    Kermit the Frog 
Kermit the Frog, God of Muppets (Kermie, The Frog, Joel's Dad)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kermit_6597.png
  • Theme Song: The Rainbow Connection
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A logo of his head.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Straight Men, Only Sane Men, Only Sane Employees, Interspecies Romance, Rainbows.
  • Domains: Theater, Music, Banjos, Swamps, Rainbows
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
    • Non-Ascended: Wart, Doc Hopper, Rachel Bitterman, Tex Richman.
    • Ascended: Cirno
  • Tries to act as the Straight Man in the Theater Pantheon and acts as host for most of the performances in the Theater. If not that, he usually makes sure everything is in order prior to everyone's performances.
    • Gets along with Mickey Mouse in regards, since Mickey usually turns his temple into a lounge known as the "House of Mouse".
  • He and Wart were both up for the God of Batracians, with Miss Piggy and Bowser fighting on their behalf. The battle was described as timeless. Bowser won when Miss Piggy was buried under a mountain of Thwomps.
    • However, he's more than fine with the current holder of the title, Greninja, and the two often help each other when Cirno proves too much for them.
  • Kermit has spent a good fifty years searching for the elusive Rainbow Connection. But he will only be able to find it with the lovers and dreamers.
  • Kermit has honorably said that he spiritually shares his title with his late friend Jim Henson, and every single fellow Muppet in existence.
  • Has actually teamed up with many wrestling gods where the Muppets interacted with them throughout the show. It was a sight to be hold.
  • Shares a Commonality Connection with Jareth, as they both came from the same creator.
  • Joel has respect for Kermit because of his voice, which reminds Joel of his dad. However, Kermit didn't like it when Joel brought up the time Kermit had teeth.
    • Joel is also the main reason why Kermit rarely lets other people use his computer. Weird things tend to happen when the streamer gets his hand on Kermit's laptop, such as irremovable pixelated desktop strippers, meat, ticks and complete destruction through malware and viruses. A strange purple monkey also has a tendency to appear during those odd times.
  • To the surprise of many, he and his pals have actually participated in a racing game before.

    Ginosaji 
Ginosaji, The God of Torturously Long and Drawn-Out Murders, and Spoons (The Spoon Killer, The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ginosaji_4649.jpg
  • Rank: Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A square seal containing katakana reading “su-pu-n”.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Spoons, Slowly Beating People To Death With A Spoon, Spoon Tapping, Cruel and Unusual Death, Implacable Man, Immortal Assassin, Improbable Weapon User, Silent Antagonist
  • Domains: Spoons, Stalking, Torture, Insanity, Patience, Murder (eventually)
  • Followers: “It”, Johnny, The Owner, Alanis Morissette, Jane
  • Allies: Alakazam, Pyramid Head, Slender Man, Balloon Boy, AM, The Jigsaw Killer, Mewtwo
  • Enemies: Luke Skywalker, Neo, Mahiro, The Doctor, Virtually Everyone in the House of Food
  • High Priest: The Sheriff of Nottingham, whose propensity for both torture and spoons was previously unmatched.
  • Due to the immortal nature of gods, he tends to give up and randomly choose a new victim after a certain amount of time. This amount of time can range anywhere between a couple of hours and a few years. Although he can’t actually kill any of them no matter how many times he hits them with a spoon, it still hurts like hell.
    • The only exception was Kenny McCormick, who was hit with a spoon a single time, causing him to fall over backwards off a cliff and into a pit of spikes, killing him. Ginosaji was especially confused the next day when he saw Kenny walking by as if nothing happened.
  • One of his favorite methods of torture is to repeatedly strike his victims hands while they are eating, causing them to drop their food/drink in the process. This has earned him the ire of the ENTIRE House of Food.
  • While Celty Sturluson was his chosen victim, he exclusively attacked her helmet. While no physical pain was caused, the noise was beyond unbearable. Any attempt she made at taking it off only resulted in him immediately putting it back on.
  • Magneto once tried to use his powers to take away Genosaji’s various spoons. It worked at first, until he literally pulled a wooden serving spoon out of his ass and started hitting him with it. It was considerably worse than the small metal spoons he was using.
  • Johnny Cage once tried to fend him off by punching his crotch. He refuses to talk about what happened afterwards…
  • Once defeated Luke Skywalker in a lightsaber duel. Luke doesn’t like to talk about it.
  • Despite his negative opinion on any creature that relentlessly stalks its victims, The Doctor is openly impressed by his sheer talent with spoons.
  • The gods in general prefer not to engage him, out of fear of being repeatedly and mercilessly whacked with a spoon.
  • Was allies with Jigsaw to setting up the greatest, most psychologically painful trap ever produced. Out of relief of everyone in the Pantheon, the two butt-head over different methods (Jigsaw prefers to avoid the dirty works while Ginosaji wants to go there and attack directly) and parted way.
  • However, he doesn't chase after Tommy Wiseau after learning that the latter has weird fascination for spoons and plans to steal all his spoons so Wiseau can decorate his temple with them.
  • Is currently interested in recruiting Alakazam and Mewtwo given that both of them can be seen holding a spoon as their weapons. Mewtwo is annoyed by this given that only an alternative version of it holds a spoon.

    Chad Warden 
Wazzup bitches! Sup bitches! Chad Warden here.

Chad Warden, God of Heavily Edited Words (C. Wizzy, Chad Daddy, Big Poppy)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chad_warden.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Playstation logo
  • Theme Song: We Fly High
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (Chaotic Good during the Reboot arc)
  • Portfolio: Troll, Manipulative Editing, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Sir Swears-a-Lot
  • Domains: Trolling, BALLIN!, Guns, Playstation, Snow Halation, Chicken and Chips
  • High Priest: Jeff Kaplan
  • Allies: All Playstation deities, SiIvaGunner, μ's, Sans, King Harkinian
  • Rivals: LOL Ranger, GUAE Trollkaiger
  • Enemies: All Nintendo and Xbox deities, The Voice inside your Head
  • Chad Warden is a notorious internet Troll that claims the PS3 (Or PS triple as he says) is vastly superior to the other consoles and said consoles being, as he puts it, shit for mexican gay niggas. While he dissapeared for a while, Chad Warden has been used as a "spokeperson" of the internet where he more or less describes or talks about certain topics in a rather convoluted way.
