Pantheon / Tastes

Go To

Some expect food to taste a certain way, but there isn't really a guarantee on how those who eat it will react to it. This is basically the taste-test area of the House of Food, and it's possible that visitors could get sick from eating certain foods.

  • Tohka had one of the more amusing introductions in the Pantheon. She barged into the House of Food and started eating as many meals as she could find, to the confusion everyone present. Shido Itsuka was asked to intervene and he managed to calm Tohka and take her back to her temple, where he offered to cook her a special meal. Excited, Tohka agreed and peace was settled.
    • As it turns out, Kotori had called in a few favors among the Pantheon's higher-ups to ascend Tohka. When asked why, Kotori merely replied that Shido's life in the Pantheon was too dull and Tohka could make things more exciting and unpredictable for him. Of course, Shido knew her sister better than that and thanked her.
  • Tohka's memory is one big hole. No records of her life before becoming a Spirit exists, even in the Pantheon's most secure databases. Any attempts to get her to remember her pre-Spirit life have been unsuccessful so far.
  • Her presence in the House of Food earned her the friendships of Soma, Megumi and Erina; who acknowledged Tohka as one of their best customers. She also befriended Kirby, whose optimism and constant apetite reminded Tohka of herself. The two often go for lunch together and, if push comes to shove, beat up any bad guys that stand in the way of their food.
  • Tohka saw a kindred spirit in Arturia Pendragon, both in fencing skills and apetite. Even their first meetings with Shido and Shirou are similar. Arturia took a liking for Tohka and has agreed to teach her in the ways of the sword. Arturia even confided in Tohka about her personal issues and the downfall of her kingdom. Tohka replied that while she doesn't know the pressures of running a kingdom, whatever burdens she has become easier to endure if she has someone she can trust. Arturia thanked her for such sincerity.
  • Another goddess that earned Tohka's friendship was Wonder Woman. Much like Artoria, Diana is another mentor figure for Tohka in swordsmanship and philosophy. Although she feels a bit nervous about Diana's pragmatism and willingness to do the Justice League's dirty works, she at least knows her heart is in the right place. They also love ice cream and regularly have enormous scoops to complete their training.
  • Quickly associated with Laura Bodewig, Yoko Littner, Chiffon Fairchild and Nao Midorikawa thanks to having the same Japanese voice.
    • Tohka's new friends also encouraged her to meet Asuna Yuuki. Conversely, this has put her on Nobuyuki Sugou's hit list. Horrified by his dishonorable actions towards Asuna, Tohka remembers that Isaac Westcott threatened to do the same to her.
  • Is a close friend to Nintendo princesses Peach and Zelda. Seeing how dedicated Mario and Link are in their protection reminds Tohka of Shido and how he would walk the distance for her.
    • She also struck up a friendship with Azura. The young songstress had been ostracized since childhood due to her origins, similar to Tohka's situation before Shido found her. Tohka is glad Azura found happiness with Corrin, who sounds oddly similar to Shido. Also, Tohka enjoys Azura's singing voice and finds her easier to deal with than Miku.
  • Before Shido's infamous crossdressing episode, Tohka herself attempted to crossdress to keep Origami away from him in a plane trip. Observe.
  • Tohka has complicated feelings on Charles Xavier and Magneto as their philosophy reminds him of her world's stance on Spirits. While admiring Xavier for his stand on the mutant's side and disgusted with Magneto's more extreme actions, she dislikes Xavier's tendency to keep secrets from his fellow X-Men and admits the Crapsack World nature of the Marvel Universe tends to justify a lot of Magneto's hatred for them.
  • Because of her bad experiences with Westcott, any god that reminds her of him automatically becomes her enemy. This includes Sheev Palpatine/Darth Sidious for his cruelty and vindictiveness, Altair/Military Uniform Princess for her overall destruction and The Illusive Man for his constant manipulations.
  • Cannot help but feel sorry for Natsuru Senou, and not just because they share the same voice. While his stupidity does get annoying at least when he is not faking it, she is genuinely concerned that his harem is made up of overly aggressive and clingy girls who won't take no for an answer. And don't even get her started on the fact that the girl he does like has been hypnotizing him for her own ends. All of this has made Tohka to decide to make things easier on Shido and support his quest to save the Spirits.


