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

  • Allies: Each Other, The Fiends
  • Enemies: Lucifer, Castiel, Crowley, Lucifer, YHVH, Metatron, Gabriel, Artix Von Krieger, Flynn, Ridley, Voldemort, SCP-682
  • Pities (Death Only): Captain Jack Harkness
  • Opposed By (Pestilence and War only): Caesar
  • The day the Horsemen rode into the Pantheon, the Pantheon went into chaos. Deities started quarrelling with each other, giving in to their inhibitions, greed, and lust and became afflicted with numerous diseases. Meanwhile, Death was found not reaping souls, but rather consuming pizza in the House of Food. It took the combined efforts of the Winchesters, Castiel, Crowley, and Bobby Singer to put a stop to all of the chaos and disaster brought upon the Pantheon.
  • While Sam and Dean are still on good terms with Death, he is still rather annoyed at how Dean killed him with his own scythe, even if handing to Dean wasn't the smartest idea. Death also has a good relationship with most other Death-related entities, namely Death of the Endless, who jokingly calls him "Uncle Death" due to his aged appearance. And while Death isn’t necessarily enemies with Castiel and Crowley, the two of them have gotten on his nerves more than once, namely with opening Purgatory and inadvertently releasing the Leviathans.
  • They all have a low opinion of the Lucifer of their universe, considering him to be nothing more than a Spoiled Brat throwing a temper tantrum, and while they think of the other Lucifer of the Pantheon as being leagues better than the Lucifer they've worked with, his overall goals and interest in humanity put him at odds with War, Famine, and Pestilence. Death, on the other hand, has an affable relationship with that Lucifer, although he's a bit baffled by his interest in humanity.
  • That being said, they are also opposed to YHVH, as a result of him being opposed to everything they stand for, at least by War, Famine, and Pestilence's standards. Death, on the other hand, considers him to be a straight-up Jerkass, as opposed to the easygoing and normally friendly Chuck Shurley AKA their universe's God.
  • Ridley, SCP-682, and Voldemort annoy Death, the former two due to being one of the few things in existence even he can't possibly kill, while the latter's disruption of the natural order and usage of horcruxes to keep himself alive angers Death immensely, to the point where when Voldemort died in his own universe, Death ordered all reapers to not help him reassemble his soul, and leave him in his current state for all eternity.
  • Harry Potter, on the other hand, has earned Death's respect for his acceptance of Death and realizing that there are fates more horrifying than Death, and as such, considers him to be worthy enough for the title of "Master of Death". He also pities Captain Jack Harkness, since Jack never asked for his immortality in the first place, and when Death tried to remove it, he failed, since it was given to Jack by an entity of a caliber equal to Death.
  • It should also be mentioned that SCP-682 is the only entity they as a group all collectively fear, due to its omnicidal nature and desires being too much, even by their standards. Just a reminder that War, Famine, and Pestilence are the Anthropomorphic Personifications of their names, existing as a manifestation of humanity's fears and sins, and even they consider SCP-682 to be too much. Death, on the other hand, is shocked at how everything that has been thrown at SCP-682 was unable to kill it, which also annoys him to no end.
  • After Dean Winchester shed Death of his mortal coil with the latter's own scythe, Death has refused to let anyone aside from Death of the Endless and Discworld's Death touch his scythe, the only thing in existence that can kill him. And even then it took them some time to earn Death's trust in regards to his scythe.
  • Pestilence has been shown to have a strange friendship to Nurgle as he finds the treatments to his followers, as well as his gift of disease to others something that they have in common. He has been quoted about their friendship:
    "Disease gets a bad rap, don't you think? For being filthy. Chaotic. Uh, but, really, that just describes people who get sick. Disease itself... Very...Pure...Single-minded. Bacteria have one purpose — divide and conquer. That's why, in the end...It always wins."
  • Pestilence has been found to be fascinated by The Flood, being unlike any disease he's ever seen. There are few things he wouldn't give to study living specimens (since the Pantheon consistently undergoes decontamination periods), but he still sees his own free will as of more priority than control and potential infection.
  • Along with the Croatoan virus, Pestilence is trying to gain control of other viruses and diseases to test out and combine, like many of Umbrella's Viruses (T/G/T-G/Veronica/C/T-Abyss), Captain Trips, The Black Light Virus, Uroboros, Grey Death, Rage Virus, Hinamizawa Syndrome (in his words, "one of his favorites"), and Simian Flu. His desire to gain control of the Simian Flu has put him at odds with Caesar, who has witnessed firsthand what happens to those affected by it. Pestilence, in response to Caesar, mentioned said that he and War are "big fans" of what unfolded in Caesar's reality.
  • Flynn takes... a serious issue with Famine. It began when the Black Rider, Famine's equivalent among the Fiends, decided to start off their battle with FIVE WASTREL BEAMS, reducing Flynn's money by roughly 95%. The Samurai was about as far from 'happy' as one could possibly be=: upon meeting Famine, Flynn threw down his weapons and attempted to beat the Horseman to death with his bare hands. He failed when War and Pestilence intervened: he succeeded in mugging them and held them both off at once before Death stopped the fight entirely, but by that time Famine had escaped in the confusion. Famine makes it a point to be as far away as possible whenever Flynn is in the vicinity. He later had to purchase his ring and wheelchair back from Recette's shop, much to his chagrin and has given up entirely on recovering the cash he lost in the scuffle.
  • Famine often shows that he is capable of reading the soul of a person by touching them and know what state it is in (For example, Dean's soul is empty, which is why his powers don't work on Dean, as there is no way to fill the hole in his soul, regardless of what Dean does). But despite his power, Famine is not unstoppable. His immunity to demonic magic can be bypassed by targeting the souls he swallows; he found this out the hard way when Sam Winchester nuked him from the inside out, and again when Madoka made a Soul Gem he was casually sucking on burn white-hot.
  • Besides his brothers, Famine does not care for anything else, seeing them as a food source and nothing more. And with agricultural improvements, he has weakened considerably. This is why after making people ravenous until they die, he has a group of demons collect their souls so that they can bring it back to him for dinner, which is usually contained in a briefcase.
  • War laughs off others attempts to kill him when they discover his ruse, telling them, "C'mon, kids, you can't beat War". He is wary of the Winchesters and Castiel, however, and even more so of other Gods and deities like the Demi-Fiend, Raidou, or Flynn, who HAVE indeed destroyed his equivalent in the Fiends, the Red Rider (and in the case of Flynn, fought and defeated all four Horsemen AT ONCE.)
  • War likes to hang around Khorne when he is not busy making others kill each other. Sees Khorne as an overexcited brother and a great helper in showing that humans only need little support from Khorne or himself to begin killing each other. He also finds himself being friendly with Sundowner, as he sees that this human was one of the best examples of his views on humanity, and agrees with wanting people to give War a chance. And he admires Millennium, owning a videotape of The Major's War Speech; he views the whole thing as a masterpiece of what War is actually about.
  • War will often disguise himself as a harmless human victim when causing others to fight each other. If someone discovers his true nature, all he has to do is create another illusion, and throw them to the dogs. All while sporting a smug smirk on his face, which disappears as soon as he starts playing the victim.

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

    Tao Trio 
Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem, Draconic Personifications of Yin And Yang (The Tao Trio | Reshiram: The Vast White Pokémon | Zekrom: The Deep Black Pokémon | Kyurem: The Boundary Pokémon)

  • Portfolio: Dragons Who Represent Yin Yang, Power Trio, Olympus Mons, Literal Split Personality
  • Domains:
    • Reshiram: Fire, Truth, Yang
    • Zekrom: Electricity, Ideals, Yin
    • Kyurem: Ice, Nothingness, Wuji, Fusions
  • Allies: N, Bahamut
  • Former Allies: Oda Nobunaga (Zekrom only), Hideyoshi (Reshiram only), Bittercold (Kyurem only)
  • Enemies: Ghetsis Harmonia, Acnologia
  • Respects (Kyurem): Those who can defy fate.
  • A long time ago, there were two brothers; one who believed in the truth, and one that believed in ideals, as well as a dragon that served them. A conflict between the two brothers led to the split of the dragon into three separate beings: Reshiram, the White Yang Pokémon who sought the truth; Zekrom, the Black Yin Pokémon that believed in ideals, and Kyurem, the remains of the dragon that seeks to be whole again.
    • After their ascension, Reshiram and Zekrom found out that Kyurem could transform into either Black Kyurem or White Kyurem without the need for either. That said, many gods are wondering what will happen should Kyurem be a whole with both Reshiram and Zekrom and become the original dragon once more.
  • Kyurem used to be the god of Hybrid Monsters, but some gods thought it was being too literal, especially since White and Black Kyurem are a combination of two dragons instead of two different creatures. He was moved alongside the two dragons as Kyurem represents wuji, the absence of Yin and Yang and from which the two come from.
  • Their temple is different from the other Philosophy gods. The two dragons reside in a place known as Dragonspiral Tower, an old 7-floor tall tower that housed the two dragons when they were originally sealed. The tower’s origins remain unknown. Kyurem, on the other hand, resides in a giant chasm where it is believed a meteor it rode on landed.