  • Chad Warden was also involved with high quality ripper SiIvaGunner, where in a few videos he hijacked a few videos where he critiziced the SiIvaGunner fanboys for dislike bombing the Snow Halation rips. Later Chad was the only one who survived getting erased from the Reboot and he later when he was offered by the Voice inside your Head to restore all the old jokes except Snow Halation, he sacrificed himself to defeat the voice and merge the reboot and original worlds together. To this day, Chad Daddy is consider a hero among SiIvaGunner fans.
  • He is a huge playstation fan, so it's no wonder that Chad likes to mess with the Xbox and Nintendo deities, saying things like their consoles are not ABAP enough and they should go suck dick. A sizable part of them took him seriously while other know that he is a notorious Troll, so they didn't bother with him.
  • μ's doesn't know what to think of him, but they appreciate that he saved Snow Halation from the voice. Chad just limited to say that they are AQAP (As Quality As Possible) and that he did it because he felt like it.
  • It's unsure where does Chad fall under the Troll alignment but there has been an effort in both LOL Ranger and Trollkaiger to recruit him. Chad however, isn't interested, stating that the whole pantheon conflict isn't ballin for him, so he prefers to stay out of it.
  • Seems to get along with Sans, probably because he hijacked his Megalovania song to send a message to the SiIvaGunner fanboys. And since Sans is neutral in the whole thing about Console Wars, Chad is cool with him. (Although their relationship grew stronger after hearing that Sans' game was getting a PS4 Version).
  • Once decided to review Shovel Knight. Besides a few foul-mouthed statements like calling Shovel Knight and Plague Knights "gay niggas", he otherwise said positive things about the game. He gave it a score of 600/3.
    Chad: It's alright.
  • Gets along with King Harkinian, given the similar way they talk. But because he is no PS deity then they keep a casual relationship (Not to mention he made fun of his boi link once).
  • In an alternate universe, instead of merging the two worlds of SiIvaGunner, he instead murdered Snow Halation and the Voice inside your Head and took over the channel, even murdering SiIva himself.
    • Most of the rips he made were about Chicken and Chips. The reason behind this is unknown, but this alternate Chad has been labelled as "Genocide Chad"
  • While in real life he has dissapeared for a while, he did return after the PS4 was announced to show that he is still BALLIN!.

    The Ghost Planet Staff 
The Ghost Planet Staffmembers , Collective of the 2-for-1 Show (Space Ghost: Tad Ghostal, S.G.)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sgc2c.png
Left to right: Space Ghost, Moltar, Zorak
  • Theme Music: Hit Single; Ghost Planet National Anthem (and its remix)
  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: Space Ghost's desk, Zorak's 360 keyboard, and Moltar's lever; alternatively, the Ghost Planet building
  • Alignment: True Neutral, though Zorak has Chaotic Neutral tendencies (originally, Space Ghost was Lawful Good and Zorak & Moltar were Neutral Evil)
  • Portfolio: Completely Different Personalities Compared to Their Original Appearances, Talk Shows That get Derailed, Medium Blending, Stylistic Suck, Jerkasses
  • Domains: Talk, Comedy, Vitriol
  • Herald: Brak
  • Allies (or more accurately, those they can tolerate): TOM, Powerpuff Girls, Dexter, Batman, Homer Simpson, Nanoha Takamachi, Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman (mostly for Zorak), Kenny McCormick
  • Enemies (or nuisances to their show, mostly for Space Ghost at least): The Spy, Trollkaiger, Itazura Griefers
  • Originally, Space Ghost was a superhero and among his enemies included Zorak & Moltar. Times have changed and now S.G works as a talk show host. The aforementioned villains are stuck working with him as punishment (Zorak is bandleader and Moltar is director/producer). Although the main point of the talk show is to interview guests, the on-set antics between the host, bandleader, and director/producer make their way into the interviews, often leading to comedic disasters (and they happen off-set as well).
  • Prior to discovering the Pantheon, the three have had difficulties following the end of their show in the mortal world (since their former superior disowned them). They just happened to encounter the Pantheon by chance after being approached by Haruhi Suzumiya for something. Haruhi enjoyed their antics and offered to help them continue their show by doing a Pantheonic version of it. The three agreed to the offer, even if the schedules proved to be highly irregular (along with annoyance that they couldn't represent Talk Shows in general).
  • Although Pantheonic deities are sometimes called to be a guest on their show, mortals have also appeared as well. There is a decent chance that someone who went on the three's show will get ascended at a later point in time. Not that it matters to them much, since these kinds of people may be a guest on their show again if possible.
  • For whatever reason, regardless of if someone has powers or not, Space Ghost will ask his guests what superhero they are and what powers they have. It tends to get awkward for those who don't have powers and for those who do have powers, it isn't much better.
  • Space Ghost previously met Batman one time. During Batman's interview, S.G remarked that Batman could have his own talk show if motivated enough, though the Caped Crusader turned down the idea. There was also that time Zorak attempted to be "Batmantis" on the show (though only in a dream), though the mantis is willing to do it again if possible.
  • TOM went on the show one time and was surprised to encounter Moltar since the very early looks of the former resemble that of the latter (or Moltar may have hosted TOM's programming back then before TOM came along, it's hard to say). TOM did give the three credit for serving as a springboard for both Toonami (it was before anime was part of the block) and [adult swim].
    • The show also provided an early look at Dexter and the Powerpuff Girls one time. During their guest appearance, the girls told Space Ghost that showing a clip for less than a second didn't really count as a preview. The host responded that time issues was the reason, though the girls don't really buy into it.
  • They are all on really tense terms with French deities since Space Ghost attacked France over inventing the word montage (after seeing a montage full of his mishaps). Some (mainly the more dickish ones) went as far as refusing to appear on his show just to spite him, though the nicer French deities have attempted to reason with the production staff. Given S.G's attitude, it's proven difficult to say the least.
