Intermediate Gods

    Arnold Schwarzenegger & Sylvester Stallone 
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, Gods of Action Movies (Arnold: Arnold Strong, Der Governator, Ahnold, Arnie) (Sylvester: Sly)
  • Intermediate Gods
  • Symbol: Both of them shirtless, holding up machine guns.
  • Alignment: *insert law scale here* Good
  • Portfolio: Action Hero, One-Man Army, Lots of shooting, Pre-Mortem One-Liner, Heroic Build, The Ahnold (named after Arnold, but sometimes both are targeted, Papa Wolf (Arnold)
  • Domains: Theater, War, Justice
  • Avatar of: The Terminator, Conan the Barbarian, Douglas Quaid (Arnold) Rocky Balboa, John Rambo (Sylvester)
  • Allies: Chuck Norris, Jackie Chan
  • There was one time that they descended to the mortal realm during the religious event that is Contra, in which they agreed to pose as the mortals' models for the hero. Thus, Bill Rizer and Lance Bean became avatars of Arnold and Sylvester.
  • If you see Arnold with a kid, don't mess with the kid or Arnold will fuck you up so hard you're gonna need more coffins to bury your remains.
    • Note that while we never see Sylvester do it with a kid, it's not a good idea to assume that he doesn't do it.
  • One day, while Sylvester was busy eating cookies in the House of Food, Arnold called him, but Sylvester was still munching his cookie (not on purpose), causing Arnold to yell "PUT THAT COOKIE DOWN!". That line became a hit and it was adapted by the House of Music into a Stupid Statement Dance Mix.
    • Turns out that Arnold was trying to warn Sly that Revolver Ocelot had poisoned one of the cookies. Good thing Sly put it down before it's too late.
  • Once, a fight was organized to see who was stronger. It ended in a double KO.
  • After stumbling upon Excalibur's theme song, Arnie immediately passed down a law in California to NOT let Excalibur enter the state, for the sake of his and the people of California's sanity.
  • Arnold's avatar as "The Terminator" once fought against RoboCop in a Death Battle. Robocop's far superior armor and ability to last everything that the Terminator couldn't was the reason for his victory.
  • Arnie is also known for his gigantic "SHUT UUUUUUUUUUUUUPPPPP!!!!"
  • Stallone was also known to have once possessed the rights to portray Judge Dredd. However, due to the lackluster reception, even Stallone can understand why Dredd would rather forget that one time he showed his face to the public, even if it was Sly's face.
    • With his signature characters Rocky and Rambo ascending, Sly is happy to finally be directly represented in the Pantheon.
  • Arnold has big preference on chopper's for aerial transportation. He tends to tell people to "GET TO DA CHOPPA"
  • Arnold grimaced to find André the Giant in the House of Combat. Why do you ask? He explained that the two found themselves at the same town and decided to go out for dinner. However, André was known to insist on paying for all meals he was in, and Arnold tried to do the paying once while André was in the bathroom. When the giant found out, he carried Arnold away like he was a child and went to pay the bill. Needless to say, no one has ever tried the trick after that.
  • The extraterrestrial deities who were unfortunate enough to watch Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot went to Stallone to say he was right in calling it "one of the worst films in the entire solar system".
  • Both have one deity that prefers to deny having been portrayed by them, Mr. Freeze in Arnie's case and Judge Dredd for Sly.

BRIAN BLESSED, God of Merriment (That Man Who Shouts A Lot, BRIAN BLESSED, Prince Vultan)

Carol, Goddess of Hating Celebrations and Mean People With Kind Personas (Mom)

    Christian Bale and Tom Hardy 
Christian Charles Philip Bale and Edward Thomas 'Tom' Hardy, The Gods Who Undergo Radical (And Insane) Changes For Their Roles
Left: Christian Bale; Right: Tom Hardy
  • Intermediate Gods
  • Symbol: A Photo Of Hardy and Bale As Bane and Batman
  • Alignment: Varies, Depending On The Role
  • Portfolios:
  • Domains: British/Welsh Actors, Films, Heroes and Villains
  • Ascended Characters:
  • Other roles:
  • Allies: Most of the House of Theatre, Adam West
  • Enemies: Who doesn't like these two?