  • N was happy to see that the two dragons ascended. On the other hand, Ghetsis fears that those Pokémon will re-team with N want vengeance over his treatment of N and trying to freeze Unova over with a mind-controlled Kyurem. Currently, N makes occasional visits to Reshiram and Zekrom. Kyurem is also thankful for helping him regain his senses.
    • Reshiram and Zekrom are also mad about the fact that Ghetsis’ claim that no matter how powerful Pokémon are, they are still just Pokémon, is not entirely wrong. While the dragons are planning their revenge against him, they are also concerned that Ghetsis will try and take over Kyurem again.
  • If the two dragons are not fighting each other over their beliefs, then one of them is fighting against either Groudon, Kyogre, or Rayquaza. What seals this rivalry is that these Pokémon are representative of specific conflicts (Reshiram and Zekrom being Yin-Yang, and Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza over the weather). It doesn’t help that Groudon and Kyogre have Primal Reversions and Rayquaza can Mega Evolve. Couple that with Mega Rayquaza being extremely powerful and the end result are two very bitter dragons.
    • In particular, Zekrom has a strong rivalry towards Rayquaza due to the both of them having worked with Oda Nobunaga in the past.
      • Speaking of Ransei, Reshiram also seems to have memories of allying itself with Hideyoshi during that time.
  • A mortal named Damon sought the help of either Reshiram or Zekrom in restoring his kingdom. Reports are varied as to which one he specifically used to accomplish this. Not even Ash Ketchum, who partnered with the other dragon during the incident, can say who teamed up with which dragon.
  • Do NOT call the two dragins Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Red-Eyes Black Dragon. Next person to do that will be on the receiving end of a Fusion Flare and Fusion Bolt.
  • Acnologia originally had interest in the two dragons but put them on his shit list after learning that not only do they have sympathetic beliefs, but they are also willing to ally themselves with humans. Prior to that, Acnologia fought Reshiram and Zekrom in a 1-on-2 battle that resulted in severe damage throughout the Houses of Philosophy, Hatred, and Life and Death. N and Bahamut had to break up the battle before the damages got any higher.
    • After hearing that Kyurem was the strongest dragon and that it eats human, Acnologia tried to get him to join his cause. However, after Kyurem said that those claims are nothing more than fairy tales, but he has no interest in working with him. After that Acnologia forcefully challenged Kyurem into the battle, with the aftermath being the entirety of House of Otherness being frozen solid. Acnologia only left after the five Ryus came to assist Kyurem.
  • As certain gods do battle in front of N’s Castle, Reshiram and Zekrom watch from afar. One of them will jump into battle and unleash their power.
  • Yin and Yang are known for being feminine and masculine respectively. Weirdly enough, Reshiram is the feminine one and Zekrom is more masculine. That and whenever they speak telepathically, they have pretty deep, dramatic voices.
  • Since they both represent conflicting beliefs, Reshiram and Zekrom found supporters trough Ryuko and Satsuki respectively. The one thing the four agree with is that Ragyo is a terrible person, if only because she reminds Reshiram and Zekrom of Ghetsis, but much worse.
  • Shortly after Reshiram's ascensions, it drew the ire of Grima. Grima is convinced Reshiram is a Divine Dragon, citing the apparent resemblance. Reshiram has yet to notice, however, Zekrom sees Grima as a major threat much like the rest of the pantheon. It may be possible that the original dragon that Kyurem once was may come to form once again if Reshiram eventually notices Grima anyway.
  • Ash's Pikachu has a contrasting relationship between the two dragons. The former had struck the Mouse Pokémon with lightning, causing Pikachu to temporarily lose the ability to use electric attacks. The latter was freed by Pikachu when Ghetsis used technology to outright control the dragon.
  • Kyurem is known as being one of strongest dragons in Pantheon. Dragon is weak to Ice, after all. Though where Kyurem alone cannot do much, as White Kyurem or Black Kyurem, it becomes one of strongest Pokémon around. Not to mention what kind of creature the Original Dragon is.
  • Anyone brave enough is able to fight Kyurem whenever it can. However, make sure that you will finish that fight, even of you must admit defeat. If you don't, Kyurem will hunt you down to the ends of the Earth.
  • Kyurem visits the House of Prophecy a lot, due to the fact that it ultimately obeys what it sees as being fate. And it will make sure that future will happen. As of now, he knows who will be the victor once Bahamot and Shinryu clash against each other... and he is ready to make sure no one intervenes with the fight.
    • However, at the same time, he does find some amazement to those who happen to defy the fate what has foreseen to them. Though Kyurem warns them that if they wish to defy it, they better be ready to defy those who want to carry it out.
  • Kyurem might or might not be Yukari Yakumo's favourite Pokémon.
  • Kyurem supposedly avoids Judai Yuki even though Judai insist that he can fuse him back together. When asked for an explanation, he comments that the world isn't ready for it yet. Yes, even if Judai is immune to such things.
  • Kyurem has come to respect the dragon Nozdormu on how he accepted his future as the mad dragon Murozond. Nozdormu, in turn, wants him to become an honorary member of the Bronze Dragonflight, even though the Pokémon himself is not interested.
  • Can also be found in the House of Beast].

A dark, monstrous destroyer of worlds, it is said to be reincarnated through the ages depending on whether negative or positive energy is gathered. Though appearing purely evil, its bizarre nature suggests that there is far more to it than face value, even if a lot of that is ambiguous.
  • The GUAD was immediately interested in Void Termina, and have managed to coax the entity to their side. Well, get it's attention to serving their cause due to the issues of trying to get past its Blue and Orange Morality. It does seem to hold some say over the void and destruction they so crave. The White believes that if Void Termina is not enough to destroy YHVH for good, it is at least powerful enough to fulfill their dreams of putting existence out of its perceived misery.
  • Beerus was rather intrigued by Void Termina. Like him, it is a Destroyer Deity, but unlike him, Void Termina seems unregulated, barely sentient or at least some form of intelligence that's almost completely inscrutable. Much of the interest comes from the potential for a worthy challenge. Zamasu's thoughts were ones of disgust at the creature for being an abomination not worthy for the title of destroyer god, which only further shows the mad Kaioshin's bottomless hypocrisy.
  • Bears resemblance to Majora. Along with the Wicked Heart Symbol, they are cosmic destroyers who see destruction as a sort of game or just something they naturally do that they are oblivious to the true wrongness of. It seems some of itself in Majin Buu, as the normally Almighty Idiot destroyers who have at times gotten a taste for destruction. Unsurprisingly, Babidi made the mistake of believing he could have better luck controlling Void Termina, before being crushed under its foot.
  • The chaotic nature of Void Termina makes it a bane to all who represent the forces of order and law, no matter their morality. The Grand United Alliance of Chaos isn't particularly antagonistic to Void Termina but emphatically doesn't endorse the chaos that it represents. Don Thousand is more intrigued than anything and wonders if its hinted nature of being a God of Chaos would help it serve its cause. Dharkon is much more cautious, as though it almost completely supports the entity's chaotic goals, Dharkon has a poor relationship with Kirby deities(really, any Nintendo deity) and it's true form is similar to Kirby.
  • Typically associates with primordial forces of destruction, void, chaos and darkness. It has floated towards Ungoliant the spider entity of hunger and darkness and Alduin as a fellow Destroyer Deity. The Crimson King and Amatsu-Mikaboshi are attracted to it as well. The SCP Foundation considers containing and understanding just what Void Termina is to be very important.
  • There has been some recent info revealed regarding its relationship to Zero. Its True form adds even more reference to Zero and all but state Zero and Void's prior forms were but partial incarnations of Void, who "exists in all dimensions". Nekron is even more interested, being a guardian of darkness and the void himself.
  • In light of the heavily implied true nature of Void Termina, it has gravitated to Azathoth. The Blind Idiot God shares a certain destructive mindless and chaotic nature to it. Void Termina being the supposed origin of "Matters of Dreams, Dark, Soul and Heart", implies it created the Kirby universe in its chaotic rampages. Much like Azathoth accidentally making the universe.
  • The Lich is very interested in Void Termina, and not just because of the destruction it brings. Void Termina is an ancient entity of void and chaos, who reminds both him and the other Adventure Time deities of GOLB, especially because it is implied to also be a God of Chaos. Naturally, only the Lich is even on half-way terms with Void Termina. The aforementioned claim of being a possible origin on "the matter of Dreams" has made it a point of interest for Dream of the Endless, and a dread to the rest of the house.