  • During the time that Nanoha Takamachi was a guest, S.G assumed that she was a popular star of an original franchise. She corrected him by saying that her popular adventures were originally rooted in a different outing. There was some awkward silence following that (since the three knew their original outings weren't going to be as popular as their talk show), though the rest of the interview didn't go as bad as some of the other ones.
  • The three all have very limited movement for some reason. This led to trouble when Inferno Cop was called in to guest star. During that interview, S.G called the cop out for "simply standing there for no reason at all" and an unexplained calamity between the two ensued. Those who were involved with the incident refuse to say anything about it.
  • The Spy has proven to be a significant disruption to the show thanks to his ability to disguise himself as anyone (including those involved with production, interviewees and Chad Ghostal, much to Tad's frustration). Even though Haruhi helped S.G get his show back on track, she hasn't acknowledged his requests to keep The Spy off the air, partially since Zorak and Moltar tend to enjoy S.G suffering from these kinds of incidents.
    • And on that note, devious pranksters such as Trollkaiger (and the Itazura Griefers to a lesser extent) have derailed the show several times. Most of the time, it's Space Ghost who gets upset whenever they turn up on the show uninvited.
  • The trio gets along pretty well with the South Park kids, given that both of them are groups who have a member that they can't tolerate much, but keep around anyways. Zorak in particular, enjoys Cartman's company and are seen talking in their free time.
    • To a lesser extent, this could be applicable to the Survivor Crew as well, as far as that "intolerable member of a group is kept for reasons" thing is concerned (though if anyone were to ask S.G about his group, he'd say that Zorak & Moltar are intolerable. The two think S.G is the intolerable one).
  • They have known a few gods prior to ascension thanks to having brief references to them on their talk show. Among the interviewees they had included Adam West, Weird "Al" Yankovic, Hulk Hogan, and Jerry Springer. S.G knows Homer Simpson due to interviewing the latter's superior and even watching bits and pieces of Homer's show (they have conversations whenever S.G isn't busy). Much to Luke Skywalker's bewilderment, Space Ghost somehow can't get Luke's name correct. James T. Kirk finds it odd that Moltar is writing fan-fiction about Star Trek. Even Tommy Wiseau was interviewed as S.G., Zorak, and Moltar were watching The Room. The three didn't like or understand the movie.
  • Zorak is largely known for his keyboard, which can produce a variety of sounds depending on what is happening. He's also the one who tends to talk to music-related guests whenever S.G isn't around. Zorak himself plays an electric guitar at times whenever he visits the House of Music.
  • Aside from their talk show, Space Ghost and Zorak, alongside their herald Brak, host a variety show. As of late though, only Zorak and Brak have done much of the work on that variety show (and Zorak is trying to find something for Brak just so the latter can shut up about not being ascended properly).
  • It doesn't happen often, but the three do become more dangerous if their original personalities come to surface. It really only happens if either the GUAG (in Space Ghost's case) or GUAE (as far as Zorak and Moltar are concerned) want them for more serious matters that don't pertain to the talk show.

    Sideshow Bob 
Sideshow Bob, Patron of Rake-Related Injuries (Robert Underdunk Terwilleger)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/200px-c-bob_1109.png
  • Theme Music: Cape Fear theme (or something similar to it)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A pair of big floppy shoes
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Monster Ex-Clown, Affably Evil Erudite Bastards, Recidivism, Revenge, The Chew Toy, Evil Redhead, Has Generally Been Targeting Bart, Even if Bob's Plans have been Ruined by Others
  • Domains: Retribution, Knowledge, Spite
  • Allies: The Penguin, Ratigan
  • Enemies: Bart Simpson, Homer Simpson, Marge Simpson, Krusty, Stewie Griffin, Billy, Isabelle
  • Commonality Connection with: Wile E. Coyote
  • Wary of: Norman Osborn
  • Dislikes: Chiaki Nanami, Travis Touchdown, Umaru Doma, anyone that likes (in his view) lowbrow entertainment
  • Bob originally served as Krusty's assistant and one who has a preference in high-class entertainment. Unfortunately, he became the victim of slapstick that happened on the show and his interests were not acknowledged in that stint. This made him hate Krusty, and to an even greater extent, Bart Simpson, who exposed him for a crime after Bob took over Krusty's show. Rakes are Bob's other archenemy; he has a life outside of Bart.
  • Originally the holder of Wicked Cultured, Sideshow Bob's title was changed for some unknown reason (most believe that it was a group of pranksters behind it). Naturally, when he found out that his new title represented slapstick and not something related to his interests, he was rather agitated to put it mildly.
  • He shares quite a few things in common with Wile E. Coyote. Both of them have intellectual quirks and are trying to defeat a prey that they consider inferior (Bart for Bob and the Roadrunner for the Coyote). They only talk about their escapades and don't exchange plans with each other whenever they meet.
    • Bob later found out that, on a darker note, he had a bit in common with Norman Osborn. Mainly, both were relatively decent people at first until a turn of events led them to be evil and have been constantly targeting someone (again, Bart for Bob and Peter Parker for Norman). While Bob had his family to support him and he even tried to be a nice person on occassion, Norman seems to have embraced his own insanity to torment Peter and others who have loved ones. Although Norman liked how Bob was tormenting the Simpsons family through trying to murder Bart, Bob doesn't want much to do with Norman and has kept the interactions between each other at an extreme minimum.
  • A highly notable trait of his is the big feet (this is what led to him getting busted the first time). If there is a use to it, it would be to crush grapes for wine. He sometimes goes to the House of Food to do just that. The wines are often served to villainous deities looking for something classy to drink.
  • As previously mentioned, Bob used to be a clown, but hated the job. Even if that's the case, that doesn't stop deities who are afraid of clowns, such as Billy and Wakko Warner, from opposing him by virtue of being an ex-clown (there's the evil thing as well, but that's a different matter).
  • Bob grew to dislike Stewie Griffin quite a bit after the baby kidnapped and tortured him one time. Of course, plans for payback against Stewie is in a lower priority for Bob compared to retaliation against Bart. To be fair though, Bart did get weirded out by what Stewie did in regards to Bob.
  • As someone who champions high culture, he has a distaste towards anyone that likes, in his view, inferior entertainment. Bob has been trying to get these deities to share his interests, but hasn't been really successful in that regard.