  • Honorary Membership In: House of Heroes and Leadership for Christian, House of Crime for Tom, House of Villains for both men.
  • In General:
    • Plans to ascend both men into the Pantheon had began following Christian Bale and Tom Hardy's portrayals of Batman and Bane in Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, of which Hardy's portrayal of Bane was met with great acclaim. In the one time that both men agreed on anything, Batman and Bane themselves had put forth their endorsements, Bane being a fan of Hardy's work, while Bruce enjoys Bale's films, quite possibly the only thing those two agree on.
    • In fact, the first visitor to their temple was Bane himself, who shook Hardy's hand and thanked him for doing his character justice on the big screen. "Gracias, Señor Hardy. Gracias." Hardy was thankful of the praise, given that he was a fan of the comics. While people tend to rip on Hardy for not adopting Bane's signature accent, Bane found it...interesting, yet amusing and menacing at the same time. The downside is that Hardy had actually damaged his body whilst bulking up for the role of Bane.
    • Both men played their fair share of villains, the most infamous being that of Patrick Bateman and Walter Wade for Bale, whereas Hardy's known for playing the Kray Twins and Bane. For their works, both men were given honorary membership in the House of Villains.
  • Christian:
    • Met Adam West in the Pantheon the day after his ascension. Like many others, Bale mourned his mortal passing. He was also humbled when Adam praised his portrayal of Batman in the Dark Knight Trilogy.
    • Sean Bean was the next person who visited Bale. Both men worked together in Equilibrium, and congratulated Bale on his ascension. Sean also voiced his desire to work with Hardy on a film project (and one hopefully where he doesn't die in). Hardy look forward to the day.
    • Bale received an unexpected visitor...make that four in the form of the March sisters. Turns out that one of Bale's acting gigs was that of 'Laurie' Lawrence in the 1994 film version of Little Women. The March sisters were expecting a boy, but instead found a grown man. Had it not been for the fact that Bale is a happily married man, then the sisters would've tried their best to court him for their own.
    • Pocahontas gives Bale odd looks whenever he is around her. Maybe it's because he sounds a lot like Thomas, who was John Smith's best friend and fellow colonist.
  • Tom:
    • For the record, Hardy considers his role of Shinzon as his Old well as his Berserk Button. The last person who had mentioned that to Hardy, he donned the Bane mask and broke the poor schmuck's spine. Picard agrees it's best left forgotten.
    • Most of the members of the House of Crime and House of Villains are huge fans of Hardy, given his portrayals of the Kray Twins and Charles Bronson (the prisoner, not the actor). So much so that the deities of the House of Crime has made Hardy an honorary member of both houses, with all the privilages.
    • His role of Mad Max had won him recognition on par with his portrayal of Bane. The post-apocalyptic deities (i.e., The Courier, The Sole Survivor, the Four Hokuto Brothers, to name a few) love the film so much so that there is an unspoken rule that none of the deities harm Hardy.
    • The Venom Symbiote has become excited whenever Hardy got by, as the actor is the closest to his soulmate Eddie Brock in the Pantheon.

    Kenji Fujikido/Ninja Slayer 

Kenji Fujikido, God of Introductory Awesomeness (Ninja Slayer, The Machine of Vengeance, Bane of Soukaiya)
  • Theme Song: Back in Black; Naraku Within (whenever he's in battle)
  • Intermediate God
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, though he will not align himself with evil beings.
  • Symbol: A stylized version of his face engraved on a red shuriken
  • Porfolio: Ninja who Hunts Other Ninja, Big Entrances and Exits, Red Is Sorta Heroic, Struggling to Fight with an Inner Evil, Seeking Revenge and Enjoying It, Complete Lack of Subtlety in Ninjitsu, YEEART!