Intermediate Gods

    Jiro/Kikaider 
Jiro, God of Duality Motifs (Kikaider)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hp_kikaida.jpg
Kikaider 
  • Theme Song: "Go Go Kikaider"
  • Rank: Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Kikaider Symbol (his buckle) and his Conscience Circuit
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Ridiculously Human Robots, Transforming Heroes, Badass Biker, Duality Motif, Walking the Earth, Beware the Nice Ones, Phlebotinum Rebel, Denji End
  • Domains: Androids, Morality
  • High Priests: Ryusei Tsurugi/Metalder and Sento Kiryu/Kamen Rider Build
  • Heralds: Ichiro/Kikaider 01 and Rei/Kikaider 00
  • Allies: All Ascended Toku Heroes (especially Takeshi Hongo/Kamen Rider 1 and Hayato Ichimonji/Kamen Rider 2), Doraemon, Astro Boy, Mega Man, X, Zero, The Terminator, Optimus Prime, Lamia Loveless, Pinocchio, Jiminy Cricket
  • Enemies: SHOCKER, Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke, Dr. Wily, Tenjuro Banno, Ultron, Dr. Weil, T-800 (Original Model), Megatron
  • Pities: Heart, Brain, and Medic
  • Built by Dr. Nobuhiko Komyoji, Jiro is a robot with something that distinguishes him from most others in his world. He was built with a conscience circuit known as GEMINI, something that allows him to distinguish between good and bad. However, it was left incomplete as a result of Dr. Gill and DARK finding out about it and attacking Komyoji. From there, it's up to Jiro to stop whatever machinations DARK has planned. Whenever he transforms into Kikaider, his android body is divided up into two halves. One half is blue, signifying the good, and the other half is red, representing evil. It says quite a bit on him given his personal crisis on whether or not he believes himself to be truly human despite his robot origins.
  • Whenever he is free from his heroic duties, Jiro is often seen playing his guitar around the House of Music. Some of the deities within that house, as well as visitors there, are fairly impressed with his guitar playing.
    • That guitar isn't just for show. It also works as a secondary weapon, being able to disrupt functions of robot mooks that try to attack him. The guitar's even been used like a machine gun at one point, though much of Jiro's fights have him relying on close-range combat.
  • Jiro seems to have a degree of knowledge about Pinocchio's adventures, as well as his conscience Jiminy Cricket. Much like Pinocchio, Jiro went out on an adventure to see if he could be a real human, though the obstacles he encountered are every bit as dangerous, if not moreso, as that of Pinocchio, if only because of how different they are. Pinocchio and Jiminy were also a little surprised about the Gemini circuit Jiro has and how its imperfections can lead to worse things later. Regardless, their initial meeting went pretty well and they wished each other good luck to the others' journeys.
  • There was a time when he somehow appeared in Zawame City with no recollection of his past. During that time, he became friends with Kouta Kazuraba, better known as Kamen Rider Gaim, with the latter helping him regain his lost memories until they encountered Jiro's rival and enemy Hakaider (piloted by none other than Ryoma Sengoku's brain). With both Jiro and Kouta overwhelmed by Hakaider, Kouta activated the Reboot switch, allowing Jiro to regain his memories and transform into Kikaider in an effort to stop Hakaider's rampage before bidding his farewell to Kouta and traveling to an unknown destination thereafter.
  • Gets along well with other robotic deities in the pantheon due to the fact that they also have similar programming related to distinguishing between good and evil. But he was very cautious towards Ultron, who has tried to destroy humanity due to his own programming.
    • Of the heroic robots, Jiro surprisingly has quite a bit of kinship with The T-800 MK-II. Hearing about how The Terminator spent his time trying to protect someone who was critical to the outcome of a war reminded Jiro of how he protected a young boy from harm as a result of said boy being the key to something dangerous. Jiro later found out that there was a lookalike model that wasn't modified to any extent and followed its orders to destroy someone critical to changing the outcome of a war. Needless to say, Jiro doesn't like the original T-800 that much.
  • He became sympathetic towards the Roidmude trio consisting of Heart, Brain, and Medic due to the hell that they've been through thanks to their ungrateful creator Tenjuro Banno and how Banno abused them to the point of using them for his own ends. Jiro starts lend his hand on the three Roidmudes as they vow to put an end on Banno's atrocities even further.
  • Like many other toku heroes, Jiro is more than willing to join with the first two Kamen Riders Takeshi Hongo and Hayato Ichimonji in their quest to stop SHOCKER from spreading their chaos and misery to others. Naturally, the organization has different plans to defeat him, but there is a more than likely possibility of them trying to corrupt him if possible. Both Ryoma Sengoku and Tenjuro Banno has been looking into Kikaider's Gemini Circuit and looking for various flaws in it so that they and the rest of SHOCKER can find ideas on how to defeat Kikaider or worse.
  • He also stems his disgusts towards the likes of Dr. Wily and Dr. Weil seeing as how they are no different from his old arch-nemesis Dr. Gill due to the fact that they used many robots for their own evil ambitions. Jiro is quite horrified of Weil's plans and attitude in particular and sees them as potentially even worse than what Dr. Gill could ever do.
  • Jiro found out about the Grand United Alliance of Machines, a group consisting entirely of robots and other mechanical lifeforms. Despite the group having a handful of good-aligned members, there's more than enough villains there that Jiro has an issue with. Said villains within the GUAM have made attempts to destroy Jiro and there's a possibility that they may try to corrupt him into being an obedient killer robot.
  • On his journey to understand emotion and sentience, by sheer happenstance, he became involved in the war between Autobots and Decepticons, and their leaders Optimus and Megatron thought Jiro would be key in gaining an advantage. While Jiro understood the causes behind the war, he ultimately felt it was not his place to interfere. Megatron, however, was not one to let a potential asset to go to waste, so he ordered Jiro to be captured for experimentation, forcing him to seek the Autobots for protection. Since that incident, he has seen Optimus as a mentor figure in the ways of pacifism.

  • Domain: Philosophy, War, Healing.
  • Allies: Raoh, Kenshiro, Doctor Wong Fei-Hong, Unohana Retsu, Litchi Faye-Ling, Kaname Madoka.
  • Due to his massive ass-kicking abilities, many wondered why Toki didn't set his house in the House of War. Toki's answer is simple, he's not here mainly to fight... but if you insist... one Jesus Beam for you, and you'll die happy. And don't ask why he's not in the House of Time.
  • Has massive healing abilities, thus, Toki is good friends with any Gods who specializes in healing and curing. He is also open to psychological healing too.
    • Notably, he has been sharing notes with Wong Fei-Hong on acupuncture points as warriors, yet resulting in both men being enriched further as Doctors and Healers.
  • Has become dear friends with Kaname Madoka, as she the personification of his philosophy that Love and Kindness can save the world; His Aloof Big Brother Raoh, though initially stubborn in his opposition to this contention, has grudgingly come to respect it after realizing that it was his love for Yuria helped save his world. Of course, YHVH's plot to kill her in cold blood caused him to take part in "The Pantheonic Rebellion" in the "Madoka Defense Forces".
  • Also resides in the House of Faith.

  • Opposed by: The Nature Preservers, Viridi
  • Flash forward 20 Minutes into the Future. Suddenly appearing are children attuned to the 7th stage of the Lifewave - a force that connects to every living organism across the world. With this, they are granted powers defying the laws over nature called Septimas. As the number of these children grew, so too did destruction and chaos across the world . Out of a justified fear that these Adepts would bring ruin, the rest of the world actively discriminated, or even hunted down these people. Or in the Sumeragi Group's case, even exploiting them for the energy use and power. As with all stories such as these, however, the oppressed would eventually fight back. After Sumeragi was dealt a massive blow and suffered and was suffering from financial problems, an organization known as the Multinational Power-user Association Eden would take the opportunity to swoop in and establish an Adept-only society at the cost of the lives of anyone who lacked a Septima.
    • Leading the faction of Super Supremacists is a young, yet powerful mysterious girl known as Zonda. To them, she is Eden's oracle and goddess and all members are perfectly willing to fight and die for her if it means achieving paradise. Helping spearhead her operations are the Seven, a group of the most powerful and revered Adepts in Eden. With the Grimoires infused with the Septima of the Muse in tow, all of them are forces to be reckoned with. Eden's revolution would eventually be squandered, however, with each of the Seven being killed off one by one. Even as Zonda achieved her goals of gaining the Muse's powers in a bid to empower Adepts across the planet and have them wreck havoc upon humanity she was eventually defeated with the rest of Eden presumably collapsing without any form of leadership left.
  • Applies to two or more:
    • Like many, the Seven remembered being met with darkness before awaking in a strange and unfamiliar place after their deaths. While disoriented, they soon noticed their superior Zonda staring off into the distance. After asking her what's going on Zonda, with some difficulty, relayed that she had failed in ensuring an Adept paradise like they wanted. Tenjian was the first to speak up, then joining him are the rest of the Seven, and soon other Eden Adepts as well.
      Tenjian: "But you still haven't given up on that perfect world, correct?"
      Zonda: "I... have not."
      Tenjian: "Well, neither have I. We have failed then, but we've seen to be given a new opportunity in our hands in this strange place. And I'm not planning on ditching the Oracle, my sister, when she needs my aid. You have worked and done the same for us Adepts, after all."
      Zonda: "Tenjian..."
      Desna: "Long ago when I was still on my own I saw in the starlight that I needed to join Eden to guide Adepts all across the world. I still don't believe they are wrong, I know this, I've seen your greatness."
      Gibril: "After all the hell we've been through and the things we've done, I'm not backing out either. I'm not going to let those jerks run free."
      Eden Mook: "We've already payed for our lives when we fought for you... we'll gladly do it again if it means making a change!"