    • In an attempt to try and spread his highbrow interests further, Bob has been trying to convince some members of the House of Commerce to fund a new program that would be similar to his failed original attempt back at Springfield. Progress has been slow, but Bob is confident that it will work this time around.
  • Whenever he isn't planning revenge against Bart, Bob would visit the House of Knowledge to read up on some classic media. He would encounter a few other cultured villains there such as The Penguin and Ratigan on an infrequent basis, usually talking about their interests.
  • While Bob has still planned his revenge against Bart in the Pantheon, those plans have recently been thwarted by some more resourceful deities. Even these particular deities find it odd that Bob is still hellbent on defeating Bart, even if Bob's plans failed as a result of the interference of others.
  • Once again Bob hypnotizes Bart into becoming his apprentice and then made Bart into looking like him. The Simpsons try to find a way to save Bart before it too late. By the end The spell was broken when Bart started hearing Lisa cry for her brother back.
  • Deciden to make a visit to the House of Prophecy to see if he can get any positive news. He was frustrated upon learning that a rake would apparently be involved in ending his life. It goes without saying that Death Is Cheap in the Pantheon, but this only made Bob hate rakes (and his current title by extension) even more after that.
  • After enough time passed, Bob finally got his chance to kill Bart...over and over again, in fact. Unfortunately for Bob, that experience was short-lived and the Reanimator machine he used has apparently disappeared shortly thereafter. Despite that, Bob is still looking for a real victory against Bart.
  • Even though he's no longer Krusty's assistant, he still goes by the monkier Sideshow Bob rather than his real name, Robert Terwilleger. Of course, for simplicity's sake, most simply refer to him as Bob. Surprisingly enough, he's not angry that often if people call him Sideshow Bob; the anger only happens if someone reminds him of his clown past.

    William T. Riker 
William Thomas Riker, God of Significantly Improved Storylines (Will, Number One)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/riker_frakes_8603.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Starfleet Symbol
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Number One To Captain Picard, Gentle Giant, Badass Beard That Signified an Improvement in the Series, Guile Hero, Going to Holodeck Four, The Kirk, Happily Married To Deanna Troi, Lethal Chef, Not Taking Promotions, His Surname Being An Anagram of Kirk with An Added R, Deadpan Snarker, Ethical Slut, Military Maverick
  • Domain: Space, Law, Storyline Advancement, Good Receptions, Love
  • Herald: Deanna Troi (his wife)
  • Allies: Jean-Luc Picard, Worf, James T. Kirk, Spock, Leonard McCoy, Kathryn Janeway and Jonathan Archer, Hal Jordan, Captain Titus, Orion, Hellboy, James Raynor, Goliath
  • Enemies: Khan Noonien Singh, Arael, Necrons and Orks, Darth Sidious
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: David Xanatos
  • Ever notice when a series suddenly becomes better in quality? That's the work of William Riker, whose famous beard represented the moment where his series ultimately carved its own place in the Star Trek series. For such an achievement, and because he needed his XO to run the Enterprise-E to maximum efficiency, Jean-Luc Picard requested that Riker be ascended to the Pantheon. After much deliberation, the Court of the Gods agreed to his request.
  • Originally, he was something of an expy of famous Starfleet captain James T. Kirk, but with the beard came a newfound gravitas and sense of responsibility. Still, Riker considers Kirk something of a mentor and defers to his judgment whenever Picard is unavailable. Kirk is proud Riker ultimately became his own character and they remain good friends.
  • When last seen in the mortal realm, he had married Counselor Deanna Troi. The House of Love threw a big party to celebrate and has been trying to find a way to ascend Deanna as well.
  • Amazed that Kathryn Janeway and Jonathan Archer are also in the Pantheon as well. Janeway and Archer acknowledge it was through Riker's influence that their shows found a stable audience and lasted as long as they did and have recommended him in retaking his captaincy of the Titan, but Riker declines. He is happy enough serving Picard, who needs all the help he can get.
  • Was confused by Goliath for his Arch-Enemy David Xanatos for having the same voice. Once the mistake was cleared up, they became friends, with Goliath becoming advisor to Riker in battle strategy and philosophy.
    • Unfortunately, given the constant threats the Federation faces both inside and outside the Pantheon, Riker was forced into an uneasy alliance with Xanatos. Although Xanatos' intelligence and resources would be useful against the Federation's enemies, Riker knows that Xanatos would have something to gain at their expense. Goliath offered his assistance should Xanatos ever try something.
  • His wife Deanna was Mind Raped by Shinzon's Reman viceroy, causing him to develop an antagonism who rape their victims in their minds. For that reason, he has put Arael in his hitlist.
    • Speaking of the Reman viceroy, he once confused Orion and Hellboy for him due to his voice. Fortunately, the mistake was cleared up and they became good friends, gathering for combat training and drinks whenever they are able.
    • The battle with Shinzon has also made Riker wary of Darth Sidious, whose Death Stars are more powerful and destructive than the Scimitar.
  • Jim Raynor has become a good friend to Riker, seeing much of his XO Matt Horner in him. Until he can find a way to ascend him, Raynor often asks Riker to take command of the Hyperion whenever he goes on away missions. At first, Riker as reluctant but Picard advised him to take the Hyperion's bridge to keep his own captaining skills sharp.
  • Known for his tendency to play fast-and-loose with military protocols, he is steadfast allies with Hal Jordan and Captain Titus. Granted, Starfleet is only partially a military organization, but the three's actions regularly demonstrate how uptight and overly obsessed with rules and regulations militaries can be, especially the Ultramarines. Many heroic deities praise them for being more concerned with their missions than with how it would look on their records.
    • Thanks to intelligence gathered by Titus, Riker has become aware of the Necrons, who he sees as monstrous as the Borg, and the Orks, who are significantly more primitive and savage than the Klingons. Upon informing Picard of this, they have decided to upgrade the Enterprise with weapons and defenses in case a confrontation happens. On Riker's advice, Titus and Picard have also requested a formal meeting with the Emperor and his associates to discuss the possibility of an alliance between the Federation and the Imperium, not wanting to repeat what happened with the Dominion.