  • Domains: Wrath, Vengeance, Possession, Death
  • Allies: Ryuko Matoi & Senketsu, Scorpion, Naruto Uzumaki, Ragna the Bloodedge, Torin, Garterbelt, Inferno Cop, Afro, Kratos, Batman, The Bride, Guts
  • Neutral Towards: Any ninja who is good or has good leanings
  • Enemies: Any ninja who is evil or has evil leanings, Quan Chi, Naraku, Diavolo
  • Not So Different From: Sasuke Uchiha
  • Unknown Rival: Might Guy
  • Fujikido Kenji was the victim of an attack that resulted in his wife and child killed. He would have been permanently dead as well had it not been for a ninja soul called Naraku Ninja. Thanks to that, Fujikido has become the ruthless Ninja Slayer. Everytime he gets involved in battle, things will get violent and hammy (the latter mostly because Ninja Slayer usually is the one to introduce himself to his foes before they start battling).
  • The former High Priest of Ragna the Bloodedge, Ninja Slayer made his entrance to the Pantheon with an explosive entrance and followed up his greeting by screaming "YEARRT!" and assaulting some poor ninja mook, cuing another explosion. He was given the title of Incoming Ham almost instantly after that.
  • Currently on a quest to kill every evil ninja in the Pantheon. Several have told him to forgo vengeance, but he's not budging. What he doesn't know is that they're trying to tell him that he's in a place where Death Is Cheap.
  • Even though his temple is in the House of Theater, he spends part of his time (aside from fighting other ninjas, obviously) stealing sushi from the House of Food and resting in various other locations where not much is happening. Many have reported to seeing birds perch on his scarf every so often.
  • The only kind of people he hates more than evil ninjas are those who hurt children, as well as those who pick on the innocent. Doing so will incur his wrath and bring about an excruciatingly painful death.
  • One of the only ninjas he's on good terms is Scorpion, who also knows the feeling of losing those he loves and trying to avenge them. He also likes his use of his grappling rope, which reminds him of his spear. The fact that he's technically undead curbs any remaining ill will Ninja Slayer has for the specter.
    • Another ninja he has befriended is Naruto, whose actions of heroism have changed his opinion on ninjas. Naruto himself thinks that Ninja Slayer can make peace with his Enemy Within, much like his resolve with Kurama.
  • Is well aware of Sasuke's descent into madness for reasons similar to his, though he doesn't feel like Jumping Off the Slippery Slope anytime soon.
  • Hates Naraku, since he shares the same name as the force inside him who's trying to make him give into his bloodlust. There's something else that he doesn't like him, but he doesn't know what...
    • Another person that he despises is Diavolo, whose plans to kill his daughter completely go against his quest to avenge his family's deaths.
    • Despite sharing the same voice as Naraku and Diavolo, Ninja Slayer gets along much better with Torin, who's trying to make him abandon his quest for revenge and use his powers for more altruistic reasons.
  • Guy is currently preparing a match between him and Ninja Slayer to see who's better at making a Dynamic Entry, though Ninja Slayer hasn't really been paying that much attention to him compared to some of the other ninjas.
  • Has been noted to sound like a few others, most of all like Garterbelt. When the priest heard about the similarities in their voices, he hired Ninja Slayer to hunt ghosts, and he obliged. On one of his missions he found Scanty and Kneesocks having sex, to which he promptly responded:
  • Found a good friend in Inferno Cop, who sympathizes him for reasons similar to his own. The two often have friendly sparring matches, complete with explosions, though most who watch them fight have no idea what they're watching.
  • At some point in time, he came to hear of Guts, another man driven by revenge who has fought evil in a terrible world and had to deal with his own Enemy Within that wants to turn Guts into an absolutely ruthless killing machine. Both Guts and Ninja Slayer have become fairly good friends due to that, though the latter wonders if the world that Guts resides from is potentially even in a worse state than Neo-Saitama.
  • Some have pointed out that he is a bit similar to Batman, Kratos, and The Bride, in addition to the aforementioned Scorpion and Ragna. Ninja Slayer is on good terms with them, partially since vengeance served as a key factor in their own adventures.
  • While no one has asked him yet, he has made it clear that he doesn't want to join the White Hats. He's an assassin, not a hacker.