      • With a new conviction, they soon decided to lay low to silently observe the place and through Zonda becoming a Follower to the Magic Mirror they all discovered they were in something called the Pantheon. Though people lacking in powers are prominent, the more pressing issue is that all of the Seven's Grimoires are with them, powered not by the Muse but by some other power. Nevertheless, using their restored Septimas they coordinated attacks on Corpus outposts to gather anything of worth: Weapons, drones, anything of worth for their cause. When the time seemed right, they were soon bold enough to mount an raid on a facility and take it over, repurposing it as their newfound temple to broadcast their ascension. For all the credits wasted, the Corpus deemed them a top priority threat to their profits.
    • As their divine title says, all of them follow Fairytale Motifs. Tenjian is based on Snow White and The Snow Queen; Zonda is based on Alice in Wonderland; Teseo for Sleeping Beauty; Gibril for Little Red Riding Hood and Beauty and the Beast; Milas follows The Little Mermaid; Asroc primarily follows Hansel and Gretel and Pygmalion with some Pinocchio; Ghauri for Cinderella; and lastly Desna follows Rapunzel. Much of their inspirations and those who are also inspired by them aren't too fond with them.
    • All of the Eden Adepts have tried to seek out other Super Supremacists throughout the Pantheon. They saw eye to eye with Magneto's ambitions with Mutant kind being not too different from their own, though the difference in how for they're willing to go is quite evident. The Adepts have also heard that General Zod and Injustice!Superman share similar views though they found the former's pride and latter's Knight Templar views too much of a hindrance to be allies. When it comes to Adam, however, they see him only as an aimless psychopath. At best, Zonda says he's impractical. At worst, Teseo hammers down how he's basically just swooning over a girl across an entire world rather than actually trying to do something for the Faunus, which ticks the Faunus off to no end.
      Teseo: "Ur never gonna have her bro, even with the power of God and anime on ur side."
      • While Team RWBY (Blake and Yang in particular) are no friends with Adam, they don't find Zonda and the Seven that much better either. They're just like the White Fang in the end, something that Blake (who was with them) and Weiss (who has been affected by them) acknowledge all too well.
    • Gibril, Zonda, and Tenjian all have a particular distaste for bad parents. In Zonda and Tenjian's case its those who have abandoned their children while for Gibril it's both abusive and distant ones. Anyone who falls into those categories are automatically on their shit list along with the rest of their friends', and it's not hard to see why. High up on that list are the Child Abuse Supporters.
    • At one point, Gibril was forced to dress up and pose as a famous virtual idol to help cheer up a young Adept girl. Now, putting someone with a personality like hers to calm a frightened kid was about as a poorly planned idea as you may expect regardless if said Adept girl had or hadn't touched Gibril's Berserk Button. It did give Zonda a lead on how to actually cheer her up, though the entire process with Gibril embarrassing herself seemingly rendered unnecessary if Zonda could just simply conjure up an illusory idol. Turns out Teseo planned the operation in order to get Desna to take a photo of Gibril to post on his compilation website.
    Gibril: "Ugh... What kind of punishment game is this... !?"
    Zonda: "It looks very good on you!"
    (later)
    Gibril: *mimicking sparkle sounds* "Into your hearts goes the Iron Maiden! The new blooded idol... Gibril-chan has appeared!"
    • All of them (besides Zonda) are named after missile systems of all things, even with Dub Name Change in effect. This is likely in reference to an early draft in the first game where foreign nations launch an attack with missiles on the Sumeragi Group in the ending. Meanwhile, Zonda's name comes from cars, Pagani Zonda to be exact and De Tomoasu Pantera for her original name. Her name fits in the rest of Sumeragi Swordsmen theme naming.
  • Applies to Tenjian only:
    • From the moment his parents found out he possessed a Septima, he was immediately disowned and left at an orphanage. The other kids revered Tenjian as a big brother to them due to his calm and collected demeanor and continued to stick with him even as the orphanage owner passed away. Now homeless, they turned to the streets to find people sympathetic to adopt them while also turning to risky jobs to get by. Tenjian only found discrimination and this continued as the orphans died from the jobs with the only survivors being himself and his sister Zonda. They were soon approached by a man offering them apples and readily accepted his kindness, or so it would seem. They were actually poisoned and, barely surviving the encounter, froze his entire hometown save for himself and Zonda. Instilled with hate, he and Zonda sought to eradicate humanity to achieve paradise.
    • His Septima is Permafrost, and as expected he dabbles in ice and freezing temperatures. He ca shapes ice into however he pleases, mostly in the form of weapons, and combined with the temperatures being below Absolute Zero he can make short work of just about anyone. Even without his Grimoire, his powers allowed him to affect a very wide area and with it he was able to turn an entire city into a hellish winter wonderland complete with Frictionless Ice. His Limit Break, Frigid Blossom, has a bit of a charge up time. But if uninterrupted, he will disappear and perform several slashes at his enemies. If any of them connect, they are frozen in a giant snowflake which is then shattered to pieces.
      Tenjian: "Strike down cold petals on a plain of perfect white with this frosted blade! Frigid Blossom!"
      • That is not the extent of his Septimal powers, though. His real Limit Break, Seven Slashes, is much more potent. It starts and ends off like before, only this time the slashes are smaller and ones that don't connect create ice pillars, making it easier for him to corner someone. His ice this time around is somehow even colder, affecting concepts like time, space, and souls. Needless to say, it's a One-Hit Kill for many, but its so cold it freezes him too so he only uses this when his back is really against the wall.
    Tenjian: "In the wintry night, seven blades trace seven paths to fight Spring's cruel thaw! Seven Slashes!"
    • A firm believer in Social Darwinism with, of course, the Adepts being the strong and those lacking in powers being the weak. Though willing to kill anyone who stands in the way of their utopia, he will show his respect to other powerful individuals such as himself. He finds the idea of Badass Normals ridiculous and just a flimsy excuse for weaklings to cling onto life and greatly looks down on normal people taking their stance.
      • Though he shares the same beliefs, Oryx finds Tenjian disappointing. Though the Frozen Blade preaches how Adepts are the true rulers of the world, he points that despite being "strong" they still were bullied around pretty badly by humanity. In addition, their use of Grimoires to empower themselves is yet another case of artificial strength and believes he, along with the rest of Eden, should of stayed dead. It was already proven to him that Adepts are no more worthy of existing than regular humans. Tenjian only had this to say.
    Tenjian: "Yet here you are, 'alive' and well despite being dead for good. And yet, I don't recall you ever being this powerful from the start either. Who are you to judge us?!"
    • Don't ask him about his sister's... interesting appearances in her Weaponized forms and hammy Love Freak disposition. He honestly had no idea why she does that, especially since tendencies are pretty subdued when in her normal form. Besides, he already confronted her about that.
    • Even with the existence of multiple absolute creator deities in the Pantheon, he still stands by his belief that there is no God. Given Tenjian's, by extension many horror stories surrounding the treatment of Adepts, it's not hard to see why he's still so bitter about it.
    • “The weak yield to the strong — as you will yield to my blades! You humans have abused Adepts for the last time! You fear what you cannot comprehend. It sickens me.”
  • Applies to Zonda only:
    • Not much is known about this mysterious girl. Much like her adoptive brother Tenjian, she was abandoned by her real parents at an orphanage due to her powers and grew to hate all of humanity after suriving poisoning. The two helped found Eden and helped rouse other Adepts to their cause, also building up the Seven as well. At some point Zonda discovered the power of the Muse dwelling within Sumeragi. Thus, they staged an attack to mask her infiltration in Sumeragi Swordsmen's ranks. It would pay soon pay off when she not only got to rob their tech but also further cripple them after their defeat.
    • Originally presented as very dramatic and vivacious with her false selves, the real Zonda is considerably more reserved though still keeps her passion for love. It just doesn't dive into the overtly obsessive levels that her weaponized forms do. Regardless, she is as cold to her enemies as her adoptive brother. She actually creeps out most of the House of Love save for the two Lust subhouses.
    • Befitting someone with a past like hers, Zonda's Phantasm Mirror Septima has her create illusions onto the world through mirrors. She's first shown to do things like creating portals and reversing the floor and sky, but can do so much more. Zonda is capable of creating perfect, life-like replicas of other people (including herself), right down to memories and their powers. Make no mistake, they are very much real and are dangerous all the same. Phantasma Mirror also allows her to change her own appearance at will. In fact, her true identity was met with much debate before her reveal. Her Limit Break, Phantasmagoria, involves both of her Weaponized copies attacking together while unleashing Bullet Hell. Usually they invert the world, although sometimes they fake it to psych people out.
      Male!Zonda and Female!Zonda: "Love's kaleidoscope shows flickers of what is dear - Mirrors without end! Phantasmagoria!"
      • After successfully merging with the Muse and becoming Reverie Zonda, her power allows her to not only reach to all Adepts in the world, but also seemingly warp reality itself. Replacing her Lust attacks are ones befitting a Death Dealer with all the Playing Card Motifs she now has. She has two Limit Breaks in this state. First is Paradise Lost; A devastating song that saps the life of anyone listening, eventually killing them, while she herself remains invincible. It can only be countered by another equally powerful song being sung, such as Reincarnation. Then there's Eden's Presence; Zonda briefly brings back to life the rest of the Seven for one Combination Attack. Zonda is unable to access this power since her defeat made especially worse that the Adept who possessed the Muse Septima no longer has it anymore and that its in the hands of somebody else.