    Arnold Ernst Toht 
Arnold Ernst Toht, God of Mundane Scenes Shot As Creepy
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Screen_shot_2011-04-17_at_8_22_13_PM_7385.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The medallion scar on his right hand
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Ax-Crazy Nazi Torture Technician, Stab the Salad, Bespectacled Psycho, Obviously A Nazi, Annoying Laugh, Giggling Villain, Fastidious Gestapo Officer That's A Psycho for Hire, We Have Ways of Making You Talk, Killed By The Very Thing He Sought After
  • Domains: Nazism, Torture, Mystical Items, Interrogation
  • Allies: Pretty much any Nazi deity, (includes Millennium and Red Skull), SCP-542, Judge Doom
  • Headbutting Villains with: Ramses
  • Enemies: Indiana Jones, The Pillar Men, Steve Rogers/Captain America, the Basterds, Dr Ludvig Maxis, Moses, any Jewish god on principle (and those who opposes Nazis)
  • Fears: Any entity related to the Abrahamic God
  • Major Arnold Ernst Toht is a Nazi Gestapo agent, deeply loyal to Adolf Hitler. He was sent to secure the Ark of the Covenant, as the legends of the Ark suggest it will make Hitler's armies unstoppable. He ended up in conflict with Indiana Jones, all over said Ark.
  • As if being a dedicated Nazi wasn't bad enough, he's also a Torture Technician and really into it. Memorably he once spooked Marion Ravenwood by apparently getting torture equipment out, but it was just a coathanger. Seeing its reaction, he's decided to Troll his victims with tricks like these. Is also studying the House of Torture & Mutilation to refine his "craft".
  • Personally a skeptic in anything supernatural, but if his Fuhrer wills it he'll play the Ghostapo card. And given how he left the mortal plane, he's not as skeptical as he used to be. In modern times, he considers the Red Skull to be Hitler's successor and will gladly follow him to ensure the Nazis achieve world domination. The Skull has been giving him advice on how to better handle supernatural artifacts.
  • He is also willing to work with Millennium as they are a Nazi organization. While he believes their vampirism has proven useful for the Nazi cause, their goals aren't practical and he is more trying to steer them to a path that the Red Skull and other traditional Nazi officials find useful. SCP-542 finds most of his goals to be "boringly simple", but is willing to work with him as he was Nazis in general
  • As a Nazi, he has countless people who detest him, the Jews being the most obvious. Considering that the Ark of the Convenant was a sacred Jewish item, and one explicitly dangerous as The Bible describes, makes his decision to use it extraordinarily stupid. Toht defended himself by saying he didn't believe in it and he was ordered to by Hitler to get it, and people responded that it makes Hitler a moron. That only pissed him off more.
  • Because of being melted by the Ark of the Covenant, Toht has an enormous fear of any being in the pantheon who claims to be or is an angel in direct service of the God of Abraham. Or anyone who claims to be the Biblical God like YHVH. He has special loathing towards Moses, since he was the one who made the Ark in the first place. He's actually willing to work with Ramses because they have a common enemy, though it's tenuous given the Nazis and Ancient Egyptians wouldn't get along long term.
  • Captain America was pretty upset to learn that another Nazi has made it to the Trope Pantheon, and plans to sock it to him when Major Arnold Toht causes trouble again. Toht was deeply terrified to learn of the Basterds, who according to their own records shot Hitler and other high-ranking Nazis to Ludicrous Gibs. Dr Ludvig Maxis isn't happy to seem him in the pantheon either.
  • Seems fond of Judge Doom. Likely this is due to Doom's own Nazi-esque tendencies, shared sadism, the fact they both died melting away in a way they brought upon themselves, or they just really like each other's fashion sense.
  • Has a sister called Isla, who was a high-ranking Nazi like himself. She ended up trying to kill Indiana Jones to avenge her fallen brother, ultimately meeting her end in a violent plane crash. Arnold Toht really wasn't pleased to hear about this.

  • The Prince of Denmark who famously killed his father's usurper after a long period of time deciding, Prince Hamlet's spirit accidentally stumbles into the Pantheon. After finding out that he is the Trope Namer of two temples in the Pantheon, he was resurrect and ascend into the Pantheon.
  • One of the most contentious problems he was asked is what the heck is his age considering the fact that he is stated to be a student but remembers Yorick, man who died 23 years ago, in his famous monologue. He and his superior avoid this question whenever it was asked.
  • His indecision to not kill Claudius that ended up getting almost everyone killed isn't respected by many deities from Game of Thrones who are all scolding him for not seizing the chance to reclaim his rightful position.
  • His reunion with Ophelia, the woman that went insane because of him and the daughter of the man he accidentally killed, is a pretty tragic one. Ophelia, while still love Hamlet, can't forgive him for the murder of her father and brother while Hamlet is kneeling on the ground to beg for her forgiveness. The two of them broke off their relationship and left on bad term. However, Hamlet usually runs Ophelia's daily temple duty for her due to her insanity as a form of repentance.
  • Absolutely despises the Macbeths for their status as usurpers of the throne. The fact that they have many look-a-like didn't help the situation either.
  • Admits that he chuckles a little bit when seeing Bart Simpson's attempt to throw a play to get Moe Syzlak to commit his crime as a Shout-Out to him.
  • Was once visited by Deadpool because the merc heard about someone who also held a decapitated head and broke the fourth wall. Like most people, Hamlet is soon annoyed by Deadpool's behavior.
  • Him and Simba are frequently compared to each other due to the fact that the lion is basically a Lighter and Softer version of Hamlet. The two of them arranged a meeting with each other and actually got along pretty well. Hamlet wished Simba the best in ruling his kingdom while Simba holds Hamlet as a cautionary tells of himself.
    • Getting along with Simba, Hamlet of course despises Scar along with his lackeys and promise to turn them into a pelt whenever the prince came across the lion.
    • Seeing Mufasa on the cloud overwhelm Hamlet of the memory of his own father to the point that the prince drop to his knee and cry. Since then, he and Simba has been seeing Mufasa's grave and looking for any sight of him in the Pantheon.