  • YEEART! explosions

    Asagi Asagiri 
Asagi Asagiri, Goddess of Alternating Voice Actresses (The Wandering Protagonist)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Pair of handguns and a large flail
  • Theme Song: Asagi GO FIGHT!, Asagi Metamorphism, Rockin' Princess, Asagi My Love, White Canvas (after the success of her fan club)
  • Alignment: Seemingly changes between Neutral Good and Chaotic Neutral (actually just Neutral Good)
  • Portfolio: The Unreleased Star, Guns Akimbo, Constantly Changing Voices, Split Personality and/or Multiple Asagis (Actually just the latter), She WILL Get Her Game, Early-Bird Cameo, Pretty in Mink, Bonus Boss
  • Domains: Guns, Cameos, Unreleased Games, Voices
  • Followers: Many other characters who have a change in actors.
  • Allies: Killia, Usalia, Seraph Lamington(?), Adell, Rozalin, Flonne, The Prinnies, Valvatorez, Nova Terra, The Cutie Mark Crusaders, Muse (Partiuclarly Kotori Minami, one of her voice actresses), Teana Lanster, Mami Tomoe, Noel Vermillion
  • Opposes: Zetta
  • For a long time, Asagi was hailed as the Goddess of Vapor Ware, and eventually ended up in The Fallen, but was moved to the Purgatory due of the support of her fans. Everyone waited for the arrival of the fabled Makai Wars... until one day, Asagi decided to try to take over the House of Gaming, demanding that she needs proof of that. What was weird was that Asagi was also in the Purgatory at the same time. Eventually the Asagi got sick of waiting and almost blew up House of Gaming... until she got shot by another Asagi.
    • As it turned out the third Asagi was the real Asagi. She then explained that all of her supposed Hostile Show Takeovers, the reason why she was thrown in the Fallen, was not her doing, as she has been stuck in Veldime due of a curse placed by Zetta what prevents her from becoming the main character until she becomes stronger. Instead, all of the Asagi cameos outside of Makai Kingdom, Disgaea 2 and Disgaea 5 were clones who have been trying to take over her spot as the true Asagi. When judges noticed that how different the real Asagi is for the clones, they decided to release the Asagi from Purgatory (Identified as "Prinny Asagi") and placed the real Asagi in the Pantheon.
  • If her title wasn't clear, she has had many, many different seiyuus voicing hernote . And while most of them are due of her many clones, not even the real Asagi can decide on one voice.
  • Nova Terra was rather glad to see that she managed to finally find her way out of the Purgatory, even if she doesn't have her game yet. Asagi was happy to hear about the compliments.
  • She gets along with other magic-oriented gunwomen like Teana, Mami and Noel.
  • The Cutie Mark Crusaders were a little upset that they had to say good bye to the Asagi they've known for so long. especially since said Asagi turned out to be rather heroic and sympathetic, clone or not. That said, they still ended up befriending the real Asagi and will continue to support as they did her clone, congratulating her on her ascension and hoping that she eventually gets her game. Asagi herself is touched by their kindness and sees their newly earned Cutie Marks as an inspiration and hope for her future game.
  • To say that she hates Zetta would be an understatement. Not only did he get her game cancelled and got her stuck in Veldime for a very long time, but his actions ultimately lead to her clones running lose among the Nippon Ichi multiverse and the Pantheon. Zetta doesn't really understand how any of that is his fault.
  • There was a long-lasting question how one of her Evilities, "Main Character R.", works. As in, what does it means to one be an Overlord? After some testing, it turns out it means that the target needs to have a title of Overlord note .
  • After years of her not getting her game, she seemed to have finally gotten her chance... as a mobile game. Her opinion can be summed as "Screw it, I take it regardless."

    Robert Downey, Jr. 
Robert John Downey, Jr., God of Career Resurrection
  • Theme Song: Back in Black by AC/DC
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A Shot Of Downey As Either Tony Stark, Sherlock Holmes, Or Charlie Chaplin. Alternatively, his mug shot
  • Alignment: Originally Chaotic Good, now Lawful Good
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Acting, Recovered Addicts, Comebacks
  • Ascended Characters Include: Tony Stark/Iron Man, Charlie Chaplin, Sherlock Holmes
  • High Priest: Jackie Earle Haley
  • On Good Terms With: Most of the deified actors and directors, including Samuel L. Jackson (fellow MCU actor), Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Johnny Cage
  • Rivals: BRIAN BLESSED (ham-wise)
  • Enemies: Carol/Mom
  • Johnny Cage once told his ex-wife and daughter, "You can't fake a comeback." In the case of one Robert John Downey, Jr., no truer words were ever spoken. It's because of what he had gone through, surviving addiction, stints in jail and rehab, and once again rising back to prominence on the silver screen, that the Pantheon immediately took notice. The ascension notice came soon after.
