked right into it. Eventually, he ended up into the Trope Pantheons where after impressing some deties with Tsubame-Gaeshi, he was given the title of Simultaneous Blade Strikes.
  • It should be noted that Sasaki Kojiro isn't really his real name because in the world he comes from, the name itself is fictional and was created to act as a Worthy Opponent for Miyamoto Musashi. He is just a nameless samurai who's skill was the closes to what Sasaki Kojiro would be. Because of this, it's ok with others calling him just Assassin. Of course, this status has been debated after the real Sasaki Kojirou was found in Shimosa who happened to be a Saber and challenged Musashi to a Duel to the Death.
  • Asked the House of Craft to remodel his temple after the Ryuudouji Temple. Why the they didn't mind, they did ask why. Assassin response was that he has a affection for the place. In fact, he can sometimes be seen in the Pantheon riding a Deketora with the temple attached to it.
  • Seems to be very eager in battling one the dragon deities in the Pantheon thanks to his days during the Grand Order Holy Grail War in Orleans, France. When asked why, Assassin said this:
    • Because of this, he managed to found a group of Dragonslayers named the Dragon-Defeating Trio with Saint Martha and Saint George. While he did initially seek a duel with Tarasque, but relented upon learning from Martha about how it was able to withstand multiple of her punches, and that didn't even stop him from forming the group. It's unknown why Siegfried wasn't invited over there though.
    • Later members of the group included the Dovahkiin, and while he wasn't interested at first, after hearing stories of him absorbing dragon souls, he still wasn't interested... Until he heard stories of using a forbidden technique on Fortify Restoration potions to attain enough power to rival borderline Overdeities, which caused him to be stunned at how he managed to obtain such power.
    • Link also was associated with the group due to being involved in slaying demonic dragons in various points of his own timeline.
    • That being said, he does draw the line at killing dragons for fun, such as when Ornstein and Smough clearly expressing their hatred against dragons, especially when he learned that Gwyn, along with the Bearers of the Lord Souls committed a genocide against the Ancient Dragons to advance their Age of Fire.
    • And speaking of Dragons, he, along with his group, is also forbidden from the House of Dragons for obvious reasons. Sasaki could sigh a bit at how his reputation can mislead others.
  • Even though he is classified as Neutral Evil, he doesn't act the part. In fact, his alignment might be a self-stated one.
    If you kill someone, no matter who you are, you are evil.
  • Being a swordsman who loves a challenge, he got to meet many people who share his challenge-seeking philosophy. While some became his rivals because of this, others became close friends with him, and even some saw him as a worthy sparring opponent. Case in point;
    • He became allies with Karna because they were summoned by evil masters (though in Karna's case, he was summoned by a more benevolent villain) and that they also had a climatic final battle.
    • While he had odd looks at Jin Kisaragi for his jackassery at first, he then learned about how he developed into a nice, but still mean character, which caught his interest. Ditto for Hakumen, who happened to be Jin's future self, which has made him interested for a proper duel against them.
    • Due to all of them being Challenge Seekers, he has earned 2 sparring opponents named Ryu and Ken, and while he did grew wary at first due to their violent sides, Ryu at least assured him, given that he managed to expel his evil side. Unfortunately, this also resulted in Sasaki targeting Kagenaru Mono, given that he was Evil Ryu given physical form.
    • He is currently preparing for a proper duel with Artoria Pendragon, given that he is no longer under the orders of Medea and is able to have access to his Saber Self, which once fought Musashi to a Duel to the Death.
  • Due to the... interesting way he was used as a summoning catalyst for Hassan of the Cursed Arm in the 5th Holy Grail War, he gets sore whenever someone mentions Zouken Matou.
  • He has been hearing about people or even creatures trying to copy the Tsubame Gaeshi. However, most of them seem to copy the "swallow tail" version of the technique.
  • His weapon of choice, the Washing Pole, is HUGE even by the standards of an average length of a Katana, having a length of at least 90 cm, only surpassed by Sephiroth's Masamune which is about 243 cm at best. That being said, it has also been found in the time-convoluted realms of Lordran, Drangleic, and Lothric. That said, he was a little less than amused to learned that most of them prefer to run straight forward with and attack with the tip rather than even bothering to use the Tsubame-Gaeshi, which is understandable given that said technique is hard to master.
  • "The war gods heard my prayers. You underestimated me."