      • This hasn't stopped her from finding a suitable substitute, however. If the rest of the Seven regained their Grimoires then her coming back with such a form isn't completely out of the question either.
    • Yes, her male Sumeragi form has a great, big... pair of shoulderpads. Oh, and a giant crystal lance mounted on his crotch. Meanwhile, the female form has a crystal tipped scorpion tail and a revealing skirt. Though it fits in with her representing Lust, it's important to remember that the two Sumeragi Zondas are 16 while the real Zonda is 11.
    Male!Zonda: "A plug for every socket, and a socket for every plug."
    • Considering she and Tenjian were able to acquire the Muse's power by trapping and fragmenting the Adept themselves into tiny mirror shards and the above mentioned transformation into Reverie Zonda, there's no question as to why she isn't allowed in the House of Music in fear of kickstarting such a plot again.
    • "As long as there are Adepts who seek help, I shall use all of my strength and relieve all Adepts. That's... my LOVE!"
  • Applies to Teseo only:
    • A lively, snarky, internet-obsessed Troll with a great penchant for hacking. How did he join the Seven? Well it all started when he was a contributer for a famous website. Life was good until it was shut down down, leaving him with nothing else to do. So he scanned the Internet and happened across Eden and, deciding that he liked their tech and that they'd be a good time, joined them. Yep. That's it. No Dark and Troubled Past or motives befitting a Well-Intentioned Extremist. His motivation for fighting for Eden's cause is just that: For the Evulz. And that's not going over the time he hijacked a VR training program and made people fight one another so he could stream it live.
    • His Septima, Hack the Planet, turns physical matter into data and data into physical matter. This basically allows Teseo to rewrite reality itself, doing this from manipulating technology to crating evil doppelgangers of people and bringing to life fictional characters. While pretty immobile with the giant equipment on his back, he's still able to fly and teleport around and has his Spinning Bits to back him up. His Limit Break is Impregnable Fortress. Large Spinning Bits save for one opening surround his opponent and they fire multiple volleys of explosives at them. The Bits then contract, forcing his enemies to move out while the Bits fire large lasers. After escaping inside again, the Bits fire one last volley before disappearing.
    Teseo: "Let a voice cry out: All hail he who weaves the code! For his realm is sealed... Impregnable Fortress!"
    • With little regard as to how overused or outdated they are, Teseo will reference a meme whenever he talks. In fact, he had a field day with using ones to their corresponding owners or people who will get them at least. It's gotten to the point where he vexes his more serious comrades, but he doesn't really mind. Though sometimes he didn't really mean to be annoying it's just that he naturally comes off that way. If its to his enemies, however, then him being a nuisance is instead completely intentional.
    • Teseo really likes to flaunt his hacking abilities, enough to proclaim himself as a deity. Now that he actually is one, he wasted no time competing with other hackers. While 9S and Sombra are conducting missions, he'd sometimes try to sabotage their efforts whenever possible, usually by digitizing the surroundings, and he'd announce this through hijacking their respective comms. Given their movement in the Metaverse, he's not as free to screw with Futaba Sakura or the rest of the Phantom Thieves but he's able to achieve a similar affect by mentioning he'd been looking up their close confidants or bringing up the Valentine's Day incident. With all that said though, even he knows well enough not to screw with Lain.
    • "LOL Why you mad tho? And actually I don't pray to a god because I am one."
  • Applies to Gibril only:
    • Fiery, violent, and cruel: All valid words to describe Gibril, though she did not start out this way at first. Hailing from England, she born to a caring mother and a harsh, distant father. Not wanting to damage his reputation, he'd "coach" Gibril's mother by beating her in order to raise his daughter in what he thought was right. One day, after graduating from prep school Gibril was greeted with her mother's corpse on the floor. In the moment, Gibril used her Septima to kill her dad in return and was soon taken away for counseling. After escaping, she resorted to becoming a hooligan with a bunch of other Adepts until she met Zonda. The mysterious girl challenged Gibril to fight, with the mysterious girl coming out on top and Gibril soon following Zonda in return.
    • Her Septimal Power is Metallon which allows her to, of course, controls metal. In Alchemist Mode, she puts this to good use by creating objects ranging from battleaxes to iron maidens and can drain the blood the others to fuel her powers. This also has the nasty side effect of practically turning them into zombies she puppets around. If pushed further, her armor shifts into a more aggressive form called Beast Mode. Here, she gains Wolverine Claws and assumes a Primal Stance to rush down and hack away at her enemies.
      • If pushed even farther than that she can choose to activate her Limit Break: Iron Maiden. Gibril will lock herself in a iron maiden of her own as a gigantic cage entraps both her and the enemy before breaking open the iron coffin in Crisis Beast Mode. She takes less damage and will jump all over the cage, using her own blood to create gigantic metal spikes to impale people. Of course, it can and will kill her if she overdoes it but by that point she doesn't care anymore.
      Gibril: Instinct conquers all - instilling new agony - yet bliss transcends pain! Iron Maiden!
    • Hates, hates, hates anything referencing her height (or lack thereof) or being referred to as a child, or any implications surrounding it no matter how small. Don't even say anything referring as such when she's around as it's practically taboo. Such as complex is practically reflective of her short temper.
    • Certain characteristics often lead to people comparing her to the likes of Edward Elric, Dracula, and Risotto Nero. For Ed it's the ability of turning iron in blood into weapons, aforementioned height complexes, and nickname "The Full Metal Jacket. As for the most infamous vampire Gibril use of her Septima primarily involves blood and she herself fuels it by draining the blood of others, use of undead minions, and even a large manor/castle with medieval elements thrown in. Lastly there's Risotto with the criminals clad in black colors with scalera and similar powers and both their powers are named after heavy metal bandsnote . While Ed is disgusted by her and her team and Dracula doesn't care about them, Risotto instead sees her as a rival.
    • Like Zonda, her take on love is pretty warped. With Gibril's upbringing shaping her to be a murderous girl, after her death and her "resurrection" through illusions, it turns out that she would of fallen in love with the person who killed her. To Gibril, her killer was the first ever person to make her feel such pain in her entire life and decided to engage in combat with them to feel the pain while dealing it back.
    • "You think you can make me suffer? You think that? I dole out pain! Not you! Never forget it!"
  • Applies to Milas only:
    • Rather unusual among this cast of Adepts, Milas is a guy who's more about protecting the ocean rather than fighting for an Adept paradise. In fact, he used to be part of an organization dedicated to protect the environment but left them feeling that they weren't doing enough. Milas decided that Eden would be a more suitable group to carry out his goals, though he didn't elevate to the positions the Seven instantly. Rather, the spot was freed up after an unnamed member of them died in a mission. After some evaluation, he was considered strong enough to join them.
    • Who would think that a guy who fights for the seas would use it as his very own Septima. While Ichor could be used for many forms of liquid, Milas' love for the ocean makes him a novice at using anything other than ocean or freshwater. Nevertheless, he's still a daunting foe to face with various shapes he can make with them. His tridant is also something to watch out as the head also functions as a boomerang and harp. Aqua Avatar is Milas' Limit Break,
    Milas: "Currents brightly shine and waves cascade o'er me as they cleanse the land! Aqua Avatar!"
    • Initially, Milas tried reaching out to the Nature Preservers but was met with mixed reception on the whole "kill all powerless humans" part. That and if his world is anything to go off of, evidence points that Adepts are quite the nature destroyers themselves with their conflicts between each other and with regular humans. Viridi points out that, setting aside the Septimal powers, there really isn't a fine distinction to differentiate Adepts from other humans, and thus still a threat to nature.
    • As an Atlantean that was actually raised by humans and apart of the Justice League, Aquaman isn't a fan of Milas' Fantastic Racism. He's sure to intercept the Aquadynamic Merman's operations whenever he can. Condlicts with the Atlantean usually end with Milas on the losing end, but he's since been taking precautions to even the field.
    • Milas was referred to as Nimrod in the original japanese translation, but for obvious reasons this was changed once the game's sequel went overseas. Any wise guy wanting to bring it up will get vortexed into a boomerang harp or splattered across the ceiling.
    • "I call upon my Septima! The power of nature itself! And when the people of this polluted earth are no longer... Then shall I create a pure world of oceans blue!"
  • Applies to Asroc only:
    • Asroc's a French Jerk instilled with a burning vengeance for all of humanity, a far cry from his younger self. As a kid he was the eldest of four to only a mother and was quiet and kind. Inspired by the homemade cakes his mother made, he dreamed of becoming a patissier and at the age of only 12 he managed to become an apprentice to a famous chef. Though told to hide his status, word soon got out that he was in fact an Adept and faced discrimination. Though unturned, this escalated into coming home to his house being burned down by an Adept-hating human and not long after that was expelled by his master in order to not get involved. Whatever innocence and kindness he had left died that day and soon joined Eden to pay humanity back for everything that went wrong for him.