Lesser Gods

    Akihiko Sanada 
I've been waiting for this!

Akihiko Sanada, Patron God of Masculine Meat Lovers (The Two-Fisted Protein Junkie, Half-Naked Cape Guy)

    Kusuha Mizuha 
Kusuha Mizuha, Goddess of 'Health Drinks'
  • Theme Music: None Can Oppose Me
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Chibi Ryu Ko Oh holding a can of her drink with a thumbs up.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Health Drinks, Seiryuu Constellation, Moe, Action Girls, Occasional Distress, Certified Nurse.
  • Domain: Food, War
  • Allies: Elzam von Branstein, Ryusei Date
  • Followers: Sadaharu Inui (The Prince of Tennis), Marie (Atelier Marie and Cross Edge)
  • Despite her position, everybody fears her and her drinks. It knocks down everyone who drinks it (even though they'll feel good later). So far, only Heero Yuy, Elzam Von Branstein (who may have even enjoyed its taste), and (by extension from the latter) Akihisa Yoshii have survived drinking it.
  • Nobody knows what exactly is in her drinks (except Elzam), but the Council of Shadows suspect that Popeye has been suggesting the addition of spinach to her drinks, which may explain the 'good feeling' in the aftermath of the horrible taste.
  • Recently tried to improve the taste of her Health Drink with tips from Morning Rescue, recommended by Madoka Kaname.
    • Solid Snake also recommends her the Regain 24 energy drink. It falls to Kusuha to eventually build something combining Regain 24 and Morning Rescue.
  • Reading all these and listening to her fighting record, it was no surprise that people likes to target the meek Kusuha as a Damsel in Distress. Well, they pray that they can do it quick enough before she gets into the Shin RyuKoOh, because when she does, they're all in for a complete beating and gets reminded why that in the end she's the one wearing the pants in the relations with her boyfriend Brooklyn Luckfield. They also get reminded that she's been doing that since the incident with Euzzeth Gozzo.

Tiger, God of Vegetarian Carnivores
  • Theme Song: "A Duo"
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A stalk of broccoli
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Fat Cat, Friend to All Living Things, Minion with an F in Evil, Big Eater, My Species Doth Protest Too Much
  • Allies: Fievel Mousekewitz, Jerry, most rodents in the Pantheon, and Chomper.
  • Enemies: Greebo
  • Followers: Most notably, a small tribe of Mohican mice in the Utah desert were his first followers, once they noticed his resemblance to a nearby rocky outcropping. Also, a trio of vegetarian sharks have looked to him for guidance. Before he ascended, Chomper was a follower of his, and the two remain close friends.
  • Tiger gained his position thanks in part to both the small cult of Native American mouse followers he already had, and that the only other candidate was Theodore Rex. One viewing of his film made the Higher Gods conclude that even the worst of the An American Tail sequels was never as bad as that movie, and he was dismissed.
  • He'll help any carnivore that wishes to ween themselves off of meat, or at least switch to a diet less harmful toward whatever vegetarian friends they've made (perhaps a diet of bugs, fish, etc.). He can also grill a good veggie burger that tastes almost like the real thing.
  • Doesn't eat red meat at all. His favorite foods are broccoli and Swiss cheese ice cream. Despite his vegetarian diet, he is somehow still a Fat Cat.
  • Mostly a pariah among his own species, he tends to hang around with mice most of the time. Though a Lovable Coward, he'll stick up for his mouse friends when they really need him to.
  • No word yet on how he's actually physically able to digest plant matter.
  • Although Simba still eats meat, his time spent with Timon and Pumbaa makes him appreciate the work Tiger does to help carnivores who've made friends that they'd normally eat.