  • Tom Hardy knows what it's like to make a comeback. Unlike RDJ, who suffered substance abuse which damaged his career, it was following taking a part in Star Trek: Nemesis that his own career stalled. Interestingly enough, Hardy was slated for the post of Career Resurrection, but declined, opting to share his current position with Christian Bale.
  • Tony Stark's apprehension in having Downey portray himself was evident. Of course, that all changed when the film came out. Even Stark was forced to eat some humble pie and admit that Downey was...perfect for the role. As Cinema Wins put it, he "made this genius billionaire his own." As proof of this, he ad-libbed the "Jericho speech" in the first movie.
    • Sherlock Holmes also holds Downey in high regards (along with his other avatar), due to bringing his exploits on the big screen, which resulted in a positive reception and Holmes' seal of approval. The ongoing debate now is who done the role better: Downey or Cumberbatch.
    • Say what you want about Downey's portrayal of Charlie Chaplin, but the deified Tramp and his granddaughter/High Priestess thoroughly enjoyed Downey's performance.
  • Ocasionally seen locked in ham-to-ham combat with BRIAN BLESSED. While Downey loses most of the matches, it's all in good fun.
  • Endeared himself to the deities who have children as well as the deified children themselves due to his visit to a London children's hospital during the London film premier of Captain America: Civil War.
  • Always wanted to work with Steven Spielberg on a film project. Spielberg would had refused had it been Downey during his earlier phase. But after seeing him make such an impact (and remaining clean and sober), Spielberg is considering the idea of working with Downey.
  • Don't question his shoes. Even gods have height issues to overcome.

    Sean Connery 
Sir Sean Connery, God of Film Improvement and Pointing Guns at the Viewer


    Adam West 
Adam West, God of Those Who Parody Their Roles (The Grey Ghost, Mayor West, TV's Adam West, Catman, The Galloping Gazelle, The Fearless Ferret, Proto, The Bright Knight and many more)
  • Demigod (but revered as an Intermediate God)
  • Symbol: His 1960's Batman outfit
  • Alignment: Neutral Good normally and in his Batman-esque roles, Chaotic Neutral as Mayor West
  • Portfolio: those casted in specific roles and parodying to almost Self-Deprecation levels (Trope Namer). Self-Parody.
  • Domains: Acting, Parodies
  • High Priests: George Takei and William Shatner.
  • Allies: Batman, Bruce Lee, Timmy Turner, Kim Possible, Ron Stoppable, Johnny Bravo, many Star Trek gods. Also has favors from every Batman god, good and bad.
  • One day, Emmet, God of Lego, was preparing another LEGO Batman story, and decided to look into Batman's files. Upon watching and researching the 1960's series of Batman, he decided to get Adam West to come up. Upon seeing Batman, Adam West humbly agreed. Thus Emmet personally built him a temple in the House of Theater, even creating a special level in the LEGO Batman game to replicate the old show.
  • Adam's character fluctuates every now and then. He's either a star of an old show Batman used to watch (Grey Ghost), Mayor of Quahog (Mayor West), an old hero from a kid's show (Catman, Galloping Gazelle or Fearless Ferret), etc. Either way, it's a sight to be hold. The Council of Cloudcuckooland loves him for it.
  • Has met up with Bruce Lee, due to a time during his Batman days when Bruce was a sidekick that went by the name of Kato. When gods learned about this role, they started watching the show again just to see Lee in action absolutely shocked to believe that was Bruce Lee before he became famous. Bruce...would rather not remember that part of his past.