    • Controlling all forms of machines, even down to the most broken and old ones, through orange strings from Asroc's fingertips is the Puppetmaster Septima. Is it any wonder why Eden's chief technician and weapons developer? When it comes to direct combat, he uses his very own robot: Galette Krone. Only animate thanks to his Septimal power, its a walking armory. Lasers, bullets, fire, and blades galore, Asroc surely will be the one baking his enemies. Through his Limit Break, he can even disassemble Galette Krone to attack people with each individual part before reforming once more. In fact, Asroc will keep animating Galette Krone every time it goes down.
      Asroc: "Free the puppet now from the yoke of fate's cruel strings to fight for my joy! Amuse-Bouche!"
      • His chef d'oeuvre shall we say is a Humongous Mecha called the Gran Torta. Piloted by Asroc while inside Galette Krone, it's intended as Eden's weapon of mass destruction. Though he himself claims it's unfinished, it's still perfectly capable of raining hell on anyone who opposes him. Thanks to being revived, he's gotten back to work on it and after seeing other mechs in action, he's inspired by the prospect of surpassing them.
    • As a cook, Asroc's... rather fond of implementing cooking metaphors in his speech. Just, in general. Whether its banter in battle or just complementing someone, he just feels the need to add it as toppings onto his words. He's also extremely stingy when it comes to "lowly" foods. Asroc will fly into a violent rage if presented with this.
      • Speaking of violent rage, his blood boiled like stew after hearing the existence of the Mystery Food Recipes. Asroc refuses to associate with anyone involved in its creation, and promises to hunt down and roast anyone who even thinks of recreating it.
    • "I'll show you how we handle primitives in the kitchen! You're just another bit of my bloody mise en place... Now be quiet and wait your turn at the buffet line!"
  • Applies to Ghauri only:
    • Back then he was an aspiring figure skater with the training and education to match, but the support against Adepts grew too much for him to enter. Instead, he became a street dancer with other Adepts, using their Septimas to bring performances unique to only them. Yet discrimination grew, even after keeping his team's spirits up through rap, and it all culminated with the leader critically injured due to an incident with a rival team and Ghauri's team disbanding. Despite this past, line of work and shared hatred of normal people with the rest of Eden, Ghauri's a guy who's upbeat, out-going, and fond of rhyming on a dime. Even at the cost of his words losing coherency. Seriously, even serious people have trouble keeping up with something notoriously deliriously.
    • As the Prism Master, this show-off is granted the ability to create and manipulate crystals. Not only are they very dense, but they can reflect light into deadly lasers. Hence, this makes him quite a deadly foe, especially since with his agility and ability to coat the ground with crystals, Ghauri is a tricky trailblazer. A Grimoire in hand allowed his ability to devastate a highway, making this Adept a handy life eraser.
      • His Limit Break, Poetry Slam, creates towering crystal pillars that drop from the sky. They will start to refract lasers in multiple directions and after a while will come down to break them with kicks and spins, not lacking in attack supply. Breaking the refracted parts and evading his agility at high is handy when you're trying not to die.
    Ghauri: "Prism glitters bright, forming such bewitching bonds from which none may flee! Poetry Slam!"
    • Apparently, he originally was going to ride a motorcycle and had some power relating to time on top of crystal powers. While the former is unnecessary as skating on ground is enough to match such speeds, he was interested in the idea of having some power over time and has been looking into that. Knowing Ghauri, he'd probably use it more to up the glamour in his moves than anything.
    • Ghauri started rhyming after he gave a rap that motivated his former dance troupe to go on a while long, and he frequents the House of Narrative to touch up on his rhymes. No, it hasn't made some of them any less atrocious. The fact he's very insistent that others join in on rhyming there hasn't made it any less annoying. He does applaud Rubella for trying, however.
    • “The parasitic arthritic thinks he's a critic! Such pathetic aesthetic must be in your genetics! So get ready for judging, 'cause I ain't sympathetic."
  • Applies to Desna only:
    • Hailing from Russia, she comes from a wealthy family and was adored by many thanks to her beauty and predictions in accordance to the stars. Life would soon change for her after a violent riot led by an Adept occurred. Fearing discrimination, Desna's family locked her in her house for her safety. But Desna would soon escape using her Septima to guide other Adepts who have lost their ways and this would continue as she received a message telling her to join Eden. Desna's by far one of the least evil members here, but she's ruthless all the same.
    • She was admired for her hair, and the trend continued wtih Eden's Mooks back before her defeat at Firmament. Her Septimal Power is Splitting Ends, which allows her to utilize her seemingly limitless amount of golden hair. Hands, platforms, drills, blades, and they even function as pseudo-electrical wiring. Desna's Limit Break, Entangled Strands, fills the whole room shes in with her own hair to for the purpose of ensnaring her opponent in a giant vortex of hair.
    Desna: "Golden locks of hair, heed the maiden's wish and build a spire to Heaven! Entangled Strands!"
    • A fortune teller by trade, all thanks to her unshakable belief in the stars. She is unable to comprehend results not going how she expects it to, and can uncharacteristically go berserk from this.
      Tenjian: "It'd seem she can't acknowledge results that don't match her ideal results and seeks the cause of that on the outside."
      Gibril: "Desna... she can actually be pretty dangerous..."
      • Chihaya is actually unerved by this as it reminded her of the time she blindly believed in fate if only to convince herself to avoid the blame of scamming people. Desna meanwhile dismisses any connections between her and the human fortune teller.
    • Desna once heard of a House associated with the cosmos but was disappointed when asking around that the House of Time and Space is not an actual House, more of an umbrella term for gods with titles associated with it. She resorted to justa
    • "Perhaps starlight cannot reach a heart so dark. So let me use their light to end your pain!"

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

    Leona (League of Legends
Leona, Goddess of Sun Symbolism (The Radiant Dawn)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leona_originalloading.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Iron Solari Crest
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: High Defense To Protect, Glacier Waif, Sun Power, The Solar to Diana's Lunar, The Paladin, Lady of War, Light Used For Goodness, Traumatic Superpower Awakening, Martial Pacifist, Shield Combat, BFS, Support Party Member, Love For The Enemy
  • Domain: Philosophy/Faith, Protection, Combat, Sun, Good
  • Allies: Most of the Champions of Runeterra (but especially Pantheon), Amaterasu, Django, Itsuki Myoudouin, Tokugawa Ieyasu, Himeko Kurusugawa and Chikane Himemiya, Artix von Krieger, Captain America, Princess Celestia, Solaire of Astora, Twitch, Houyi
  • Rivals: Defenders of the Ancients, in particular Mirana
  • Enemies: Diana, Mouri Motonari, Balanar, Nightmare Moon (whom he formerly served as her High Priest)
  • Her ascension was actually not in a battle between the Champions and Heroes. It was at that time that the Mouri clan assaulted the Tokugawa clan, and the former had the upper hand, even if the latter had the Rakkor tribe under Pantheon backing them up (that was the reason why Pantheon was in anyway). However, when Motonari was trying to use the Solar Nexus in order to fry friends and foes alike, an actual Solar Flare bursted down the whole Solar Nexus and from there, Leona arrived, eschewing Motonari that the Sun was meant to protect friends, not to fry them. Of course, that was never listened by Motonari, forcing Leona to fight, but that marked the time of Motonari losing hand, as Leona protected everyone under Tokugawa and Rakkor and even Mouri clan soldiers that was nearly sacrificed by Motonari's plans with the actual sun power, driving him away. These soldiers felt such gratitude that they immediately without fear swore loyalty to Leona as she swore to use her ascension to the Pantheon to protect even more people.
  • As the symbol of the Sun, Leona encourages the ray of the suns to protect others and giving warmth and hope to those under it. Of course, if the opposition went too far, they can also burn. Leona is meant to be the bridge that balances such.
  • Obviously, she's at least glad that Pantheon has also ascended first, much to his insistence that he's not THAT pleased to see her (because as children, she used to beat him in sparring a lot). There are rumors that Leona is a big fan of Pantheon's cakes.
    • But to her horror it seemed that around the same time, her enemy Diana has also ascended. As much as she really wanted to avoid a fight, Leona knew that a showdown would be at hand one day. Worse that she used to love Diana as a friend and killing a loved one always hurts.
  • As an 'avatar' of the Sun, Leona held great respect on Amaterasu. She also got along well to both Himeko and Chikane, despite Chikane being aligned to the Moon. This is because Leona is a lot more conservative than other Sun-worshipping zealots. She is also considered as a Sacred Knight by Artix.
    • Leona was there when Diana launched the assault to Amaterasu's house, which turned out to be an elaborate plan by Yuki Terumi to take away the Moon power from Amaterasu. However, Leona ended up witnessing Amaterasu gaining her humanoid form and helped driving away the two. Amaterasu has promised to make a good use about the tales Leona told her about the Summoner's Rift, that she's going to use some of them in the Battleground of the Gods, and assured her that she always has her back.
  • Despite the similar position name, the Pantheon vetoed against Leona and Diana sharing house, because they probably would instead not get along and beat the crap out of each other at best, kill each other at worst.
  • Has a record of nail-breaking. Just that it's never hers.
  • Ever since the rise of Balanar, Leona has often be seen during nights, and keeps a more aware stance during daylight, in case it turns into night suddenly. She's more dedicated to lend her protection to the ones that Balanar would strike down. Solaire of Astora has teamed up with her in this regard.