  • Being responsible for Ophelia's situation, he isn't very welcomed by the good-aligned deities within the House of Love.
  • King Arthur and Hamlet has complicated relationship because while the King sympathize with his intention, Arthur dislikes his treatment of Ophelia and the people surrounding him that has nothing to do with Claudius.
  • A long running character, Hamlet's look has brought him many interesting interaction with many deities in the Pantheon.
    • Being Christian, responsible for Ophelia's insanity and sometimes looks like him, Shylock isn't Hamlet's biggest fan. The same story, minus the fact of being a Christian can be said for Romeo and Juliet and Othello.
    • Cinderella also isn't his biggest fan either due to the his treatment of Ophelia and for looks like her father-in-law. The same can be said for Stephen Strange and Peter Parker (for looking like his deceased father Richard.
    • Being the person who is sometime interpreted as two different people, this made him has some common ground with Jekyll and Hyde. The fact that one of their version looks the same is just a bonus.
    • Once scared the heck out of Faust because the latter thought that Mephistopheles AND a few version of himself has ascended into the Pantheon. Being Christian, Hamlet is absolutely disgusted with Faust action.
    • He and Alexander the Great get along surprisingly well for their share grief of their father being assassinated and shares look but Alexander usually criticizes Hamlet for his indecisiveness.
    • Discover a pleasant surprise when paying tribute to Edmund Dantes that the two of them looks similar.
    • A little bit freak out that he looks like the Dark Lord Voldemort and has entered an uneasy alliance with many Harry Potter deities to protect himself. A similar story happens to Jack Frost and Nicholas Saint North because of his voice.
      • This version of him also brings him many weird interaction. One of which is Ramses, whom he sympathize for losing a love one but disapprove of slavery.
    • Titania, Oberon and Puck absolutely refuse to interact with him due to many version of him looks like one of the mortals they met, or even Titania herself.
    • John Watson doesn't like to interact with him due to his ambiguous insanity as well as the fact that many versions of him looks like either Watson himself or Sherlock.
    • The Doctor also isn't his biggest fans after discovering that the two of them has a few look-a-like for his poor treatment of many people that wasn't involved with his father's murder.
    • Jessica Jones almost punched him because she thought that the Purple Man has ascended the Pantheon. She apologizes after clearing up the misunderstanding but still doesn't forgive Hamlet's treatment of the people around him that didn't play a role in King Hamlet's death.
  • To be or not to be. That is the question.

    Lucy (Whacked!) 
Lucy, Goddess of the Censor Box
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/88423_69868_8.jpg
Lucy, pictured during one of the few times she's wearing clothesClick here for how she usually walks around 
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: One of the censor bars she walks around with
  • Theme Song: Whacked! Theme Song
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Censor Box, Covers Always Lie, Extreme Omnisexual, Fighting Clown, Hidden Depths (business-savvy), Improbable Weapon User, Interspecies Fling (very brief), Ludicrous Gibs upon death, Really Gets Around, Regenerating Health, Scratch Damage if not armed, Seven Deadly Sins (Lust, in this case), Super Mode, You Gotta Have Blue Hair
  • Domains: Lust, Censorship, Game Shows, Cartoons
  • Allies: Juliet Starling, playboys who can back up their flirting, Mordin Solus
  • Enemies: Slaanesh
  • Opposes: Playboys who can't back up their flirting
  • Uneasy Alliance with: The House of Profession
  • Unknown Relationship: Panty Anarchy
  • When a demonic game show host named Van Tastic sought out contestants for a game show called Whacked!, it took on seven Toons, each one representing the seven deadly sins. Lucy represented lust, and constantly walked or ran around naked. As such, she was almost always presented as wearing censor bars. There aren't many other characters in fiction or people in real life so strongly associated with the Censor Box; thus was Lucy ascended, for better or for worse.
  • Though her temple is in the House of Theater, she's much more often found in the House of Love, especially the Lustful Acts and Lustful Behavior subhouses. She is a very promiscuous character, willing to "do it" with nearly anything with a sex drive.
    • We say "nearly" because, yes, there are exceptions. It is possible for her to be unsatisfied with her partner's...performance in bed — especially if they're...under-equipped, let's say — and if her interactions with Otto in this scene are evidence, she's not interested in pale, skinny, and/or lazy people, not to mention she seems disgusted by even the idea of (ahem) "bodily refuse". She also seems to dislike creatures with such bizarre anatomy as Toof.
    • Some are surprised to know there actually IS more to Lucy than her lust. She also seems to have a very authoritative attitude and sometimes demonstrates advanced knowledge of legal business. She'll likely analyze her audience — figurative or literal — to decide what she's going to wear for certain moments — and she is forced by the Court of the Gods to wear clothing whenever she's outside of her temple or the Lust subhouse. She has also once recited a long and accurately-detailed legal document based solely on memory, which is no small feat.
      • Her business savvy combined with her lustful nature makes her a source of confusion for the House of Profession. They're not sure what to make of her; she doesn't have the most clean reputation, but from what little they know of her Hidden Depths, she seems like she'd know how to make money if she were interested in that. They wonder if all this makes her a sort of "Bunny-Ears Lawyer"...
  • Lucy is aware she's far from the only "Lucy" in the Pantheon. Most of the other "Lucys" have expressed either embarrassment or disgust. This Lucy doesn't seem to care.
    • She also has a similar voice to certain other deities, which has similarly disturbed many of those deities and/or those who know them. One exception would be Juliet Starling — it's quite easy to mistake one for the other if you're simply going by their voices, especially due to their flirtatious personalities. They even can both fight, and when they fight their respective enemies, it ends in blood and gibs — some more gratuitous than others — though Lucy's style of fighting is very cartoonish compared to Juliet's. As well, despite Juliet's flirtatious nature, she's faithful to her boyfriend. This initially confused Lucy, since said boyfriend is now only a head. Of course, she then figured that they make it work somehow, and being well-versed in...private activities, she has a funny feeling she can guess how...
  • No one is certain how she and Panty Anarchy feel about each other, but there are rumors that they once "spent some time together" — or that they sometimes still do. These rumors are often brushed off as perverts' wishful thinking, and Lucy and Panty haven't said anything on the matter.