  • Is taken aback by many of the costumes that the Batman Rogue Galley wear: most specifically, he's amazed why the Joker doesn't have a white powdered mustache on. He also wonders why Batman has stopped dancing the Batusi, nor has shark repellent.
  • Whenever there's a production of a super hero parody in the House of Theater, you can bet that Adam West will be there.
  • Fully ascended to the Pantheon on June 9th 2017, leaving behind a worthy legacy and many loved ones. His ascension came with the Main House shining the Batman Signal across the Pantheon underneath a night sky.

    Brian O'Conner 
Brian O'Conner, God of Characters That Surpassed Their Portrayers
  • Theme Song: "See You Again" by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth.
  • Demigod (Lesser God when teaming up with Dom)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, with Lawful shades
  • Portfolio: Lasting Longer Than His Own Portrayer and Retiring from the Automobile Scene With Praise, Former Protagonists, Nerves of Steel, Showing the Middle Finger, Irish Names, FBI Agents, Obfuscating Stupidity, Becoming the Mask.
  • Domains: Law, Good, Cars, Trickery, Travel
  • Followers: Coach, Graham Jarvis, Agent Philip Jeffries
  • High Priestess: Sarah Jane Smith
  • Allies: Dominic Toretto, Luke Hobbs (Avatar of The Rock), Kurtis Stryker, Shinnosuke Tomari/Kamen Rider Drive, Kyoichiro Kuroi/Kamen Rider 3, Omar Little, Mulder and Scully, Iroh, Aku, Zato-1/Eddie
  • On Good Terms With: Every Good Deity in the House of Justice
  • Enemies: Every Evil aligned deities in the Houses of Crime and Justice
  • On the Hit List of: Rosco P. Coltrane
  • Annoys: Inspector Clouseau
  • Respects: AJ Styles and the Bullet Club (to an extent)
  • Formerly a detective for the LAPD, Brian was sent undercover to investigate a series of heists later revealed to be the doings of a street racing crew led by Dominic Toretto. However, his work eventually developed into a brotherly bond with Dom and a full-blown relationship with Dom's sister Mia. Ultimately he abandoned his own cover to call for medical attention for a wounded crew member, though this left him on the outs with the Toretto clan for years while he climbed his way into the FBI… until he sacrificed his own career to bust them out of confinement, returning to the family and eventually having a son with Mia.
  • His ascension is unusual, given the final fate of his portrayer. The man who provided his avatar died in a high speed crash, while Brian himself quietly retired with the blessings of the rest of the Toretto crew. He was welcomed by his best friend and honorary brother Dominic, who was overjoyed to see his partner again. Things were a bit strained as Brian was disappointed with his brief Face–Heel Turn:
    Brian: Roman told me what happened with Cipher. I still can't believe you of all people went heel on our guys. You're the one who's always talking about the importance of family.
    Dom: Did he also tell you my son was on the line?
    Brian: He did. But Dom, you could've at least given Letty a heads up before you made your move. Especially if your big counter-plan was to go to the guy who killed Han and ask his family for help.
    Dom: The Shaws had a score to settle with Cipher. I may be a hardass, but if building a bridge with an enemy can benefit my family, I got you in a second. You know that. Besides, you can't tell me you wouldn't have done the same thing for Jack and Mia.
    [Taking a moment, Brian chuckles, conceding the argument.]
    Brian: Yeah. Glad to be one.
  • He's no longer running the streets through automobiles, but he's still good friends with those who run with them, including Dominic, and therefore is now condecorated as an honorary member of the House of Travel.
  • Developed an Odd Friendship with The Rock who shares an avatar with Luke Hobbs, a more recent addition to Toretto's group. While they may not be the same, the wrestler occasionally joins in on the fun. A little muscle couldn't hurt.
  • His position is highly respected and has bipartisan support. Many heroes and villains alike have had their avatars die before the characters could. It's the reason that Iroh and Aku can agree upon the choice.
    • The Doctor is unique in that he is so old, he is forced to regenerate between different avatars. Naturally, many of his older ones are unable to survive his existence. Even his previous forms have to be played by different actors. It gets even weirder when Brian chose companion Sarah Jane Smith as his high priestess. The Doctor was grateful to see his old friend in person once more.