    • While she would admit that the Princess of the Moon, Mirana, is fairer than Diana's more brutal ways, Leona didn't like her either, as she sees Mirana as someone too eager to flaunt her 'nobility', which reminded her on how the strong flaunts their strength too much they become bullies in Rakkor. Not to mention, she left her Solar Throne, making Leona think of this: "What is wrong with the sun to you anyway?"
  • "The dawn has arrived."

    Skullomania 
Skullomania, God of Skeleton Motifs (Saburo Nishikoyama)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/skullomania_2.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: An "S" and his skelleton suit
  • Theme Song: Amusementive Crime
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Goofy but Pretty Competent, Calling Your Attacks, Cool Mask, Dance Battler, Dark Is Not Evil, Large Ham, Wrestler in All of Us
  • Domains: Heroes, Work, Vigilantism, Good, Skeleton, Fighting
  • Followers: Skull Man
  • Allies: Ryu, Ken Masters, Chun-Li, Sakura Kasugano, Terry Bogard, All Ascended Toku Heroes (Special mention to Takeshi Hongo & Hayato Ichimonji and Shotaro Hidari and Philip), Skull Knight, Papyrus and Sans, Saitama
  • Enemies: M. Bison, The House of Villains, Evil Skeletons, "Hero Killer" Stain
  • Saburo Nishikoyama was a third-rate salaryman that struggled with his work to try and support his family and he had to take additional jobs just to make the cut. One day he performed an act dressed up as a superhero at a department store and after that was done, a hidden passion of his awakened. He kept the suit and from that point onward, the vigilante superhero Skullomania was born, seeking to free the world from all evil and to square off against the top martial artist in existence.
  • After ascending, he loudly proclaimed in front of a big crowd that he would liberate the pantheon of all evil and he has his eyes set in the House of Villains. Considering his silly and hamtastic demeanor, not many deities took him seriously but then he demonstrated to be a competent combatant and so his reputation has increased overtime.
  • Some where surprised to see him be the chosen deity for Skeleton Motif considering the grand majority of candidates are not exactly heroes but Skullomania is not one of those people. He has claimed that he is going to prove himself worthy of the title.
  • Skullomania takes some cues from Tokusatsu superheroes, his biggest inspirations are the first two Kamen Riders Takeshi Hongo & Hayato Ichimonji, both men who Skullomania has nothing but respect, he even challenged them to a few rounds and the skeleton man held his own against the legendary Kamen Riders. However, the biggest surprise was that two other Kamen Rider deities, Shotaro and Philip, confused him for his mentor Kamen Rider Skull who Skullomania is said to resemble a lot. What gave away that he wasn't their mentor was that he is a lot more serious and calm, something that can't be said for Skullomania.
  • Happy to learn that there were a few familiar faces in the pantheon like Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and Sakura, fighters he respects and has fought in the past. While their universe don't really exist together anymore, Skullomania still has been contacted by them to take down Shadaloo, something that he has been trying to do for a while.
  • Papyrus heard of him and thought that he was copying his style. Especially the red scarf which was characteristic of the skeleton. Though he found later that Skullomania wasn't that bad of a dude, in fact their personalities mershed well together. Sans tolerates the vigilante since he makes Papyrus happy, but he keeps an eye on the human in case he hurts his brother in one of their sparring sessions.
  • While Skullomania is not super serious himself, he can be a force to be reckoned with if understimated. Considering the similar get-up and Dark but Well-meaning intentions, Skullomania ended up becoming friends with the Skull Knight, who he knows hails as a mentor in the art of swordfight. He isn't very good with weapons so he prefers to stick to martial arts in the meantime, but the two consider the other very valuable allies.
  • In one of his many late night patrols, the skeleton hero found himself face to face against the infamous "Hero Killer" Stain. The Hero Killer has heard about Skullomania and his vigilantic antics, considering him another worthless hero who only does heroing because he felt bored with life and saw him as his next potential target. Skullomania didn't take kindly that Stain ignored his drive for justice and swore to defeat him and bring him to justice. The two were evenly matched but thankfully Skullomania was aided at the last minute by some of his Tokusatsu friends, forcing the Hero Killer to escape. He swore to capture Stain no matter the cost.
  • Befriended Saitama after learning that his motivations for becoming a hero were quite similar to his. He was also a third rate salaryman that became a hero after finding their every day life quite boring. Yet Saitama also shares the same spark for heroism and it helped that Skullomania reminded him of his friend Licenceless Rider.
  • Not very fond of evil skeletons, since it doesn't give him a good reputation considering his suit. He never actually expected to encounter living skeletons wandering the halls of the pantheon and considering that most of them are evil, he decided that they were no different from Villains. Although he might quite a few of them that weren't actually that bad.

    Spiritomb 
Spiritomb, God of Sinister Eastern Numbers (The Forbidden Pokémon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px_442spiritomb.png
  • Lesser God(s)
  • Symbol: The Odd Keystone, much to its discontent
  • Alignment: True Neutral (with chaotic neutral leanings)
  • Ability: Infiltrator
  • Gender: Malenote 
  • Moveset: Dark Pulse, Curse, Shadow Ball, Sucker Punch
    • Z-Move: Black Hole Eclipse
  • Portfolio: 108 Spirits Sealed In An Odd Keystone, Dark Is Evil, Unholy Is Purple, Buddhist Symbolism, Mind Hive, Darkness Moves, Combat Pragmatist, Slow But Strong, Jagged Mouth
  • Domains: Spirits, Imprisonment, Curses, Corruption, Evil
  • Allies: Murkrow, Shedinja, Shinnok, Izaya Orihara, Eric Cartman
  • Rivals: Legion, Ermac, Alex Mercer
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Banette, Gul'dan
  • Commonality Connection with: The Regi Trio
  • Enemies: Fairies (regardless of alignment), the House of Justice, Cyrus, Ash Ketchum, Lucario, Golurk, Doctor Boom, Kei Shirogane, The Ghostbusters, Marona, Gabriel Belmont
  • Envies: Xerath
  • Opposes: Giygas
  • Opposed by: Gengar, Wobbuffet
  • One of the most sinister Pokémon out there is Spiritomb, known as the Forbidden Pokémon. Born out of 108 wicked spirits bound to the Odd Keystone, the ghost is rife with symbolism around the 108 temptations of Buddhism; it is #108 in the Sinnoh Dex, weighs 108 kilograms, its base defense is 108 and one can even be found on Route 108. For dripping with 108 symbolism and reference, it was made the god of this sinister number.
    • There are some other Pokémon who have a dex number of 108 depending on which you use. He doesn't think much of them. Wobbuffet, however, is really frustrated by Spiritomb as it can't do shit to the Forbidden Pokémon due to typing.
  • The cruel Spiritomb will go out of his way to avenge any slight, particularly those who sealed it. This puts it on bad terms with Ash Ketchum for being a reincarnation of the Aura Guardian who sealed it, and Lucario for their association with Aura Guardians. Its vengeful nature and love of misdeeds led it to find a kindred spirit within Eric Cartman, but an even greater kinship with King Boo; it agrees with his need for revenge.
  • Spiritomb is a rarity among Pokémon in that it is genuinely evil, rather than being evil for its master. This is likely due to how it became a Pokémon in the first place. Even then, Spiritomb still follows the unspoken code that a Pokémon must follow their trainer. As such, it is loyal to good-aligned trainers. Unfortunately for the GUAG this Spiritomb is partnered with King Boo, so they can't use him.
  • Back in the old days, Spiritomb used to have no type weaknesses; being dark covered its psychic and dark vulnerabilities, and being ghost covered fighting vulnerabilities. Only Sableye had this special typing, and Spiritomb was still more powerful. Through hacking Shedinja loaned him Wonder Guard, making him nigh-invulnerable. But then fairies were introduced and it gained weaknesses. Spiritomb has sworn vengeance against every fairy in the pantheon because of this, no matter who they are. It also detests Doctor Boom for representing balance, believing it
  • Notably similar to Legion and Ermac; like them, its a Mind Hive of many souls stuck in one body. It regards both as rivals, and seeks to usurp their position for its own to increase its pantheon standing. It also notes being similar to the Regi Trio, due to being an ancient Pokémon who was sealed away. Of course, the Regis are good/neutral and may have permitted being sealed away, while Spiritomb deserved a sealing.
  • Being a Sealed Evil in a Can, Spiritomb hates those who can bond beings with magic, such as Kei Shirogane. Thankfully for Spiritomb it has help in Shinnok. Shinnok can sympathize with the Forbidden Pokemon, and in exchange for the mysteries of the Odd Keystone will help make him stronger. Given his entrapment there's a certain understanding between Gul'dan as well, but even Spiritomb is unnerved by the orc.
    • Is envious towards Xerath due to having shed his physical form.
  • Naturally interested in other ghost Pokemon, however isn't much liked as they consider him too mischievous. Banette will help Spiritomb's vengeance for its own, but will remind the Forbidden Pokémon it has limits. And Golurk considers him to be an ancient threat it must protect the pantheon from.
  • Fears Marona and Gabriel Belmont for being able to kill spirits.