  • Many gods that are considered "casanovas" — such as Jack Horner — are delighted to meet a goddess that responds positively to their advances, though for that to last, they'd have to, let's say, perform well behind the scenes. There are those, of course, that are confused when Lucy responds to their flirtations with eagerness, and so might double back and leave, much to her frustration. But there are also those few that Lucy would decline for reasons already stated, as well as because they don't understand their own flirting because they don't have a sex drive.
    • There's one deity whose perversion disgusts even Lucy: Slaanesh. Slaanesh has done things even Lucy wouldn't dare to do in the bedroom, including some pretty horrible ones, all for the sake of feeling something. The lustful human does what she can to avoid any encounters with the depraved creature.
  • Mordin Solus was duly impressed to hear Lucy was capable of "doing the deed" with an anthropomorphic lion, even if she didn't particularly enjoy it. He said that if she ever needed to know about intercourse with certain species, she could talk to him. Lucy has him on speed dial.

    Sakamoto 
Sakamoto, God of Mundane Made Awesome (Slope Book Sakamoto, Swagamoto)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/79468l.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His glasses
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Parody Sue, Bishōnen, Ambiguously Human, Cold Ham, The Stoic, Chaste Hero, Friend to All Living Things, Crazy-Prepared
  • Domains: School, Cool
  • Allies: Good-aligned members of the School (especially Eikichi Onizuka), Squirrel Girl
  • Opposed by: Trollkaiger, Biff Tannen, Libby Chessler, Eliza & Neil Reagan, Randall Boggs
  • Weird Relations: Daffy Duck
  • Gakubun High School might simply be another Japanese high school on first inspection, with a selection of students that includes plain-looking ones, girls with an interest torwards love, and a number of delinquents. Of these students, only one of them is able to catch the entire school's attention and then some: Sakamoto. With great looks and lots of confidence, this cool student is able to get through anything in his own unique ways. Even if it's something extremely mundane, Sakamoto will end up performing that action in a very over-the-top way, even if he is very stoic on the surface.
  • Word about him reached the School of the Pantheon and a few mischievious students decided to greet him in a manner that would ensure with him getting humiliated on his first day. They decided to put up a large whiteboard eraser on top of the door that would fall onto Sakamoto as he opened it. Unfortunately for the pranksters, Sakamoto caught the eraser as he entered the room, making the girls present excited and the students who planned the failed prank were originally jealous of him as a result.
    • Of the benevolent members of the School that get along with Sakamoto, Eikichi Onizuka is greatly friendly towards him since Sakamoto has had a record of meeting delinquents and making their lives more interesting and Onizuka, a former delinquent, has made it his goal to help his students enjoy life. The two often hang out with each other and exchange stories of their own adventures.
  • Despite him being popular amongst those who have seen him, there are a few deities (namely persistent bullies) who outright refused to like him for what he is, even if those who were jealous of Sakamoto initially grew to admire him (such as the students that tried to prank him). The fact that Sakamoto has come across them a few times bullying some friends that he made and thwarted the bullies just made them even more spiteful at him.
  • Trollkaiger has tried multiple times to ruin Sakamoto's reputation with a variety of pranks. Unfortunately for them, his stoic attitude, combined with strange circumstances that never ruin his good looks, have made these pranks failures. The group despises him since not only does he not have any real reaction to the stuff they throw at him, but the fact that Sakamoto's admirers are sometimes around when Trollkaiger unleashes their pranks at him have made the group feel humiliated, especially when it's Sakamoto they want humiliated, preferably in front of a large crowd.
  • He doesn't really have much interest in romantic relationships despite getting a varied set of female admirers (and there's a number of guys who are interested in Sakamoto as well). The fact that his sexual knowledge surpasses that of a normal teenager according to a health education exam that he took just made it a little more ironic.
  • If Light Yagami could take a potato chip and eat in the hammiest way possible, then Sakamoto could potentially take a different potato chip and eat it in the most stylish way possible. At best, the two are only indifferent towards the other and at worst, there's a general dislike between them.
  • Daffy Duck, of all beings, has a very strange relation with Sakamoto. Daffy has had a tendency to be hungry for attention, only to have these efforts be for naught. Sakamoto has gotten a lot of attention simply by doing things in a cool way. Daffy has often tried to get that attention directed at him, but to no avail. At some point, Daffy met up with Sakamoto and talked about how the duck tended to get upstaged by Bugs despite the Wabbit not trying as hard to get the attention (as Daffy puts it, Bugs simply munches on a carrot and people love the wabbit for it). Sakamoto had no ill will towards the duck despite that and while Daffy is still a bit resentful of Sakamoto's popularity, he has some sort of respect towards him since the talk.
  • He is good friends with Squirrel Girl given that they have gone through a variety of strange situations and solved them in equally wacky ways. Sakamoto has also taken a liking to the squirrels that she keeps and helps her take care of them every now and then.
  • A few deities have wondered whether or not he is actually a human considering, among other things, how extremely perfect he is and the fact that has actually teleported some short distances a few times before. There have been a number of guesses on that (one of these guesses is that he's apparently Bayonetta's son), but it's safe to say that many of these guesses can be downright crazy.
    • Even Denzel Crocker got in on the guessing game and, unsurprisingly, believed that everything that happens because of Sakamoto is the result of fairies. Even amongst the already bizarre guesses of Sakamoto's true identity and why strange things happen the way they do when he's around, it's one of the more ridiculous ones and has been considered by many to be a very unlikely possibility.
  • Some deities have expressed interest in a movie based on Sakamoto's adventures. Whether or not it can get made is an uncertain possibility. And then there's the issue of whether or not the theoretical movie will actually have him as the main character since some of the scripts proposed focused on someone else that Sakamoto met at different points (with those scripts telling the story from that person's perspective).
  • Traveling to outer space happens to be something of interest for Sakamoto. If anything, it's possible for deities to imagine space-centric adventures that Sakamoto will take part of. For the time being, astronauts such as Olimar have been visited by Sakamoto, mostly in relation to what kind of planets are out there.