    • Zato underwent a transformation as a result of a death of his voice actor. During that time, the parasite took complete control over him. It was with Brian's help that he was able to truly outlive his creator and become Zato once more.
    • One of the few people who was not pleased with his fate was Inspector Clouseau. It was revealed that due to the death of his avatar, he underwent plastic surgery and became a villain instead. Oddly enough, his reboot version helped alleviate that blemish on his record.
  • O'Conner has a very strong sense of justice, and therefore dislikes corrupt authority figures. As a FBI Agent, he sends every report to the House of Justice. Even when he temporarily worked with criminals, he received a standing ovation when he first entered the area. Even Judge Dredd himself was complimentary towards him... a rare feat indeed.
    • Gets paired with Dirty Harry a lot as a result. Unlike most cops, he has no qualms about breaking the law in order to arrest criminals. Just don't make him admit that Brian's the better driver.
    • Kurtis Stryker likes his rough and tumble style of police enforcement, even if it means getting involved with certain criminals.
    • Not everyone was happy with the ascension. Rosco insists that the man should be arrested for reckless driving. His accusations were met with a steady stream of condemnation, pointing out his own failings as a cop.
    • Miko's strict adherence to the law compels her to arrest the man as well. Unfortunately, her steed is far too slow to ever hope to keep up with his car.
  • Certain Kamen Rider deities respect his driving skills to the point that Kuroi and Tomari are even willing to team up with him. Brian oddly doesn't feel out of place in that world. His world has put him through increasingly outrageous stunts.
  • A rarity among those who work in the House of Justice, Brian is able to move freely in the House of Crime with little difficulty. Much of that help comes from Omar Little, God of Justified Criminals. Some of his followers are associated with the Toretto clan's operations and were happy with Brian's efforts to make them more acceptable citizens. As such, anyone who wants to go after Brian will have to go through Omar. That's a threat no one in that house is willing to defy.
  • One thing that still confuses him are supernatural elements. There was a time when a couple aliens hijacked his vehicle. Thankfully, fellow FBI agents Mulder and Scully were there to help him out. After that adventure, Brian offered his services to them.

    Kaito Kuroba 
Kaito Kuroba, Divine Practitioner of Impossibly Awesome Magic Tricks (Kaito KID, Bakaito)
KID and Kurobanote 
  • Theme Music: You'll see the KID
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His hat and monocle
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Lovable Rogue, Phantom Thief, Minor Living Alone, Voice Changeling, The Trickster, Alliterative Name
  • Domains: Trickery, Personality, Magic, Performance
  • Herald: Konosuke Jii
  • Allies: Bugs Bunny, Oscar Diggs, Zatanna Zatara, Dorothy Albright
  • Rivals: Carmen Sandiego, Catwoman, Rouge the Bat, Arsene Lupin, The Spy
  • Enemies: corrupt law enforcement, Felicia Hardy/Black Cat.
  • Special Relations: Conan Edogawa
  • Not to be confused with: Kaito Kumon
  • Kaito Kuroba is a normal teenager with a normal life. At least, that was the case until he found out that his deceased father Toichi was a notorious thief known as Kaito Kid. With his father's murderers out to get a mysterious gem that can grant immortality, Kaito Kuroba takes on the identity of Kaito Kid in order to stop the organization from going any further with their goals. Since Kaito is a skilled illusionist, it would only make sense for that to translate into his heists, resulting in some unorthodox, yet impressive trickery. There's other forms of trickery that he does in his heists as well, such as disguising himself as another person (and yes, he can match that person's voice very well).
  • The House of Justice received a notice that the Chaos Emeralds were going to get stolen from the Treasures. There was a bit of surprise that Dr. Eggman wasn't going to be involved with that, but the various police officers and law enforcement decided to station themselves at the Treasures to make it less likely that the items in question get stolen once the potential thief arrives. Unfortunately, the officers found out that the thief already made their way inside and they had to rush to where the emeralds were at. The emeralds weren't present, but the officers could see a white hang-glider in the distance, prompting them to chase the thief. The thief was able to get away, much to the consternation of law enforcement.