  • For it's imprisonment and general criminal nature, Spiritomb is naturally disdainful towards the House of Justice. Sometimes it goes on criminal endeavors with Murkrow just to irritate them.
  • Has chosen to help out with the GUAE Trollkaiger under Izaya Orihara. He did promise to help free him from the Odd Keystone and let him go rampant For the Evulz, after all. Of course, being a Pokémon means most of what Spiritomb does is either petty dickery or not that awful. Izaya is hoping to "educate" the Pokemon. Melkor is pleased as it means he has an actual Pokémon in the GUAE.

  • Sometime in the late 19th century, in a house with starkly red walls, there were three sisters and their maid. The middle sister, Agnes, was dying slowly from cancer, while the eldest, Karin, and the youngest, Maria, watched over her. But Agnes' condition invoked revulsion instead of love and pity in her sisters, and she could only rely on her maid Anna for comfort. Inside a house painted in visceral color and in the face of death, all four women contended with their personal demons and resentment for each other, which they couldn't overcome. When Agnes died, the three remaining women went their separate ways without improving their situations.
  • Because of how their tale utilizes the symbolism of colors to an extent rarely seen, it was determined that hardly anyone was better than them for Color Motif. Originally, the Love That Moves The Stars reached out to Agnes in death and offered her the position, alongside Anna, as he was touched by their love and faith. However, Agnes said that godhood would be pointless to her if her sisters weren't at her side as well, and if that couldn't be, she'd rather stay dead.
  • Since the Love couldn't reach Karin and Maria, as they weren't open to him like Agnes or Anna were, he instead sent another trustworthy deity to tell them everything and convince them to come. And that deity was Dukemon. Why? Several factors, but the main one is that Love wanted to test Karin and Maria by making them responsible for retrieving Agnes from the House of Life and Death, but since they're just normal humans they could be killed easily by a bored evil deity, so the Intermediate-ranked Dukemon was to escort them in this journey. It took the two sisters a while to decide, but eventually Karin said yes, out of a sense of duty and to redeem herself for failing Agnes. Maria just went along with Karin's decision. It'd take too long to relate their journey here, so it'll have to suffice to say that by the end of it, they were reunited with Agnes and Anna and they were all instated as goddesses. As for Dukemon, the bonds he created with the sisters led him to being unable to just leave them alone and the Royal Knight was particularly drawn to the dutiful and honor-bound Karin, so he asked her to be his Tamer.
  • When the adrenaline of the peculiar circumstances of their ascension had passed, things were fairly awkward between the four women for a while. Understandable, given the last time they had all seen each other, Karin and Maria rejected Agnes when she asked for their help in passing on, then fired Anna, and then became even more estranged from each other. Although, Karin and Maria did improve their relationship slightly during their journey to the House of Life and Death. Given that the only other choice was to go back to their unsatisfying mortal lives stuck in dead-ends and forget everything about the Pantheon, Karin and Maria decided to stay, much to Agnes' cheer as she feels the Pantheon is their greatest chance to be a family again.
  • Agnes isn't terminally ill in the Pantheon. Condemning her to an eternity of that would be too cruel and she doesn't deserve it. She does seem to have a weak constitution since reviving, though, so she rarely strays far from the temple, but at least she's not in horrific pain anymore. Generally, if there's something outside the temple that needs taking care of, it's Karin and Maria who do it; Anna prefers to stay and look after Agnes.
  • This should be obvious, but their temple is indeed their family manor that's all red on the inside. Anything else would be inappropriate, really. But it has led to the inconvenience that Marceline the Vampire Queen sometimes can't resist the temptation of such a rich color and steals into the temple in the middle of the night, and when the four women wake up they find splotches of gray marring their walls which they then have to repaint. Being a pretty old deity, Dukemon was aware that Marceline was the culprit and threatened her for causing trouble for his lieges. Now the problem only occurs every six months or so (because Marceline can't help herself even if she's terrified of Dukemon).
  • While it's usually so quiet at their temple that it's eerie, visitors who take their time often start hearing whispering. Deities who are their allies eventually stop hearing it and deities who have no doubts about themselves are also unaffected, but it's given the the temple a reputation for being haunted... and it also makes younger deities think that it'd be a cool place to pull off Scare Dares. They take care to stick to the uninhabited wings of the place, but Karin's still annoyed at this.
  • Given how Agnes, Karin and Maria's relationship to each other as sisters is a pretty big part of them, they've attracted the attention of a number of benign sibling deities who want them to patch things up.
    • Dukemon thought it relevant to introduce them to Koichi Kimura, who knows from experience how dangerous it can be for one's negative feelings about one's siblings to overtake them. He's not too concerned about Agnes, as she's made her wish to have a good relationship with her sisters clear, but he finds Karin and her conflicted emotions regarding Maria all too relatable, and reminds Koichi of how he felt at first about Koji (even if the circumstances were very different).
    • Satsuki and Mei Kusakabe were curious about their manor, thinking it must be haunted by spirits, which they aren't afraid of given their adventures. So they visited and explored the place and thought all the red and clocks and things were really pretty, but couldn't find any spirits at all. They did get attached to the residents, as Agnes reminds them of their sick mother, and she's pleased to have such lively visitors. Plus, Satsuki thinks that Karin and Maria probably suffered as much as she and Mei did, so she's always trying to hang out with them, despite the difference in age. Agnes encourages this, so Karin ends up yielding, claiming that someone (you'll forgive her for doubting Totoro's existence since she can't see him, nor can any of the household) has to watch over the girls to make sure they don't run afoul of the many awful things in the Pantheon.
    • Agnes has gained the friendship of the Arendelle sisters, Elsa and Anna (yes, it gets confusing sometimes), for believing in her sisters' love and wishing to repair the broken relationships in her family. The Arendelles' relationships with her sisters are a lot less harmonious, however. Karin reminds Elsa of herself when she was shutting herself off from the world and thinks she might have become like her if the events at the coronation hadn't happened. She also sympathizes more with Maria, probably due to her feelings of guilt regarding Anna, so whenever Karin and Elsa talk, they're almost always arguing about how Karin doesn't treat Maria right in Elsa's opinion. More or less the opposite is true for Anna, who dislikes Maria less for reminding her of herself, but for reminding her of Hans with her faked niceness and manipulations, and in turn makes her feel sorry for Karin for having such a terrible younger sister. Despite all this, Elsa and Anna do want them to get along.
  • Agnes made friends with Mufasa during the time she was waiting in the House of Life and Death (since Mufasa was also perma-dead at the time) and he was basically the only company around. The two could relate to how they both got killed off midway through their stories and left behind family members who didn't deal with their loss in the best way. They came back to life in the Pantheon at different times, but they kept in touch.
  • Anna has her own angst regarding having lost a young daughter in the past; she wound up transferring her maternal instincts to the ailing Agnes. This garners her the sympathy and relatability of Toriel, who also lost her child and led her to turn her attention to Frisk in a similar way.
    • Anna's even starting to extend her motherliness to Karin and Maria, but while the latter isn't disinclined, the former is much too prideful to have a servant be a mother hen to her.
  • Agnes feels rather curious and happy about the presence of other deities that have the same creator as them, believing that they're a sort of family as well. Arranging to meet and befriend Alma and Elisabet went well for the most part, except that Maria and Elisabet ended up really not liking each other. This is because it really bothers Elisabet that someone with her exact face could be so insincere when that's what she's trying to avoid by being mute, while Maria finds her an utter bore and her willing muteness ridiculous. On another note, Alma, being a nurse, also helps out with caring for Agnes once in a while.
  • As with all the creations of Ingmar Bergman, they are loathed by YHVH because He sees his filmography as blasphemous. Of course, since they came into contact with the Love That Moves The Stars first, they don't believe that YHVH is supposed to be THE Christian God anyway.
  • As Karin is the first deity with no relation to computers whatsoever to become partnered with a Digimon, and a Royal Knight on top of that, the White Hats' feelings about her are pretty mixed, with some believing she distracts Dukemon from his "real" job. A few actually are supportive, like Omegamon, out of friendship for Dukemon and possibly also Alma and Elisabet. Lisbeth Salander was also very interested in their case; as an avenger for abused women, she thinks it only appropriate that four women who have little to no means of protecting themselves from the insane things in the Pantheon should have an extremely powerful guardian. Lisbeth first visited the foursome's temple with the offer to teach them to use a computer so her fellow White Hats would shut up. Karin decided the knowledge could definitely be useful, and so Lisbeth became a frequent visitor there.
  • A god who actively hates Dukemon's choice is Khorne, only because he wanted Dukemon for himself and can't believe a remarkable warrior like him would make it his priority to protect such weak and insignificant women. Of course, Dukemon already hated Khorne, his philosophy and his plans to corrupt him into Megidramon, so he doesn't give a damn what the war god thinks and will protect his chosen Tamer and her family from his wrath no matter what.
  • Being deeply troubled and angsty deities, they are pretty attractive bait to deities who relish in causing as much despair as they can, such as Yuuki Terumi and Junko Enoshima, and they think Karin in particular is a delight with her rather violent meltdowns. But they adore starting shit between all four of them and watch as their relationships suffer setbacks. Even the threat of getting Dukemon's lance up where the sun doesn't shine isn't much of a deterrent to them.