  • Pitied by: Princess Cadance
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Mrs. Robinson
  • At long last, Mrs. Robinson had succeeded in bring in graduate Benjamin Braddock into the Pantheon, and it was completely unintentional. He and girlfriend Elaine were figuring out what to do with their lives after escaping their parents. It just so happened that the two stumbled upon the Pantheon. The Court of the Gods acknowledged his wedding crashing techniques and decided to allow them entry into the Pantheon. Their happiness was short-lived when they walked into Mrs. Robinson who went out of hiding to confront them.
  • It didn't take long before a restraining order was slapped on Mrs. Robinson. Yet the rivalry continues. Mrs. Robinson now has a good number of deities who would love to break up the two. Ben and Elaine now attempt to keep together lest they repeat the fate of their parents.
  • Ato-ko and Kotonoha were assigned the task of breaking up the two. Their influence was felt on the couple in the form of mysterious webbing, death traps upon Elaine and people designed to keep the two apart. Ben and Elaine have trained themselves to avoid such roadblocks at all cost.
  • The two decided to keep notes on how to maintain a happy relationship, turning to Adams family for advice. The gothic beauties told them to stay honest with each other and they will do alright.
  • The couple next went to Ms. Elizabeth and Darcy to see how closely related they were to each other. From what they gathered, the two did have a couple of things in common.
  • Lastly, they went to the one couple who may have have screwed up their relationship as many times as they did. Harry surmised that this was due to their different genders. Sally instead encouraged them to stick together, noting it took them years to finally figure things out.
  • Ms. Bodewig has also tried vouching for the two. She was amused with their Wacky Marriage Proposal and hope that the two can stick with their relationship.
  • Ben's time with Mrs. Robinson developed a hatred of women who manipulate men to be their girlfriend. The representative Raynare has not joined in breaking up the two, but would love to see the mother get back with him in increase her influence in the Pantheon.
  • Does not think of his relationship with Mrs. Robinson as funny in any case. Most deities agree with this, especially later on in the film. Has called out the Kankers on their behavior towards the Eds. Of course he wouldn't dare call them out in person lest he faces their wrath.
  • Has started to have double dates with Tony and Maria, a couple who are coming to terms with their own odd ascension. Ben wanted to learn how to do better at social interactions as he can be seen as an Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist. Both hope to help each other to strength each others' relationships.
  • Princess Cadance was a useful measurer of one's love for another. While Ben decided not to know his exact measure of love more Elaine, he did ask the unicorn to help him find ways to improve it.

  • Pitied by: Hawkeye Pierce
  • "For many years, I have observed various stories throughout the fifth dimension. I have taken viewers through The Twilight Zone, given them a peak at the Night Gallery and has hosted as well as written various other works through my untimely death. And yet death was not the end of me. It has taken me to a new dimension as vast as space, and as timeless as infinity. It serves as a melting pot of various other figures from other worlds. With my return, I now describe my own time with other deities. It is an area which the residents call...the Pantheon."
  • Born in the state of New York, my life changed abruptly while serving in World War II. It is not an experience I would want anyone else to feel, but it has done a great deal in my perception of humanity. By exposing the darkest underbelly of humanity, I hope that viewers can learn to become better people.
    • While I do not condemn those who reside at the House of War, I have often tried my best to dissuade others from either entering the house of setting up a temple there.
    • With that said, there should be a special place in hell for those who fight not for their ideals, but to make a profit. Unfortunately, there is a deity just for those people, and he just happens to love it. Still, though Sundowner's demise did not end his practice, I await the day that he receives karma for encouraging death.
    • Then there is a mutant who believes that war will bring out the strong to rule the land. Yet there is no guarantee that anyone would be alive to witness this vision, nor may there be a land worth living in. Indeed, I believe war should only be fought for a resolution that is best for the planet. En Sabah Nur may depict me as weak, but I see greater strength in those who resist their most primal urges.
    • It has appears that Hawkeye Pierce sympathizes with my disdain for war. A surgeon during the Korean War, his comedic nature belies a fear for the horrors of war... as do I. It is not a subject Hawkeye would actively talk about nor will I force him to do so.
  • There was a time when I had entered the Pantheon as the God of Horror Hosts, but that role ended up at the hands of the Crypt Keeper. Contrary with various reports, I was quite content with the change of power, even serving as a follower. Alas, my stories amassed a fanbase sizable enough to strike out on my own. Though I carved a name out for myself for shows without main characters.
    • There was another of my former followers that eventually made her way to the Pantheon. Elvira was always a fan of my work and it was my pleasure to welcome her into the Pantheon. Despite her urges, I insist that we keep our relationship professional.
  • I have always found it intriguing to see others in the real world transported into the Pantheon. One of my closest counterparts is Alfred Hitchcock. The director of various famous movies, he was even the host of his own anthology series. It predates my series by four years. Some of his followers claim that this basis should reward the title to him, to the chagrin of my own followers. With that said, we prefer to discuss our series over arguing which one is superior.
  • Many have been led to believe that my detest of war means that I believe the war against Nazism was unjustified. This cannot be further from the truth. As a Jew myself, I had a special urgency to reject that philosophy. In fact, some of my best works have been critical of the brand. It is with great regret that there are as many Nazi deities as they are now. I wish to eradicate the brand, and I have no doubt they wish to do the same to me.
    • No, I do not find the Downfall Hitler to be funny at all. Desensitizing the group does the world no favors.
  • I have also rallied against the evil of racism in America. At that time, segregation was widespread throughout the country. While that practice has been outlawed throughout the land, I strive to continue to fight for equality. It had come to my attention that a few have been hampering my efforts, particularly Calvin Candie and Stephen.
  • The Pantheon has provided a unique opportunity to discuss my works with various other characters. For example, I asked Mr. Scrooge on my take on A Christmas Carol. He felt the story to be too preachy. With that said, that was a nice reception than many others who are horrified at the prospect of a unified planet. While I understand the worry, I felt that it was necessary to find a better understanding to prevent further conflict.
    Rod Serling: Up beyond the Pantheon. Beyond the vastness of the multiverse, up there is an entity of writers. Ones who will continue to write and rewrite stories of our journeys, our triumphs and our failures. All while there is still an Earth that exists. Forever rebooting... in The Twilight Zone.