    Erina Nakiri 
Erina Nakiri, Goddess of Picky Eaters (God's Tongue)

    Megumi Tadakoro 
Megumi Tadakoro, Goddess of Comfort Food
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Her lucky charm
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Food that brings warm, fuzzy feelings, Cute Clumsy Girl, Blue-Haired Fragile Flower before becoming more confident, being a national-level table tennis player as well as a chef, Yamato Nadeshiko
  • Domains: Food, hospitality, shyness
  • Allies: Yukihira Soma, Nakiri Erina (?), Remy, Ryou, Kirin, Shiina, Toriko, Komatsu
  • Observed by: Lucifer. No, seriously.
  • Formerly the High Priestess of Yukihira Soma, Megumi ultimately managed to ascend herself after the reveal of her incredible potential as a chef. While she was thrilled at this development, her newfound position as a goddess was a source of incredible pressure on poor Megumi, and she found herself being overwhelmed during her next assignment before Soma managed to help her calm down.
  • While Soma and Erina's cooking usually bring nigh-euphoric reactions to those who eat it, Megumi's food is more downplayed: those who sample her cooking find themselves relaxed, warm and happy, oftentimes bringing up memories of home life to those who enjoyed the cooking of their families.
    • Despite her demure demeanor, Megumi's cooking has in fact caught the attention of the Demon Lord Lucifer himself. The Lords of Chaos were eating out to celebrate winning a skirmish against the GUAL, and Homura Akemi ordered Kozuyu Chicken Soy Sauce Ramen, one of Megumi's dishes. Upon tasting the ramen, Homura started trembling all over, staring blankly ahead as she was hit by a vision of her sharing a blanket with Madoka in front of a warm fire on a cold winter's night and eating the ramen together. She was forced to excuse herself from the table when she began crying uncontrollably. Lucifer found it astonishing that a mere bowl of ramen managed to have such an effect: Megumi had actually managed to invoke regret in Homura for turning her back on such simple comforts in exchange for power. Not even Nanoha and company had managed to shake her that badly. While Homura seems to have recovered, Lucifer is eyeing Megumi as a potential threat to Homura's loyalty to the cause of Chaos.
    • Kyouko Sakura is a frequent customer of hers: Sayaka Miki has theorized that Megumi's food reminds Kyouko of her happy home life before everything fell apart. Kyouko has offered no comment; when asked, her ears went red and she went back to her food, not responding.
  • While not cooking, Megumi sometimes goes to the House of Sports in order to keep her table tennis skills sharp. Many a deity has underestimated the shy goddess before finding out the hard way how skilled she is.
  • Gets along surprisingly well with Remy. Apparently, one of the rat's dishes had an effect on a food critic very similar to her own, making him remember the joys of his mother's cooking. That, and she thinks Remy is rather adorable.
  • Once tried to help teach Chie Satonaka and the rest of the Mystery Food crew how to cook; they had heard she had less-than-impressive grades before becoming a genuine chef in her own right, and hoped that they could learn how she pulled it off. Megumi credited her growth to Soma, but agreed to teach them anyway. The lessons ended after a half-hour with Megumi wandering off somewhere to stare at a wall.
  • An unfortunately common test subject for Soma's dishes; on the one hand, she often is the first to try his most spectacular creations, but on the other she's often the one who first tries his failures.
  • Slowly becoming friends with Toriko after Soma introduced them; although Toriko's personality is a little overwhelming, she gets along pretty well with fellow chef Komatsu, who is much calmer by comparison and is giving her a few tips of his own on how to improve her skills.
    • Her attempts with some of the ingredients from Toriko's world didn't turn out too well: Soma had neglected to tell her about some of the more exotic ingredients and the fact they break many 'rules' of the foods she's worked with, and she ended up making a more than a few disastrous dishes. As she has no intention of setting up shop in Toriko's world in general, she's politely declined to try again, sticking with the 'normal' ingredients she's familiar with.