    • Following that ordeal, there was a bit of surprise when it was discovered that the emeralds were returned to the Treasures. Eyewitness reports about the heist in question mentioned that an assortment of magic tricks was involved and that someone called Kaito Kid was responsible for all of it, including the "returning the gems" part. Law enforcement has made it a point to catch that Kid whenever he strikes again, mostly due to the notices that he sends out.
  • Of the various officers and detectives that are pursuing him, Kaito finds Inspector Zenigata to be quite amusing. Kaito is often reminded of Ginzo Nakamori, who has always targeted Kaito Kid and failed at it, whenever he's trying to avoid getting arrested by Zenigata and even finds the two to be similar in some aspects, right down to the "good at cases that don't involve their number-one target" bit.
    • While he has a decent number of recurring pursuers, there were some that he took plenty of issue with. Specifically, he has problems with the corrupt law enforcers as he felt that even if he told them his reasons for his thefts or the fact that he returns the items after a heist is over since they aren't what he's looking for in the long run, they wouldn't care about it nor his affable demeanor and just want him arrested or worse.
  • If he isn't going out performing heists as Kaito Kid, then Kuroba is probably hanging out with other magicians such as Oscar Diggs, someone who has used his profession for unconventional purposes. Zatanna Zatara and Dorothy Albright have also used their magic tricks outside of the stage. There is a possibility that there a collaboration between them is in development, though if it does indeed happen, whether or not it will be for a larger purpose remains to be seen.
  • He found a kindred spirit in Bugs Bunny, as they're both tricksters (though Bugs is a bit more selective on who to target) and known to disguise themselves as other people (though Kaito put a lot more effort in that regard compared to the wabbit). Weirdly enough, Kaito discovered that he didn't have much difficulty imitating Bugs' Japanese voice.
  • Kaito isn't fond of traditional guns, so he instead relies on a gun that can fire playing cards. This also makes him a bit more distinct from other thieves; thus if "Kaito Kid" is using an actual gun instead of his playing card gun, then it's not the real Kaito Kid that's making his escape. While some deities that are known to weaponize cards find it amusing to some degree, others feel that it's not a practical weapon to use during heists.
  • For some inexplicable reason, Kaito has a strong fear of fish and has been trying to avoid a lot of marine animals as much as he can, especially if they are threatening such as Bruce the Shark. The fear is bad enough that he winces a bit whenever he's provided seafood and tries not to eat such a food. He gets along well with Tohru because of it (although many gods find it ironic that Tohru, with the body of a sumo wrestler, can't stand fish).
  • Naturally, Kaito has come to learn of a slew of other thieves in the Pantheon. He finds the majority of them to be interesting rivals should he cross paths with them during his heists.
    • He actually heard about Lupin III beforehand, especially since that thief managed to disguise himself as Kaito Kid whilst Kaito Kuroba was watching the antics from the sidelines. Kaito was able to get back at him afterwards by stealing something that Lupin III was after before the latter arrived. The two are engaged in a somewhat friendly competition to see who can pull off more daring capers successfully.
    • The one thief that Kaito has a pronounced dislike towards is Felicia Hardy. While she has been both good and evil at different points in time, her going full-on evil and relying on a criminal organization to handle dirty work for her has gotten him rather unnerved. Even though Kaito can be a bit devious at times, he wouldn't try to put others at significant harm on purpose. While Black Cat doesn't really see Kaito as a threat, he has been keeping an eye on her in case the two were to come in direct conflict with each other.
  • Being skilled with disguises (though that only happens if the need arises), Kaito has gotten into a bit of a rivalry with other deities proficient in that field, which also included a couple of thieves. While The Spy is not a thief, his untrustworthiness is notable enough to a point where Kaito is very suspicious whenever The Spy has any involvment whatsoever during any of Kaito's heists.
  • Even though he wasn't that surprised to hear about Conana Edogawa being in the Pantheon considering that they have crossed paths a number of times in the past, Kaito finds the detective to be a worthy adversary given the skills established by such (and Conan has acknowledged Kaito's own skills). That said, they're pretty amicable towards each other even if they're trying to outwit each other.
